Get Expert Jiu Jitsu Training in Chicago

Mac's Gym teaches creates a total-body workout and teaches real-world self-defense through authentic Jiu Jitsu training. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a critical piece of our mixed martial arts training. While striking is extremely important for our program, many MMA fights and self-defense scenarios end up on the ground. Therefore, it is important that our students are competent in grappling based combat sports, like BJJ. BJJ focuses on the skill of taking an opponent to the ground, controlling one's opponent, gaining a dominant position, and using a number of techniques to force them into submission.

Our BJJ program is lead by Coach Justin Doggett, a brown belt in BJJ and an IBJJF gold medalist. Coach Justin received his brown belt under 3rd degree black belt, Jay Valko. Professor Valko focuses on a competitive style of BJJ that includes techniques from Judo and wresting, and Coach Justin brings that focus to Mac's Gym, while also including aspects of striking and self-defense. Professor Valko trained under Professor Eduardo "Veio" de Lima, a 6th degree black belt in BJJ under Carlos "Carlinhos" Gracie, Jr.
