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.


Sign-up for new Kids Program


Our first Kids BJJ Program has been a huge success. So much so that we are now already taking names for the next phase of the course that is scheduled to start in the first week of June.

The kids who completed the first course a couple of weeks ago have now started in the second level of the program. They now have two weekly classes on Mondays and Tuesdays from 16:30 to 17:20.

In the second week of June (11/06) we start the first level for a whole new group of kids. There are a couple of spots still available for this program, so if you are interested please contact us asap. The first level classes take place on Tuesdays from 16:30 to 17:20.
