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.


Choke CPH closed Aug 12-18


Next week (Aug 12-18) we will have maintenance & improvement work done at the headquarters in Copenhagen. There will be heavy work done on walls as well as painting and minor plumbing.

Therefore the school will be closed the whole week starting on Monday, August 12th.

We will resume the regular schedule the following Monday, August 19th. 

Due to the nature of the work to be done and to preserve our equipment, all the mats must be removed and stored safely. So we are looking for as many sets of helping hands as possible in order to achieve this task quickly and efficiently. When the work is completed, we will need help once again to put everything back in place. 

If you would like to help, please leave a post in our Facebook page. 

Thanks in advance and apologies for the inconvenience!
