Seattle Jiu-Jitsu Academy started with an idea between training partners. It was an idea to create a unique Jiu-Jitsu culture that would promote the martial arts life style, instill critical core values in others, and share our passion with the Seattle community. We set out to create a unique space that is safe, clean, and fun for all types of individuals and skill sets. Whether you are training for fun, fitness, or competition we have something for you.
Seattle Jiu-Jitsu Academy is proudly run by Professor David Stegman who has over 33 years experience training martial arts and the last 24 years focused on Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. David’s passion for martial arts and Jiu-Jitsu shine through in his teaching and ability to inspire those around him. David has been teaching Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu in the Seattle area for over 10 years and has coached high level competitors in the World Masters (gold medalists), PAN AM Champions (gold medalist), along with many other local Jiu-Jitsu competitions in the Pacific North West.
We proudly offer classes and programs from beginners to advanced classes, competition training, private one-on-one classes, self-defense, and of course A LOT of open mat time to put your skills to the test!
