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.


Two BJJ Programs for Kids


Yesterday we started the second level of our Kids Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Program. After learning the basics in the first program that ended a couple of weeks ago, now it's time for them to start putting the pieces together. The second level involves a lot of drills, games and positional sparring (aka specific training).

It's amazing to see how fast the little ones pick up new moves and develop coordination. In order to keep everything fresh and challenging, we have expanded the program to two weekly classes on Mondays and Wednesdays at 16:30.

Interested? Would you like to give the gift of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu to your child? In the second week of June (Tuesday, 11/06) we start the first level of our Kids Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Program to a whole new group of students. We still have a couple of spots available, so please contact us asap.
