I am very happy that a great jiu-jitsu academy  is finally available in Vista, Ca. It's the type of jiu jitsu that I like most because it provides instruction in several fighting styles - both Gi and No-Gi jui-jitsu, as well as self-defense/street fighting and grappling/wrestling.

As a 45 yro woman with no martial arts experience, I wanted to learn self-defense and lose weight while strengthening my core and muscle tone. I'm happy to say that it's turned out to be exactly what I was hoping for. After 6 months, I'm stronger than I've ever been (and have stopped lifting weights at home) and have learned so much from the Professors and other experienced students in the classes.

The classes fly by because you're so absorbed in trying to get a certain technique right. Somehow, at the end of each class, I find myself dripping sweat and completely exhausted with no idea how I got that way! The weirdest side benefit? My patience, especially with my son,  has gone way up. Cannot recommend this studio highly enough.

I started taking my son here a couple months ago, I had my doubts signing a 5 year old up for such a big commitment. This place starts and ends with professor Chris. I've been in and out of martial arts my entire life and can say professor Chris is everything you'd want in a teacher, especially for kids. I'm a father of 2 who just watches my son take these classes and I walk away trying to emulate his approach at how to teach my sons things. He is knowledgeable, patient and keeps the kids interested. His balance of being friendly and approachable is perfectly intertwined with an ability to command the kids' attention and respect. If you're looking into starting Jiu-Jitsu for yourself or your kids and you live around Vista, I highly recommend you give Professor Chris a chance. You won't regret it! Oss

This academy is by far the best jiu-jitsu gym I have been to. It's a traditional training environment that has opened its doors to all levels of experience. Professor Chris is patient and knowledgeable in his teachings. I've never left a Gi class feeling disappointed, or without confidence. I would strongly recommend this martial arts studio in Vista to anyone looking for a new place to train!

This was the best experience of our vacation! The owner Mikita was fantastic , the sweetest, most genuine human we have ever met...My husband and I were treated like family for the entire 4 hours that we trained , and for 2 of those hours my cousin joined who had never even put on a gi before and they were so great with her! I'd come back to this martial arts studio a million times! We found our forever Vista Cali jiu-jitsu home! Can't wait for our next visit from st. louis!!! Thanks guys!

My daughters and I have been coming to this jiu-jitsu studio in Vista, Ca for about 6 months. Both professors are great teachers and truly care about their students. The studio has a great atmosphere where we support, and challenge each other. I strongly recommend this martial arts studio to anyone interested!

I started training at Fulcrum Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu in Vista when they opened about 3 and a half months ago and I love it. I've been super impressed with the professionalism of the staff and the level of instruction that our Black Belt professors impart on us. In just these short few months I've gotten better at managing stress in my daily life, my cardio has improved vastly, and my core strength as improved exponentially. I would recommend that anyone who is interested in Jiu-Jitsu give this martial arts Academy a try.
