Improve Your Child's Fitness, Focus, Discipline, and Self Defense with Youth BJJ for Ages 5-13

Training Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is more than a sport activity -- it's an opportunity for children to learn lifelong skills and fall in love with a lifestyle they can follow for the rest of their lives.

Our Youth Brazilian Jiu Jitsu program includes training for competitive jiu jitsu, for fitness, and for realistic, safe self defense skills. Classes are taught by advanced black belt coaches, with curriculum designed for growing children.

We partner with families to improve our youth students' focus, discipline, and accountability on and off the mats.

We pioneered BJJ in Gainesville, and we're still innovating to bring you the best training possible, with solid roots.


Global MMA is home to hands down the most experienced professional coaches in our area. Our head coach Jason Dodd has advanced black belts in Japanese and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, and has been training BJJ for more than 20 years. We focus on solid technique for fitness, self defense, and competitive training, and offer a variety of BJJ classes for every experience level.

Specialize with Womens Only BJJ Training


More womens classes, designed for women by women.


We have a wonderful women's BJJ training community, and offer multiple ladies-only training sessions throughout the week. Many of our female students train in both our coed and womens program, and some train exclusively in womens classes. The choice is up to you! All classes in this program are instructed by an experienced female coach.


Outstanding Family Training and Environment

"We all train here at Global. What we love about it is the culture because it's just a big, giant family learning and getting better at life."


"I love Jiu Jitsu - it's awesome. I don't come here to get cool belts, I'm here to defend myself and defend others, and I just love it."

More Classes, More Drilling, More Rolling, More BJJ

In addition to the class and training session times listed below, we offer regular pop up drilling clinics and special seminars on a weekly basis. Members are able to train ad hoc for free by appointment, which allows you unlimited access to your BJJ experience.
