Jiu jitsu is a contact and physical sport. Throwing and joint locks are all part of the sport. While under the instructor’s guidance, youngsters advance in belt degrees as they master the techniques of Jiu jitsu and increase their skill and love of the sport.

Jiu jitsu is designed for all youth to participate. The cost of the program is absolutely free. SFPAL incurs the cost of the program in order to provide a healthy alternative for youth residing in the City.

You can visit our sponsored vendor Nor Cal Fight Shop to purchase your Jiu jitsu gi (must be blue in color) at a pre-negotiated discounted price. Mention that you are a student of SFPAL’s Jiu jitsu program for the special price. Else you can bring your own uniform to class.



A special thank you goes out to the following individuals for volunteering to teach kids in the SFPAL Jiu-jitsu Program. Without their support and dedication this program would not have been possible.
Dante Giovannelli, Jared Hunter Berk, David Nastari, Jason Hannon, and Brad Smallwood.
