Grappling Programs

Carefully designed over the course of many years and continually refined through elite level competition and training with many of the best fighters and coaches in the world, the Fifty/50 method of instruction has achieved success at every level of grappling and mixed martial arts.  Come and experience the difference for yourself.


BJJ Fundamentals I

Designed to jump start the martial arts career of a brand new grappler, this class provides a core of movements, techniques, strategies, and concepts that will form the base for learning everything that Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Wrestling, Judo, and Mixed Martial Arts have to offer.

With this class students with less than 6 months of grappling experience are able to progress and learn in a pace set specifically for them. Each class consists of a warm-up, a standing technique, ground skills, and some fitness training.


BJJ Fundamentals II

The stepping stone between the Fundamentals I and Advanced programs.  Designed for the Beginner/Intermediate student but still valuable to and attended by grapplers of all levels, this class provides students with a solid foundation in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu theory, strategy, and technique as they apply to self-defense and competition.

Classes consist of a warm-up, technical drilling, positional sparring, and free sparring.


BJJ Advanced

A fast paced and more in depth look at Jiu-Jitsu as it applies to competing with increasingly skilled opponents in both the standing and ground phases of combat.  Movements from the Fundamentals programs are woven together in succession and students further develop themselves as martial artists by interacting with the most experienced members of the academy.

Heavy focus is placed on flowing movement, drilling transitions and developing an attacking, submission-oriented style of grappling that fits each individual student’s physical and mental attributes.  An increased emphasis on extensive live sparring and stand-up grappling allow each individual to challenge themselves progressively as they gain experience.  This class is an absolute must for anyone interested in taking their skills to the next level.


Women's Jiu-Jitsu

Structured to achieve maximum comfort for females interested in pursuing Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, this class offers a relaxed, non-threatening environment ideal for the beginner or intermediate student to grow and learn quickly under the guidance of experienced and highly-accomplished female instructors.

One of the largest female-only Jiu-Jitsu programs in the country, the women who attend come from all walks of life: students, mothers, business women, military ladies, nurses, etc.  You don’t have to be young or fit to start! Our ages currently range from 14 to over 40.  Whether you are interested in self defense, fitness, or competition, this class adjusts to meet everyone’s needs.



A critical skill for Jiu-Jitsu and Mixed Martial Arts, as well as self-defense, wrestling is a fundamental part of the training at Fifty/50.

In this class, a student will learn to move and defend themselves on the feet, as well as how to attack with a variety of throws and takedowns.






Literally "The Gentle Way," Judo is a method of jacket wrestling pioneered by the legendary Jigoro Kano and is one of the most widely practiced sports in the world.  Emphasizing grip control, variety in throwing technique, and dynamic movement in the standing phase, Judo is a beautiful art and valuable addition to any grappler's skill set.
