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.


Daytime Class on Wednesdays?


One of the most common requests we receive is about daytime classes at Choke Copenhagen. We used to offer this a couple of years ago and based on this Facebook post it's about time we bring it back. 


So we are going to have a trial run: a Mixed Class on Wednesday, Feb.12 from 12:00 to 13:00 with 30min extra in the end for those who want to practice a little longer. Marcus Dahl Rasmussen will be in charge of the training, so you know it's going to be good stuff.

If all goes well and we get enough people on the mats, we might add this class to our weekly schedule. So if you are interested, we need you to show your support on Feb.12.
