Why Our Students Train BJJ at Fusion

At a young age, Helio Gracie realized that modified Japanese Jiu-Jitsu techniques would enable a smaller person to defend themselves against stronger opponents. Through the years, he proved his system’s effectiveness by not just defending against, but defeating larger competitors. Helio’s system is known as Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, and was passed from Master Helio to Pedro Sauer, and from Pedro to Eddie Edmunds.

  • Multiple Black Belt instructors bring decades of expertise to your classes.
  • Our head instructors are out training with every student, from white belts to brown belts, every day.
  • You’ll feel at home and welcome from day 1. Let us know what your goals are: fitness, self defense, competition, or meeting new people. We’re here to help you succeed.
  • No prior experience in martial arts necessary! We love welcoming new people to the Jiu-Jitsu world.

Loved it! Stopped in during my travels through Salt Lake City and was welcomed with open arms… Everyone was willing to help and seemed focused on better their skill set. They even had a new guy come in that particular day and they set a instructor to the side just to focus on him!

Eric M.
Amazing school!! They all have so much skill and experience, and there is always a class I believe there is 19 a week. I can go to any class I would like and they are always willing to roll and work one on one after class, it’s great exercise and I learn something new everyday.
Travis W.
Eddie and the instructors at Fusion are awesome, and so are the students. Even on the first day, I never felt like an outsider. If you’re looking to start training Jiu Jitsu, it would be a mistake not to drop in and try a class at Fusion Academy.
