Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a system that focuses on grappling, or ground fighting. The art of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu was founded from Japanese Judo in the early 20th century when a visiting Japanese dignitary taught the art of Judo to the Gracie family in Brazil. It was from these teachings that the art of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu eventually emerged.
In January of 2011 Jeremy returned to South Carolina after attaining his black belt in Brazil and began pursuing his ultimate dream of opening his own Brazilian Jiu Jitsu academy. Great Grappling Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is the product of over 20 years of dedicated martial arts training. Opened in May 2011, GGBJJ has experienced great success and growth, with students from Tega Cay, Fort Mill, Rock Hill, Charlotte, and well beyond. We also host several international athletes per year, as Great Grappling is quickly becoming known as one of the top spots to train BJJ on the east coast. We enjoy a 4,100 square foot facility with over 2,000 square feet of mat space, his and hers locker room facilities, a shower, children’s playroom, and fully stocked pro-shop. Jeremy currently resides in Fort Mill, South Carolina, with his wife Megan, and looks forward to welcoming two little grapplers to the family this summer as they’re expecting twins. It is his goal to spread the knowledge that he has acquired in his lifetime using sound teaching principles. He is truly an advocate for the sport!
