What we focus on

Sport Jiu-Jitsu

We love sport jiu-jitsu! It's like neatly folding clothing with people inside them. We break down proven Bjj techniques that are pressure tested to be effective against different sized opponents.


There is a difference between sport jiu-jitsu and jiu-jitsu for self-defense. We differentiate between the two and teach both so you have the tools to become a well rounded martial artist.


We are active in the competition scene and encourage (not require) our students to compete in local competitions. The jiu-jitsu community is a great one and it's important to pressure test your skills against other people so you know that what you're learning in class will work against an opponent at 100%.

A bit about us

Jiu-Jitsu for Everyone

Have you ever wanted to try something that you normally wouldn’t do and then thought, “This probably isn’t for me?” That’s nonsense, and here at Fulcrum we don’t tolerate nonsense. 

At Fulcrum BJJ we understand that you’re on your own journey. We encourage you to try new things, meet new people and find your balance in a safe, fun, and challenging environment. We wish we could tell you that this will be easy, but let’s face it, nothing worth its weight in salt is easy.

Here you’ll be challenged with top level Jiu-Jitsu instruction -- sport and self-defense -- taught by our talented black belt instructor, Professor Chris Serrell.

You’ll learn to control situations that you might think are uncontrollable and how to become comfortable in uncomfortable situations.

At Fulcrum BJJ it doesn’t matter if you’re a teacher, business professional, law enforcement, or military. You’ll get the same black-belt level instruction and attention that you deserve. Do you want to be part of our competition team? Heck ya. Do you want to learn self-defense? We’ve got you covered. Just doing it to get in shape, learn some skills and make friends? You’ve found the right place. 

Most importantly, we’re here for you, the student. We’re here to guide you on your journey and we’ll give you the best instruction and mentorship that we possibly can. Give us a chance to impress you and we will not disappoint. Our trial is affordable and includes a Fuji uniform. Plus, we do more than just teach Jiu-Jitsu. We encourage networking and relationship building with our student base by hosting get togethers, beach training days, and encouraging our young students to be an active part of their community.

Try us out. It’s a small effort on your part that could bring a big change to your life.

We wish you the best and hope to see you on the mats. OSS!
