Located in Walton Hills, Ohio, 30 minutes between Cleveland and Akron, The Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Center of Ohio was founded by Chris Chard in 2004.
We train exclusively in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ), a grappling martial art developed from Japanese Jiu Jitsu and Judo by the Gracie Family in the early 20th century. While it is a relatively new martial art, no other martial art compares to the impact that BJJ has had on modern day fighting and self defense. Its rich and vibrant history is best described here.
