Central Oahu Jiu-Jitsu Academy is 100% dedicated to the restoration of the ART of Jiu-Jitsu and makes sure that every single student that walks onto our mat learns Self-Defense FIRST. All the fancy and flashy stuff comes after we are confident that our students would be able to defend themselves against an bigger, stronger, unskilled, opponent in a real street fight.


We offer classes in the art of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu® for kids and adults of all ages and skill levels. Our CLEAN, SAFE, and FUN learning environment, as well as a FAMILY oriented atmosphere is what makes Central Oahu Jiu-Jitsu Academy different from any other academy on the island!


Central Oahu Jiu-Jitsu Academy became an official Certified Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Training Center® (CTC) in 2015!


What's a CTC?

CTC's are martial arts schools that are authorized to teach the proprietary self-defense programs developed by Gracie University® Headquarters in Torrance, California. Brazilian Jiu-jitsu (BJJ) is one of the fastest growing martial arts on the planet, but the success of your jiu-jitsu journey will rely heavily on the culture of the school you attend and instructional methods utilized by your teachers. Both Noel and Ryan have undergone extensive training directly under Ryron and Rener Gracie to ensure that you are provided with the best possible learning environment on your path to jiu-jitsu mastery.

Structured Learning
Jiu-Jitsu is for everyone, but only if taught correctly. While most BJJ schools have taken a “one-size-fits-all” approach to teaching jiu-jitsu,
Central Oahu Jiu-Jitsu Academy has gone to great lengths to offer specific programs for each demographic: Gracie Bullyproof® for kids (ages 3-14), Women Empowered® for the ladies, Gracie Combatives® for beginner adults, and the Master Cycle® for advanced practitioners. Each program adheres to a set curriculum, so students know exactly what they will learn before they come to class. Every student is issued an attendance card on which we track daily progress, so they can see how much they’ve accomplished and exactly what it will take to move on to the next level. In a martial art where confusion and frustration are extremely common, we’ve gone to great lengths to ensure that you will enjoy the highly-structured and encouraging approach only found at Central Oahu Jiu-Jitsu Academy!


Safe Training Environment
Our students safety is our number one priority. In far too many BJJ schools, the classes are structured to meet the needs of the most elite students. If you are a beginner student, you are expected to serve as a “grappling dummy” for those above you. The thought process is, if you avoid injury, and stick around long enough, you will eventually figure it out. At
Central Oahu Jiu-Jitsu Academy we take the opposite approach. Firstly, there is no competitive sparring in our beginner programs. As a result, you’ll have a chance to learn all the beginner techniques in a fully-cooperative environment, with like-minded training partners, for 8-12 months. Once you move on to the advanced program, and you begin sparring, you will have the benefit of working with training partners, of every skill level, who are working with you rather than against you. This culture of collaboration and mutual benefit is extremely rare in jiu-jitsu, and we go to great lengths to make sure it is upheld at our academy.
