Brazilian Jiu-jitsu 

Brazilian Jiu-jitsu is a grappling-based martial art. The central theme is how to control a resisting opponent, using minimum effort and strength, in ways that force him to tap (submit).  It also teaches how to take down an opponent from the standing position to the ground using judo and wrestling techniques. At SXM BJJ, Japanese judo terms are used to describe takedowns and many ne-waza (ground) techniques. 

On the ground, we learn how to use leverage and technique to dominate and ultimately submit our opponent. Size, strength and aggression can be overcome with proper technique. The study of Jiu Jitsu brings a deep understanding of the workings and range of our human body.

Jiu Jitsu is physically and mentally demanding. Students benefit from increased fitness, problem-solving ability, self-knowledge and the many social benefits of working within a large group of like-minded students. Sweat, smile and learn.

Great martial arts school in a fun safe environment with world class instruction. Melissa is as technical as they come. Finding someone who really cares about your kids is not to be taken lightly. Bravo.

As a former Division 1 wrestler, my expectations were high when joining SXM BJJ. I can honestly say it exceeded any and all expectations I had. Truly an amazing place to train and couldn't have asked for a better instructor, mentor, and friend. Melissa is one of the best instructors I have ever had the pleasure of working with and is one of the most technical BJJ practitioner and teacher you will ever roll with if given the opportunity.

SXM BJJ is Legit. I planned a vacation to this Island because I heard how good the training was here. Melissa and the crew made me feel welcome and the training was tough. Her Ginastica Natural warm-ups were awesome too.
