Gi and No-Gi Jiu-Jitsu

Our Gi and No-Gi Jiu-Jitsu team is led by Robert Biggs. He holds a black belt in Jiu-Jitsu from Christophe Leininger, a  UFC Veteran and Judo Medalist. Robert also holds a purple belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Blue Collar Fitness has an affiliation with Nava Jiu-Jitsu (team Nava Uniao), and Coach Paul Nava visits monthly to teach class as a special guest instructor. During classes students will incorporate drills, submissions, defense, and escapes along with learning theory, chain grappling, while doing live matches and more.

Also leading the team is Joshua Stockman, who teaches Gi and No-Gi Jiu-Jitsu. Josh is an accomplished grappler with an impressive resume, including No-Gi Worlds Champion, 9-time NAGA Champion, 3-0 MMA record and many gold medals in both gi and no-gi BJJ tournaments and has achieved the rank of brown belt in BJJ. Josh is also an avid practitioner of Hatha Yoga, incorporating functional flexibility and natural strength into his jiu-jitsu.

Our team competes often in local tournaments, and state, national and world-level championships.
