Ground X AJJ Programs

One of the primary goals at Ground X is to teach our students jiu jitsu, as fast and efficiently as possible. 

We like to think that we achieve this by using Ground X Programs. These programs are collections of curriculums. By having a path of learning planned and tested regularly, we can make sure that you’re not learning “whatever the coach feels like showing today”.

Learn more about Ground X Programs below, starting with the Beginner ones. 


A huge part of the American Jiu Jitsu mission is to make entry into our favorite combat sport/art a smooth experience. 

These 2 programs are designed to get you proficient and in love with jiu jitsu as quickly as possible. In the process they will save you from getting a bad impression of jiu jitsu. 


For members who have reached the rank of blue belt or got the green light from Beginner Program Coaches unlock several classes throughout the day. Great for people transitioning away from their old BJJ academy. 

Classes included:  12 pm classes, 6pm class & competition class.

Kids benefit tremendously from martial arts, but especially jiu jitsu. Our kids programs are growing the fastest and changing family lives. 

Forging bully-proof, confident, agile, disciplined, engaged and appropriately tired kids.

Nogi Program

Nogi is an important part of the curriculum here at Ground X. After all it is part of the Legion mission statement to offer elite instruction in all submission grappling styles. 

Our nogi classes are visited by members who only train without the gi (uniform) as well as members that train in both styles and rulesets.

Wrestling for Jiu Jitsu

It’s important to be able to take the fight to the ground. Both for self-defense and sport. That’s why we make sure to have a healthy focus on takedowns in all of the Ground X programs.

Ground X Open Mat

Every Sunday, we host our traditional open mat. Always free, always 30+ people and always with good music and good vibes. 

It’s just rounds for 2 hours, with a mix of gi and nogi. Find all open mat info here:
