Private Lessons


While Santa Fe Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Academy is internationally known for the quality of its group classes, some people prefer to start with private training.

Private classes enable the instructor to teach in a way that will optimize learning and to adapt techniques to suit an individual’s strengths and weaknesses.

If you’re eager to learn Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Wrestling, or Muay Thai, with maximum efficiency, private training is for you!

Location and Scheduling Flexibility

Private classes offer maximum flexibility with training available daytime, evenings, weekdays, and weekends… if it’s convenient for you, it works for us.

Reach Mastery More Quickly

The only way to reduce the amount of time it takes to master a martial art is to set specific training/technical goals in each phase of the journey based on your strengths and weaknesses. Private training enables your coach to help you assess your ability and develop a personalized plan to take you efficiently to the next level!

Personal Progress Pacing

Due to the pace of group instruction, it’s possible to miss technical details during the presentation. Moreover, two weeks or more could pass before the class recycles and you get a second chance to learn the technique. In private lessons, your personal coach will pace the instruction according to your skills and needs, so you will never feel confused or overwhelmed.

Instant Feedback

In a group class, it’s simply impossible for the instructor to focus totally on one student, so you must rely on your training partners to help you learn the techniques. In private lessons, your coach is your partner for every technique, so they can physically feel all of your movements and provide instant feedback on every detail.


While Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a martial art that anyone can learn, many techniques still require some modification to fit the abilities of each student. In private lessons, your instructor will help you discover a specific style of jiu-jitsu that best suits you – so that you can maximize your proficiency based on your age, weight, height, and athletic abilities (or lack thereof).

Advanced Techniques

Each SFBJJ Coach and Professor has a unique style developed and refined over many years of teaching and training. In private lessons, you may learn your instructor’s secret techniques as well as key strategies that are often overlooked, undiscovered, or simply too complex to teach in a group class.
