Brazilian Jiu Jitsu

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, often called “the gentle art” due to its emphasis on efficient use of grappling technique, enables the practitioner to overcome much larger, more athletic opponents. The same principles that allowed 170 lb Royce Gracie to defeat world class wrestlers, boxers and kickboxers weighing up to 280 lbs in the Ultimate Fighting Championships will also work for you.

Learn submissions, chokes, joint locks, grappling, throwing, striking, and how to retain composure in stressful situations, then apply your technique in live sparring. Whether training for competitive BJJ, Mixed Martial Arts, self-defense, or simply to get in shape, students find Brazilian Jiu Jitsu amazing, powerful and effective even after a few classes.

Haganah, the combat system used by the Israeli Special Forces, teaches how to end a no-rules attack on the street in the shortest possible time with maximum efficiency. Military personnel, law enforcement officers, and private security experts all praise the Haganah/F.IG.H.T. curriculum at Vienna Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Self Defense.  Haganah self defense system is a merger of the two official martial arts of Israel, Krav Maga and Hisardut, added military tactics thought in KAPAP and LOTAR and other hand to hand and armed fighting techniques used by Israeli Special Forces operatives in extreme hostile situation

Functionality in crisis scenarios is the prime goal of Haganah. The curriculum focuses on simple, effective techniques that are easily committed to muscle memory and adapted to any type of threatening encounter, including those involving weapons and multiple attackers.
