Arlington Heights Adult Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Brazil-021 is a martial art combat sport, and a self defense system that focuses on grappling and especially ground fighting.  Lionize Training Center would like to welcome our main Brazilian Jiu Jitsu instructors Andre Terencio and Hannette Staack.

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu was formed from Kodokan Judo ground fighting (Ne-Waza) fundamentals that were taught to Carlos Gracie by master Mitsuyo Maeda. Brazilian jiu-jitsu eventually came to be its own art through the experimentations, practices, and adaptation from the Judo knowledge of Carlos and Helio Gracie, who then passed their knowledge onto their family.

BJJ promotes the concept that a smaller, weaker person can successfully defend against a bigger, stronger assailant by using leverage and proper technique, taking the fight to the ground – most notably by applying joint-locks and chokeholds to defeat the other person. BJJ training can be used for sport grappling tournaments (gi and no-gi) and mixed martial arts (MMA) competition or self-defense.[2] Sparring (commonly referred to as “rolling”) and live drilling play a major role in training, and a premium is placed on performance, especially in competition, in relation to progress and ascension through its ranking system.

Lionize Training Center offers both Adults & Kids Brazilian Jiu Jitsu classes. Kids Jiu Jitsu is a great way to keep your kids safe from bullying, help them build their confidence and discipline, and stay healthy through exercise.

What differentiates Brazil-021 from other schools

  • Besides offering the highest level of Jiu-Jitsu, fundamentally we stress and follow the philosophy of
    JiuJitsu as a martial art (and not as a sport);
  • Focus on respect within the hierarchy;
  • Principles, teaming, etiquette, drive are more valued than a medal
  • Services are also geared towards competitors and developing champions;
  • All members of Brazil 021 help our competitors to achieve through support, training,
    representation at events;
  • Special high intensity training classes geared towards competition;
  • Education on mental toughness and discipline required to succeed in competition;
  • We seek to promote Jiu-Jitsu as an individual life style through physical activity in a balanced manner.

Brazil-021 School of Jiu Jitsu seeks much more than winning competition medals. Our resolution is to promote health, well-being, self-confidence, and mental toughness in a safe, encouraging, and inspirational environment to properly prepare our students for all of the challenges of life. Ultimately, we strive for the children of our current students to become our future students.
