From an email to members in July:
Unfortunately we were given notice to leave the current Jiu-Jitsu location by the end of the month. On the upside, we have negotiated a screaming deal with Washington Hall ( http://www.washingtonhall.org). The new spot is located only a short distance from the current club at 14th and Fir. Among the highlights of Washington Hall are ample space, cleaner interior and exterior facilities, and better parking to name a few.
Washington Hall has been undergoing renovations in recent years after being selected as a historic landmark by the city’s Landmarks and Preservation Board. The space is on its way back to life, hosting performance art pieces and other events in recent months. Hidmo will also be an anchor tenant of the building.
The mission of SBJJ is centered around personal empowerment, according to their website:
SBJJ’s mission is to create Brotherhood/Sisterhood dedicated to training Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and the grappling arts for the purposes of physical fitness, mental perseverance, self defense, and competition. SBJJ is dedicated to helping each and every member attain their personal goals, whatever those may be.
