Our Jiu Jitsu Academy Philosophy
We strongly believe in our fundamental roots to the Gracie Self-Defense curriculum. We also believe that the environment of a strong academy will promote healthy competition, and we stay current with the evolution of the sport. We are honored to be able to pass on the benefits of Jiu-Jitsu which are confidence, respect, honor, loyalty, strength, and friendship.
NORTH COAST JIU JITSU VISION
Our vision is to create a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu training academy/team that is in a category of one. We run our school as a true martial arts academy. The tenants of our school are what will separate us from the competition. We are not in this to “make a living”. We are in this to make a difference and we are both humbled and excited at the opportunity to make a positive impact on anyone’s life. We know how much Jiu-Jitsu has enriched our lives and are blessed to be able to share that with everyone. Our Vista gym programs/classes are geared toward everyone. Whether you’re just looking to get in shape, or ready to compete at the World Championships we are 100% behind the individual needs/goals of each of our students. We have beginners and advanced classes for adults and youth. We feel strongly about supporting our police and military, and we have classes specifically tailored to their needs. We have women’s self-defense classes and anti-bully programs. We have classes for the youth, and even toddlers ages 4 and up. Because our facility has two stories and two mats, we offer a family class where the kids class can run at the same time as adult classes on separate mats. We run our academy on virtue. We instill this in our students especially the youth. They are taught about how martial arts can instill honor, strength, integrity, respect, and friendship into our lives. This transcends the dojo and impacts us at school, work, relationships etc. NCJJ is a family atmosphere and we have as much fun as we can while we train. The friendships we make on the mat last a lifetime. We also have a gym with a functional weight training facility and offer boot camp classes to promote strength and weight loss. NCJJ is located near the 78 off Vista Village and Main St in the heart of downtown Vista – near the communities of San Marcos, Oceanside, and Escondido. We are across the street from Mother Earth Brewery, near Flying Pig, and Belching Beaver.
Train With Us
“To be champion all you have to do is train. But first, one must be a good person. Be a friend at the academy, learn to help. To be good at Jiu-Jitsu it’s all about believing and training, there isn’t that much else you can do.”
“It’s as real as it can get. That has made me a better person. It’s made me a better man. It’s made me understand myself, my weaknesses, my strengths, the shit I need to work on. Jiu-jitsu has been one of the most valuable tools I’ve ever had in my life.”
“The rule is to train, train and train some more. Train until the lamb becomes the lion”
