Combatives & Self Defense
Elite Training Organization
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) is a self-defense martial art that focuses on grappling/ground fighting. By using leverage and proper technique, BJJ allows virtually anyone to fight off and defeat much bigger and stronger opponents. 88 Tactical’s BJJ classes are taught by a group of expert instructors, including Scott Thompson, the longest Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu practitioner in the Midwest.
