Profectus Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu - Brentwood, Tennessee

Progress Thru Refinement


Welcome to Profectus Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. We are open seven days a week and offer various levels of instruction for both kids and adults. Please take a moment to review a description of our programs and check out our class schedules. We look forward to seeing you on the mats!


Jiu-Jitsu, in Japanese, means "gentle art." It is a form of martial art derived from judo that incorporates grappling and wrestling, and focuses on the effective use of leverage and technique.

Kids Program

Our kids program is open to children ages 3 and up and is divided into Little Gorillas and Big Gorillas. Classes are designed to help our students develop balance, reflex, flexibility, and coordination. Students also learn self-esteem, discipline, and compassion. Rather than having to rely on their size or strength, our students learn to use leverage and technique to subdue their opponents. Classes are taught in a positive and fun environment to encourage students to enjoy learning the art, as well as the sport, of Jiu-Jitsu.

Parents Night Out

Join us for our monthly Parents Night Out! Parents are invited to drop off their kids in a safe and fun environment while they run errands or simply enjoy some time off. We are conveniently located in Cool Springs near Costco and the mall.

Adult Program

Our adult program is open to students of all experience levels and interests. Our classes range from beginner to advanced, offering students the option to train according to their own personal goals. Whether it's to learn self-defense skills, lead a healthier lifestyle, hone technical skills, or compete at the world level, our adult program is designed to help students achieve their goals at their desired pace. Read about our classes below.


Goals: to build a strong foundation; fitness

Our beginner class is carefully designed to introduce newcomers to Jiu-Jitsu in the most efficient way possible. Students learn the movement drills, positions, and techniques that make Jiu-Jitsu the most effective martial art. While the class is designed for beginning students, it's also perfect for experienced students looking to brush up on the basics.


Goal: to build strong Blue Belt skills

Our fundamental class is designed for those who have completed the beginner class and are ready to deepen their Jiu-Jitsu journey.

The class is faster paced and more challenging than the beginner class. Students begin to learn the more modern techniques of Jiu-Jitsu. Through live training, students learn to develop their game, as well as their athletic skills and attributes.


Goal: to build strong Purple Belt skills

Our intermediate class is open to all color belts. It is the foundation of our very successful competition team. Students learn the techniques they need to become a successful practitioner, including the most cutting edge techniques seen in the highest level competitions such as the IBJJF World Championship and ADCC.


Goal: to build real Black Belt skills

Our advance class is open to purple belts and up, as well as those invited by a professor. This class is designed to help students develop the strategies and understanding to be a black belt. Class structure varies in order to encourage students to embrace change and keep an open mind, two things imperative to being a black belt.
