Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ)
is a sophisticated extension of pre-1925 Kodokan Judo (known
then as jiu-jitsu). It arrived in Brazil when Mitsuyo Maeda
first brought it with him during his visit to Brazil with the
hopes of establishing a Japanese colony/community in the
country. It was further developed by the Gracie family during
the mid-20th century. The primary difference between Judo,
Japanese Jujitsu, and Brazilian Jiu-jitsu is the focus on ground
fighting and ground grappling. In addition, like Judo, Brazilian
jiu-jitsu encourages "randori" or free sparring against a live,
resisting opponent. Thus, students have an opportunity to test
their skills and develop them under realistic conditions, with
minimal risk of injury.
At Lowell Anderson's Brazilian Jiu-jitsu USA, you'll learn only
and all the best techniques in this versatile art. Lowell
Anderson is a highly recognized and expert source in the world
of Brazilian Jiu-jitsu and the martial arts. He was a direct
student of the Gracie family, primarily under Rickson Gracie,
and he served as the head instructor for the Gracie training
headquarters in Torrance, CA. Please read the instructor
biography page if you are interested about learning more about
Lowell Anderson and his background.
At LA BJJ USA, you will
learn a wide variety of highly effective techniques derived from
Lowell Anderson's extensive training and years of experience.
Neck cranks, headlocks, chokes, arm locks, ground-fighting
positions, offensive moves, defensive moves, transitions,
escapes, foot locks, take downs, sweeps, and throws are just
some of the many techniques and strategies you will learn to
employ here at LA BJJ USA.
Your level of fitness will dramatically improve. Breathing and
relaxation techniques are taught so you can maximize your energy
and endurance. You will develop a total body tone and workout
as BJJ incorporates the entire body on all planes (flexibility,
cardio-vascular, muscular, endurance, speed, etc).
We currently offer group sessions as well as private sessions.
Group sessions offer a very diverse way to train on all levels.
Our friendly environment can be tailored to each individual
needs, desires, and skill levels. If you like to take it slow,
we can match you with students with similar training routines.
If you like competition, super hard work, and a more intense
routine, we can match that as well. Everybody of all ages will
fit in very nicely whilst having their individual needs met even
in our group environment. We have just about everyone from
every level of fitness, skill level, age, gender, etc training
with us. Just think of our atmosphere as a club environment.
There is a fantastic balance between focus as well as fun and
A typical group session involves learning new techniques and
drilling those techniques while instructors actively help and
answer any questions you may have. The last part of class
involves a free sparring session where students have the
opportunity to try out their techniques safely against a
resisting opponent of whatever skill level they choose.
Private sessions offer one-on-one instruction tailored to your
particular strengths and/or weaknesses and/or any personal
desires that you would like a routine tailored to. Private
sessions are all about you. You will learn much faster in this
setting and see dramatic results.
There is no typical private session. Private sessions are very
special and will therefore be tailored specially for you. We
highly recommend these if you are serious about refining your
techniques or training on a new level!
It's recommended that you attend group sessions regularly and
supplement these group sessions with private lessons to enhance
and build upon your strengths and weaknesses.

schedule. We are excited to hear from you and we will answer
any questions you may have!
