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.


Reduced schedule in July


The school in Copenhagen will operate with a reduced schedule during the first two weeks of July. While our head instructor Joao Pedro Santos visits his hometown of Rio de Janeiro, our purple belt instructors Nicolaj Garde, Rune Thorbek and Tajs Kolman will be in charge of the classes.

Please refer to the schedule below and plan your training accordingly:

And since July is traditionally the slowest month of the year, we will also do some repair and improvement work in the school. This will take place in the end of the month when the school will be closed for about a week. The exact dates are still being determined and will be posted in the website and in our Facebook and Twitter pages. Stay tuned!
