Louisville Jiu-jitsu Team Wins Big in Cincinnati

Louisville BJJ Competition Team

It’s no secret that our Louisville Jiu-jitsu Team loves to compete. From our coaches, down to our kids. We have competitors at every age and weight (both male and female).


And in December we took a strong team up to Cincinnati for the IBJJF Cincinnati Open.


During the competition we had numerous stand out performances from our Louisville based Brazilian Jiu-jitsu team.


One in particular (which you can watch below), came from our head coach. Nick Albin, or better known as Chewy! (You can watch his match below and even check out his Chewjitsu YouTube channel here)


During the match, you’ll see a blend of Brazilian Jiu-jitsu along with Wrestling mixed in between. It makes for an exciting and effective style of Brazilian Jiu-jitsu for competitions.


Many of the students inside the gym did the same. (we will be posting their matches soon!)
