About Our School

To a Austin resident ready for the most awesome martial arts program around,

My name is Jeff Hughes, head instructor of The Pit Austin. I wanted to take a second to tell you a bit about our school, and what you can expect when you walk through our doors for the first time.

But just to warn you - when you come, prepare to be hooked. People fall in love with our programs from day 1, and I'm sure you will too. Here's a bit about why that happens...

Dedication.

Our expert martial arts staff is extremely, extremely, extremely dedicated to giving you the best possible experience you could ask for. They're there for every question you need answered... every boost of motivation when challenges arise... and to instill in you the wisdom that's been passed down through martial arts for thousands of years.

Our instructors care. They're here for you 110%

It's more than kicks and punches.

On the surface, our Austin martial arts program might seem like learning how to defend yourself and your loved ones. In truth, martial arts is so much more. Through the effort, dedication, and practice you put into every class...

... every area of your life will see improvement. You'll gain focus, determination and confidence that will seep into everything you do. Whether it's at work, at home, or anywhere else - you'll be changed for life.

Martial arts is just as much about work on who we are inside as it is about the individual techniques and skills. With our program, you'll reap the full benefit of this ancient wisdom.

Fun.

And last but not least, we know how to have fun! After all, too much work is simply off-putting. When an activity is all serious focus and hard work, it's easy to burn out.

Every class is filled with smiles and laughter. You'll make friends, enjoy your time, and walk away happier than when you came.

Anyway, I hope to see you soon. Feel free to explore our site, and learn more about each of our Austin martial arts programs. Then, call us when you're ready to get started.

But don't wait too long! Our classes are limited in size, and I'd hate to see you miss out.

To your success,

Jeff Hughes

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) is infamous as a grappling and submission martial arts. Though its origins date back to 20th century Japan... it went through intense modification in Brazil to become the renowned martial art that it is today.

BJJ is an unstoppable martial art in grappling tournaments... MMA competitions... or just as a powerful exercise to develop strength, stamina, and balance. And the hardcore training is a ton of fun.
