Why Brazillian Jiu Jitsu?
With so many martial art choices why should you choose Gracie Jiu-Jitsu over the rest of them?
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is different from other martial arts like Karate, Taekwondo, Muay Thai, Kung-Fu, and Krav Maga for its focus on ground fighting and grappling.
Real Life Application
It has a real life application since 90% of all fight and struggles go to the ground. While some might consider being on the ground as losing, that is the complete opposite of a BJJ student. In BJJ, students are taught how to control and neutralize a threat on the ground.
Any Size or Gender
Build your confidence by learning how to neutralize larger opponents with our character building ground game.
Give your children a strong foundation of a martial art they can use in real life while showing them respect & dedication

LEAD PROFESSOR BJJ
Ken is a lifelong martial artist. Growing up, he trained in Ninjutsu and Muay Thai before connecting with Vince Domingcil and the Bothell Kempo School in 2004. He then obtained the rank of First-Degree Black Belt and opened his own school teaching Kempo. After this accomplishment, he was looking for the next challenge in martial arts and found a passion for Jiu-Jitsu. What he enjoys the most about Jiu-Jitsu is the endless amount of knowledge that can be gained. His training background includes being a student with two world champions in the sport, Miriam Candoso and Andrea Emmell. In February 2021, he received his Black Belt in Jiu-Jitsu from Mark Buntich.
Ken has a passion for teaching others, from youth to adults. He strives to deliver the best experience for all students no matter their age or experience level. Ken is always learning and studying from other top-level instructors. His methods and teaching style are heavily influenced by Rob Biernacki from Island Top Team and BJJ Mental Models run by Steve and Matt Kwan, which incorporates scientific and conceptual methods for Jiu-Jitsu.
