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.


Early morning class on Thursday 13/03


With the initial success of the Wednesday 12 o'clock class, some students have now requested an early morning training session. This way they can get their Jiu-Jitsu fix before going to work. You will feel fresh and energized to start your day.

We are planning to make a test on Thursday, March 13th at 7:30am. This will be a 60-minute session with 30min open mat in the end.

Once again, we need your support behind this idea. If enough people show interest, we might add this class to our regular weekly schedule.

Jiu-Jitsu for breakfast anyone???
