Brazilian Jiu Jitsu     

Get in Shape and Have Loads of Fun,

With the Fastest Growing, Most Exciting Martial Art in the World

The Connors Mixed Martial Arts Academy is now accepting new members for its Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Program. If you've ever wanted to learn Brazilian Jiu Jitsu or if you've always wanted to learn a Martial Art, this is Your chance!

Why Brazilian Jiu Jitsu?

1. It Really Works! – Every successful Martial Artist today – from Ultimate Fighting Champions to Self Defense Experts – incorporates Brazilian Jiu Jitsu into their training. You'll walk with confidence.

"It is a true 'self defense' art and a whole lot of fun."

"Several years ago after having seen the UFC, I was curious to see what all this Brazilian Jiu Jitsu was all about... How could a smaller man defeat a larger opponent? I was looking for a martial art that wouldn't require me to do flying backkicks or crazy acrobatics but want to feel like I could protect myself if need be. JiuJitsu gave me the confidence that I was looking for, and I know for a fact that it works if applied appropriately. It is a true "self defense" art and a whole lot of fun."

2. It's Fun – Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a form of grappling. Its movements are flowing and unlimited in number and variety. Remember wrestling around as a young kid? Brazilian Jiu Jitsu will take you back to those fun times!

"I find myself looking forward to the end of the work day, so I can train at Mad Dog."

"Good Morning John.

I just want to Say, " Thank you again". The training was great yesterday.
You are a great teacher and run a fantastic academy. I find myself looking forward to the end of the work day, so I can train at Mad Dog. See you Monday, on the mat. My back has never felt better.

Have good weekend."

3. It's a Great Work Out – You'll work every muscle in your body. Just try a class and you'll know immediately what a great work out it is.

"It has changed my body for the better as will yours."

"I have trained with John Connors since April of 2006. It has helped with my overall physical conditioning tremendously. I have replaced most of my cardio training with Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Muay Thai work.

John does a nice job of balancing working with him and pairing you up with the right partner so that you never feel overly dominated or disheartened. Others in the class are extremely helpful and patient.

I tell all my existing clients about the benefits of John's classes. It has changed my body for the better as will yours.

As important as weight training and proper diet is, without a regimented cardio program you will never achieve the lean body you are looking for. John does a great job of organizing his classes with a quick warm up, light stretching, learning proper technique, then ample time at the end for randori.

Another great benefit of training in the combat arts is the increased confidence you will have when in uncomfortable situations."

4. It's Safe – Our Academy is made up of a great group of students. Many of them are educated white-collar professionals – all of them are responsible, mature and respectful martial artists.  Brazilian Jiu Jitsu allows you to train and spar live without hurting yourself or your partner.

As the head instructor, I have a Black Belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and over 9 years of experience. Along with the other instructors, we will give you the guidance you need to get the most from your training.

"Everyone is friendly, everyone helps each other out, everyone has fun."

"In addition to the skill of the instructors, the atmosphere in Dedham is exceptional. Everyone is friendly, everyone helps each other out, everyone has fun. The school has an incredible combination of a fun and friendly environment with exceptionally fast-paced, high-level learning."

"I found that BJJ and MMA have allowed me to experience the best cardio workouts of my life."

Hey John-

Just wanted to Thank You for all your help. At the age of 38, after years of power lifting and bodybuilding, I developed a load of lower body injuries that prevented me from doing conventional cardio ie: biking running etc. But I found that BJJ and MMA have allowed me to experience the best cardio workouts of my life. Your training offers a great mind/body connection in the sense that it challenges you mentally as well as physically Your detailed and experience instruction has helped me attain my short term goals more quickly than expected. The team atmosphere that you have created at Connors Martial Arts  makes everyone proud of each others success'.

Thanks John, see ya on the mat!
