About Hendo BJJ

At Hendo BJJ, we're more than a martial arts academy; we're a community rooted in the principles of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu. Our training philosophy and core values guide our training and our interactions with each other.

We follow the Gracie and Machado families' training philosophies, emphasizing leverage, timing, and fundamental perfection in our BJJ techniques.

Regardless of size, speed, or strength, we believe that with proper training and dedication, anyone can master the art of Jiu-Jitsu. We stress humility, self-control, dedication, and the pursuit of perfecting techniques over beating training partners.

We believe that BJJ can be a life-long sport when practiced safely and with good training partners. We're not here to hurt people but to lift people up.

Our Core Values

What will get you fired from Hendo BJJ

  • Not abiding by core value #1. Being unsafe, or demonstrating repeated ego-driven behavior without correction will lead to you being asked to train elsewhere.
  • Not trusting the program. Not listening to your professor or coaches, asking about belt promotions (or being too obsessed with stripes/belts vs. learning) or doing things your own way will not only cause you to stall in your Jiu Jitsu journey, it will degrade your ability to be a good team member.
  • Foul language, or putting down/hurting others with your words and actions.
  • Stealing, lying, or gossiping.
  • Racism or Sexism and any harassing comments or behavior.
  • Breaking school policy, violating Coaches Standards.
  • Not observing Rigan Machado - Hendo BJJ Mat Etiquette.

We're committed to creating a safe, comfortable, and accepting environment for all our members. If this interests you and/or your kids, please give us a call or email Professor Larry at the number and email below.
