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.


Kids Classes in Choke Copenhagen

Franck hedehøj

On May 4 we had the first class in our new Kids Program at Choke Copenhagen. That Monday it was the kids aged 5 to 9 that took over the mats and the next day it was the 10 to 14 year olds. So far the program has been a success and we experience a steady influx of kids to our program.

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Blue Belt and father of five Franck is in charge of the training for both age groups. He is always assisted by another adult to provide the best learning environment for the kids. He provides an environment that is both fun and educational, where he mixes both Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and games.

The Kids Program runs Monday through Thursday from 16:00 to 16:45. Program is taught in danish, or if needed english.
