Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) is a martial arts system that focuses on grappling, ground control and submissions. Focusing on skill and leverage, it allows a smaller person to overcome someone larger and much stronger. Its success in the UFC, Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) and as a form of self-defense is unparalleled.

Chesterville’s head instructors for the BJJ program are Norm Beauchamp and Daniel Gasser, BJJ practitioners training under Professor Ely Camejo.
