Practicing Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) is a highly effective way to lose weight. Jiu-Jitsu focuses on grappling and ground fighting, providing a full-body workout that improves strength, flexibility, and cardiovascular health. As a high-intensity, dynamic sport, BJJ burns a significant amount of calories, aiding in weight loss.


Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu boosts confidence by teaching self-defense, enhancing resilience, and promoting fitness. As you master techniques, overcome challenges, and progress in ranks, your self-belief grows. BJJ's supportive community further elevates your self-esteem and social confidence.


Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is more than a martial art; it's a community builder. Training together fosters deep bonds and trust among practitioners. As you share challenges and triumphs, you form a tight-knit tribe, united by respect and a shared passion, extending camaraderie beyond the gym.

My wife Melissa and I have been students of Hector Rosario for close to two years now and love the training, atmosphere, and people on the mats at Hero BJJ. The instruction is excellent and we've made a second family with the crew that we roll with each week. If you're interested in trying BJJ, I highly recommend it! We're both in our late 40's, so you're never to old to start!

Absolutely amazing gym and fantastic atmosphere. They are so friendly there and you’re treated like a family member. The coach does great at teaching moves and makes it simple.
Erin Minihan
We are so happy with our new gym, HERO. Our kids (4 & 6) have an absolute blast at every class and we love watching them learn and grow. The facility is super clean and comfortable to be at (especially when you’re there for hours at a time). The coaches truly care about each and every kid. We couldn’t be happier at HERO.
Stephanie Walfield
I highly recommend Hero Jiu Jitsu Academy. The instructors are top notch - they are not only knowledgeable about the sport, but also create a friendly and fun atmosphere. There is always music playing, there are fun theme nights, and while people all work really hard, there are also a lot of laughs on and off the mats. I love that there is a welcoming and supportive group of women at the gym, and that they offer a women's only class. That being said, I also always feel safe training with the male students here as well.
Melissa Hanlon
Hero jiu jitsu is like a second home for my children. My boys have been training with Coach Tony for 6 years and 3 years. He plays such an important role in their lives and has shaped them in so many ways. The confidence and perseverance that jiu jitsu has taught them shows in everything they do on and off the mat.
Sara Legere Cassavaugh
Hero jiu jitsu academy is not only a jiujitsu gym but a place of community. Over my time of training here I’ve never felt so welcomed. With helping hands everywhere you look, to people looking to give advice and pass down their special moves. Its just all around a great place to start the sport and it’s for a sure a place that will make you stick with it !

I've trained at a lot of spots over the years and Hero is my favorite by a long shot. Friendliest crew I've ever trained with and the most dynamic program I've ever seen. If you're a middle-aged guy like me that just wants to roll and work out or you want to be a serious competitor, they've got something for everyone.

HERO Jiu-Jitsu is the perfect place for my family and I. Everyone at HERO is family, ego’s are checked at the door. We learn from each other and push one another to be a better version of yourself. If your looking to get in shape, learn a skill, make some friends and be a better you then I recommend checking out HERO Jiu-Jitsu!
