Comprido BJJ is the flagship academy of Team Brasa which recently won the Chicago International Open for the sixth consecutive time.

Brazilian jiu-jitsu, BJJ, is a martial art, combat sport, and a self defense system that focuses on grappling and especially ground fighting.

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu promotes the concept that a smaller, weaker person can successfully defend against a bigger, stronger assailant by using leverage and proper technique – most notably by applying joint-locks and chokeholds to defeat the other person. BJJ training can be used for sport grappling tournaments (gi and no-gi) and mixed martial arts (MMA) competition or self defense. Sparring (commonly referred to as “rolling”) and live drilling play a major role in training, and a premium is placed on performance, especially in competition, in relation to progress and ascension through its ranking system.

Sport Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu’s focus on submissions without the use of strikes while training allows practitioners to practice at full speed and with full power, resembling the effort used in a real competition. Training methods include technique drills in which techniques are practiced against a non-resisting partner; isolation sparring, commonly referred to as positional drilling, where only a certain technique or sets of techniques are used, and full sparring in which each opponent tries to submit their opponent using any legal technique.

All BJJ classes are taught by Rodrigo “Comprido” Medeiros. Comprido is a highly decorated, world-class practitioner and competitor. Comprido is a 7 time World Champion and 2 time Absolute Champion and trainer to past and present UFC stars such as Brock Lesnar, Mike Russow, and Demian Maia to name a few. Comprido has created a clean, family friendly, and safe environment that includes children, teens, and adult women and men.
