  • Overall Experience

 We visited Electric Jiu-Jitsu Huntington Beach a couple of times while in Cali for IBJJF tournaments. Kurt and I stopped in to get some training while in town. We were not disappointed at all. Electric Jiu-Jitsu is Professor Joao Assis’s academy.  A Checkmat 1st-degree black belt.  The caliber of guys in this relatively small facility is top-notch. As the live rolls began we pared up with the Electric Jiu-Jitsu/Checkmat team members. The training was great, Professor Joao Assis was giving pointers to Kurt and me as we rolled with his team members there was no favoritism. Just great Jiu-Jitsu. The training was intense with such skilled Jiu-Jitsu practitioners on the mats of all belt levels. This made  Electric Jiu-Jitsu one of my favorites visited gyms so far.  

  • Facility Electric Jiu Jitsu Huntington Beach 

The Electric Jiu-Jitsu facility is smaller than most of the gyms I have visited. One main mat area surrounded by break-proof glass over the windows that line the mats. The gym is very clean and in great shape. It is located in a small strip type mall and was very easy to find.
