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.

We will start the day at 11:30 with the belt ceremony. After so many hours of training and dedication on the mats, it's time for many students to move up the BJJ ladder and get a darker belt around their waist. And even if you are not up for promotion at this point, we need you there to share this special moment with your friends and training partners. We also need strong arms to help with the belt whipping!


Besides the belt ceremony there will be the usual team games, group pictures and a technical seminar with Professor Joao Pedro Santos. We close the event with a relaxed sparring session where students from different Choke schools will have the chance to train and learn from each other.

Students from Copenhagen will have the option to spend the night at Choke Århus. It might also be possible to get a ride to/from the event with those who are driving from Copenhagen.

After the graduation we will go to an Italian Restaurant nearby where a buffet will be awaiting. We need to know asap how many people will be having lunch so we can make the buffet arrangements.
