Our mission is to inspire our students in a positive setting where anyone can train, transform and evolve their body, mind and spirit. Our vision is to provide the ultimate experience in martial arts for those who want to progress, excel beyond their limits and achieve their very best – that is the ZMATA experience.
ZMATA is a martial arts training academy primarily focused on the art of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ). Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a martial art, known as the gentle art that teaches a smaller person how to defend himself against a larger adversary by using leverage and proper technique. The Gracie family, the founders of BJJ, modified judo and traditional Japanese Jiu-Jitsu to create the art. It contains stand-up maneuvers, but it is most famous for its devastating ground-fighting techniques. We offer several different classes for all ages (4 years old and above) with all skill levels (beginner to advanced) teaching the martial art of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.
