Adult Beginner Jiu-Jitsu Program! 


Looking to get in shape? Always wanted to try Jiu-Jitsu? Looking to learn proven & practical Self-Defense? Why not try one of our Adult Beginner Classes?


We have a proven curriculum to help beginners not only learn the art of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu, but to be able to retain and apply the moves in a real life situation. At NSBJJ we believe in teaching Self-Defense first, and keeping the art of Jiu-Jitsu alive, staying true to the origins. Head Instructor and 3rd Degree Black Belt, Professor Danny Morera has more than 20 years of practicing & teaching Jiu-Jitsu, receiving his Black Belt from Professor Roberto Maia of Boston Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu in 2008. Every Beginner class is taught by Danny and assisted by Angela Morera, to ensure all of our Beginners get one on one help and professional assistance.

        How can our Academy Help your Child With Learning and School?


  1. At North Shore Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Academy we focus on your childs individual growth, not team competition. Many kids with learning and attention issues struggle with the pressure of having to compete with other kids. We focus on individual improvement, and friendship, not competing with one another. 
  2. We offer concrete, attainable goals. Some kids with learning and attention issues may feel like they never “win” at anything. At NSBJJ kids work at their own pace. They earn different stripes & belts every time they reach a specific time or skill level. This will boost your childs self-esteem and keep them motivated. 
  3. Techniques and moves are broken down and repeated for easier learning. Kids learn gradually, repeating and adding steps as they go. They learn to anticipate which step comes next and eventually put everything together into fluid movements. All of this gives working memory a workout, but in a way that kids may find manageable.
  4. Kids will learn self-control and concentration (Focus). Focus is very important in Martial Arts. Kids must stay focused to learn and to perform. When a child’s focus drifts, we make sure to intervene and refocus the child. This allows them to reset and ready themselves for what’s next.
  5. Jiu-Jitsu can help with coordination. The deliberate, repetitive movements of martial arts can help kids develop a better feel for their body in space, which can be useful to kids who struggle with motor skills. This may also help some kids understand the power of the mind over the body, which some find to be valuable for kids with attention or learning disabilities.
  6. We provide structure and clear expectations for behavior. At NSBJJ we have clear rules and constantly reinforce them. We also emphasize good behavior in and out of class. 
  7.  AT NSBJJ we provide a safe outlet for excess energy. Contrary to what some might expect, martial arts specifically Jiu-Jitsu (The Gentle Art) does NOT encourage violent behavior. In fact, we often emphasize physical confrontation as the absolute last resort. Jiu-Jitsu is very physical, so we also integrate lots of exercise and fun high energy games to ensure your child is getting lots of activity and having fun!
  8. Our environment is accepting and we have a great community! Respect for one another is one of our core values. Students are expected to show it for their instructors and their peers. Negativity is not tolerated in class, and students are encouraged to support each other. Often resulting in long lasting friendships! 
  9. We also integrate Bully Defense Programs into our curriculumThis helps teach your child how to stand up for themselves and others. They learn what peer pressure is, and how to avoid it. Instilling self-confidence!



At NSBJJ we believe in Jiu-Jitsu for everyone, we focus on the fundamentals

and origins of Jiu-Jitsu or Gracie Jiu-Jitsu first and foremost.

We offer a safe and family friendly atmosphere with no egos!

We offer Jiu-Jitsu 7 days a week with classes for Kids, Teens and Adults.

Check out what people are saying about us!

 "North Shore Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Academy is an amazing place to learn, progress, and hone your skills. At this school I have learned so much about self defense, and how and when to use it, but one of the main reasons I feel I have achieved these things and so much more is because of the wonderful instructors Angela and Danny Morera, both are very patient, wise, and relatable people. You can learn so much from both and yet sometimes it doesn't always feel like you are talking to instructors, but close and long lasting friends. Lastly, I would recommend this school to anyone who wants to learn or progress themselves, this place provides a wonderful atmosphere and everyone is supportive, and friendly." Gregory  - Student

"Best place to learn BJJ in the North Shore area, great family atmosphere, and good teammates make this school very attractive not only for adults but especially for teenagers and women. Great competition achievements, among both adults and kids. Danny Morera and his wife Angela instructs with heart. Every class and every training you feel that you accomplished something. Both our sons attend this school for the last 10 years, both get mature not only physically, but mentally. Danny and Angela have a great approach for children who have bulling problems at school. Their tremendous approach has super results. My wife and I strongly recommend this school for parents who want to see their children be strong, successful, and mature." Inga & Vadim - Parents
"I have 2 sons that attend the North Shore BJJ Academy. Danny and Angela are great, they have a way of teaching the kids about self defense situations without making it scary. They install confidence in the kids while also making class fun, with a great combination of drills and games. They have fun events like Halloween Parties and Movie Nights, and the kids all develop a great friendship."  - Lauren - Parent
"After talking about how our son struggles to make friends, gets bullied and just isn't into team sports, a co-worker and friend recommended NSBJJ. Within a couple of weeks we could already see our sons growth. He has more confidence, feels like he's part of a team and really enjoys the work out. Angela and Danny are so much more than just instructors. They truly care for these kids and provide far more than just a class." Justin & Shari - Parents
"Great school, great people with an inclusive, easier to learn method. Ive tried other schools and this is the only one that has felt like home to me. Very please with my decision to train here. If you have any hesitations, get over it and check North Shore BJJ out. You wont regret it." - Tommy - Student
"If you want to learn bjj, and you live close to this school, look no further. This place is legit. They have multiple students who compete in tournaments and frequently place. Danny is a great instructor and a master of the craft. The people there are friendly and the facility is good." - Nick - Student
"I have been so impressed with the quality of the teachers and the amazing lessons (both about Jiu Jitsu and life) that my son is gaining from these classes" - Katie - Parent
"Danny Morera instructs with great knowledge, patience, and humor. The programs vary throughout the week to meet the needs of new and experienced students. Even though Brazilian jiu-jitsu can be quite demanding, the culture at the academy is friendly, fun, and safe. I highly recommend North Shore Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Academy to anyone interested in learning about martial arts or improving his or her overall health and wellness." - Rick - Parent & Student
