Welcome to Barum Jiu-Jitsu San Diego, an association of the powerful BJJ Revolution Team. Barum Jiu-Jitsu San Diego teaches under the great Carlson Gracie. We proudly provide techniques and training programs that are fun, professional, and rewarding.
Barum Jiu-Jitsu San Diego consistently provides support to students who wish to compete. Our vision of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is to create a winning attitude in our students, in which over time, create champions on and off the mat. No matter the age or the skill level of the student, our jiu-jitsu instructors are patient, well-trained, and teach the art progressively.
Head instructor, a Rodrigo Medeiros black belt, Alfredo Barum opened the academy in 2009 with his wife Graziela Barum. We welcome any one interested to stop by for a week of free training, or to have any questions answered regarding our beloved sport.
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is not based on strength. It uses opponent's strength and force against themselves. The key is balance (known as base) and leverage. Typical positions include the "guard", the "mount" and the "side-mount".
A number of attacks can be made, ranging from chokes, arm-bars, and joint locks. The majority of real fights end up grappling on the ground. Knowledge of ground fighting is essential, not just for a complete martial arts background, but also for self defense. No other martial art addresses ground fighting as effectively as Carlson Gracie Jiu-Jitsu.
