RADA Jiu Jitsu Academy is proud to offer the best Brazilian Jiu Jitsu classes in La Jolla, CA. From complete beginners, to professional mixed martial artists, to law enforcement officials, all are welcome at our BJJ academy. We focus on the team, and how we can best fulfill the goals of our students. Not everyone has the same reasons for training in the Martial Arts. Some enjoy the exercise, others want to learn self-defense, and some may wish to pursue a career in MMA or competition. No matter the case, we have the Jiu Jitsu classes in La Jolla for you!
The philosophy of this team is to teach functional Brazilian Jiu Jitsu that you will keep with you for the rest of your life. You will not get watered-down techniques, or be taught how to win a tournament without knowing how to defend yourself on the street. We will teach you to be comfortable anywhere, with or without strikes; on the feet, on the ground, off your back, how to control the situation, and how to have fun while learning it! Many of our students are members of law enforcement, mixed martial artists, and members of the Armed Forces. People have diverse needs, which is why we have assembled equally diverse resources for the students at our school.
We are led by Black Belt Professor, Rafael Dallinha, who is a 3rd Degree Black Belt from Brazil.
Our instructors are hands-on teachers, often rolling with students of various ranks and skill levels. We teach philosophy, focusing on clearly explaining the principles behind the techniques of Gracie Jiu Jitsu in a way that people can understand. We then incorporate drills that help students internalize those techniques in order to use them in live situations. Whether your child is curious about learning a new discipline, or you are interested in trying out a class yourself, you’ll find that RADA Jiu Jitsu Academy offers the best selection of Jiu Jitsu classes in La Jolla.
