Beginner-Friendly Structured Learning

Nobody wants to have their first experience with Jiu-Jitsu by getting easily defeated and humiliated by more advanced students. This is why our all our Baltimore, MD BJJ programs are designed to take you at your current fitness and skill level and gradually build you up to get you into your best fighting shape. You don’t need to be in shape already, or have previous grappling or martial arts experience.

We build your martial arts foundation using our Fundamentals and Intermediate curriculum – the same way we built up our professional fight team. We’re very proud of our ability to turn the average student into a skilled Jiu-Jitsu practitioner almost without them noticing.

All classes are divided into levels that allow you to learn at the pace that best fits your current experience and fitness level. You’ll start in the BASICS program where you will learn Jiu-Jitsu techniques. As you keep improving, you’ll start training in the Advanced and maybe even the Competition Team level classes. And at each step of the way, you’ll be getting stronger, losing weight, and having fun.

Personal Jiu-Jitsu Training Available

Private Jiu-Jitsu training is available. If you are under a strict schedule or would just like to supplement your group classes, personal lessons are a great option.

Our trainers will provide a customized session for you – that will match your experience and fitness level. These lessons are popular for busy executives, children who aren’t ready for the adult Jiu-Jitsu classes, as well as those with special concerns such as religious or health restrictions.

Meet your goals head-on with best-in-class personal training at Crazy 88 Mixed Martial Arts.

World-Class, Proven Results in Jiu-Jitsu and No-Gi Grappling

Not just a few favored students — our instructors believe in the potential of every student to join the ranks of our champions!

In the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu world, there are 4 major tournaments that comprise the “Grand Slam” of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. These competitions are:
• The European Championship
• The Pan-American
• The Brazilian Nationals
• The World Championships

The fighters who come out on top at these tournaments are considered the best of the best. In the Baltimore area, no school has produced a world champion except Crazy 88. Not one other. We get students all the time who have left other training facilities after they realize the ‘World Championship’ promises made by other instructors were run by other, minor organizations. No school except Crazy 88 has even produced a medalist at one of the 4 major tournaments, much less all of them. See a full list of our Crazy 88 Medalists→

Students involved in our program have consistently found success at the highest levels of Jiu-Jitsu competition, year after year!
