Our commitment to our students is to always provide a quality learning environment with the most up to date information. We instructors must keep our knowledge and skills sharp by constantly training and studying the art throughout our lives.  We would like to maintain a positive learning environment where no motivation is lost. Encouraging our students to learn, progress and grow through fitness and martial arts is our core belief at Tatami.


Our kids Jiu-Jitsu Self-Defense is a confidence and character development program for children (ages 5-15) and no experience is necessary to get started (we offer private lessons for children ages 3-4). Your child will learn verbal assertiveness skills as well as non-violent self-defense techniques to stay safe if physically assaulted. We don’t teach the children how to punch or kick, instead, we use leverage-based control holds to neutralize threats without violence. Bottom line: we will prepare your child to neutralize bullies without becoming one!


Jiu Jitsu Self-Defense is our beginner program for adults. In this program, you will learn the 36 core techniques of Jiu-Jitsu Self-Defense in a fun, safe, and cooperative environment. Each one-hour lesson addresses one standing and one ground self-defense technique. You can start the program at any time and participate in any class without previous experience and, since safety is our number one concern, there is no competitive sparring in this program. Upon successful completion of the Jiu Jitsu Self-Defense program, you will qualify for advancement into the jiu-jitsu program!
