ABOUT OUR JIU JITSU SCHOOL

Xequemate's primary focus is on the martial art of Jiu-Jitsu, rather than the sport. Jiu-Jitsu is a complete martial art that encompasses throws, striking, grappling, submissions, as well as weapons defense, disarming and retention. We offer classes for children, adults and executives. Competition is a great place to sharpen the combat sword. Although Sport Jiu-Jitsu is only a subset of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu, it provides a means to test yourself in a safe environment. We have a tested and proven competition team,  headed by Professor William "Bill" Perez We offer Gracie Self Defense and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu classes to fit any schedule. Men, women and children.
