Jiu Jitsu, Grappling & Wrestling
For All Skill Levels


Eastside Grappling was established in 2015 with the goal to open an all-inclusive and welcoming environment for grapplers of all backgrounds.

We focus on creating a learning environment that is friendly, fun and competitive while eliminating the dogma that is found in many traditional schools. You wont be asked to bow to a million times before stepping onto the mat and our coaches go by their first names instead of Professor or Sensei. You can still train hard and improve, even if you don’t have to ask for permission to use the restroom.

We offer classes 7 days a week with offerings available for all skill levels. Whether you are a seasoned grappler, an experienced competitor, or just beginning your martial-arts journey we look forward to helping you advance.


You don’t need to get into shape before you start.

The best time to start doing jiu jitsu is right now. You wouldn’t wait to be a professional chef before you started cooking. And you don’t have to wait to be in shape before starting jiu jitsu (though we do offer fitness classes as well). You’ll learn new valuable skills in grappling and self-defense all while getting a great workout in. It will be fun, and you might even get to put your knee on someones face.
