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.


Surprise promotion in CPH


Last Friday we had a surprise promotion just before the sparring class in Copenhagen. Tristan Regan, a long time student from Choke Århus, was in town for a short visit and was finally awarded his blue belt from Professor Joao Pedro Santos.

Tristan was supposed to be promoted during last year's graduation in Århus, but he left for a six-month internship in Japan just days before the big event. While in Tokyo he stayed active on the mats of Triforce Gym Gotanda and even competed at the IBJJF Asian Open.

He is a very talented student and a great, positive guy to be around. The promotion was very well-deserved and we look forward to seeing him develop further. Congrats!
