Why Our Students Train NoGi at Fusion

NoGi Jiu-Jitsu focuses on a clinch-based methodology to increase the effectiveness of grappling when striking is involved, improving it for street and MMA situations. By focusing on clinching, the need to take hold of your opponent’s clothing to control the distance and mitigate the damage is removed, and the NoGi practitioner becomes comfortable moving around, and setting up submissions within this posture that both defends against strikes, and makes it difficult for the opponent to disengage.

  • Black Belt lead instructor and multiple brown belts who have trained in a variety of NoGi grappling, including 10th Planet and Wrestling, bring a fusion of styles to every class.
  • Instructors are high belts and out training with every student, every day.
  • Whether 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.

I started at Fusion about 3 months ago… I couldn’t say anything nicer about Eddie and all of the guys that train there…. it’s real deal technical BJJ training, with an emphasis on keeping new people safe and un-injured.
William M.
Welcoming and family friendly atmosphere, but with high level instruction. A great place for every family member (including families of one) to train and get really good at Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.
George P.
Everyone is always welcoming, and gives feedback on your progress. Many different skill levels are on the mat, so it always exposes you to different things to work on.
