Atomic Jiu Jitsu co-owner Adrian Trevino said his team’s focus and passion centers on teaching skills that build confidence in all aspects of students' lives.

“We believe that building a strong community begins with the individual,” Trevino said. “It is our hope that each person who walks through the doors of our training center will walk away after each class understanding a little more about their self worth.”

Atomic Jiu Jitsu is affiliated with world champion Cleber Luciano and is also a Gracie Jiu-Jitsu-certified training center. Trevino said it is the only gym in the world to be have both associations. The academy is also certified to teach muay thai.

In addition to offering advanced jiujitsu and competition-based classes, instructors also teach classes focused on anti-bullying and combat.

Self-defense classes for women are taught by women and may only be attended by women.


"It is literally the safest space that could be," Trevino said. "Whenever they need bad guys to do techniques against ... the only two men that are allowed to go in there are my partner and myself."

Atomic Jiu Jitsu’s grand opening is scheduled for April 10, but it is open and accepting students. Trevino said the gym also expects to expand its hours of operation in the future.

“We are extremely driven to spread jiujitsu throughout our community because we truly believe that by doing so the world around us will be a safer and more peaceful place to live,” Trevino said.
