Choke Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu was established in 2004. We are the most traditional BJJ organization in Denmark and the only group that is directly connected to the Gracie Family in Brazil and in the United States. In fact, when the Gracies come to Scandinavia they usually train and teach at our schools.

We have two schools - Copenhagen & Århus - and over 700 members.

Our founder and head instructor is Professor Joao Pedro Santos, who is a third degree black belt under 8th degree Carlson Gracie disciple Sergio "Bolao" Souza. 

The name Choke is short, strong and relates directly to Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. According to Grand Master Helio Gracie, it is also the most powerful move in Jiu-Jitsu . It was suggested by Morten Pedersen, one of our first students.

Our logo is evidently based on the traditional Gracie Academy logo that's been used in Brazil for almost a century. There are three equilateral triangles inside the circle. They represent balance and connection to our roots.


Our Kids Program starts in March


We are very happy to announce that we will finally start the Kids Program on March 4th. This first program will last for two months with weekly classes on Mondays 16:30-17:20. It will focus on fun and educational games based on natural body movements from Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. We had some intro classes in the past weeks and the program was a huge success with kids and parents alike.

We always hear our students talk about how much they wish they had started Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu years earlier. Well, now you can do that for your child! We already have a group of about 10 kids age 8-10 to start on March 4th. If you would like to sign up your kid, please contact us asap. There are alimited spots available for this first program.
