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.


Gi & Nogi


Last night we had some very good training sessions at Choke Copenhagen. There were two groups practicing at the same time, one with Gi, the other Nogi. While most students were going over Nogi back attack variations from deep half guard, others were in the smaller mat area drilling specific moves in the Gi for the upcoming Roskilde BJJ Open. 

In the Fundamentals Program we went over Class #4 which focused on mount position pins, counters and submissions. And to top it off there were heavy sparring rounds between Marrtin Rylander, Matt Campbell and Martin Prip. Great vibe and atmosphere. Tonight there's more!
