Why Adjust?

The idea of fine-tuning techniques, adapting to different situations, and making necessary adjustments during training and competitions is a pervasive theme that reflects the dynamic nature of Jiu-Jitsu. Practitioners constantly refine their skills and strategies to overcome new challenges. The name Adjust promotes improvement and progress, which aligns with the achievement of life ambitions and is a core value of our academy.

Core Values
Safety above everything. At Adjust, we realize the Jiu-Jitsu has inherent risk, and we look for opportunities to mitigate unnecessary threats to a students ongoing development.
Respect and safety go hand in hand. At Adjust, we emphasize respect for the art as well as the diversity and boundaries of instructors and members alike.
We promote maintaining an environment that encourages personal development and achievement of goals within Jiu-Jitsu and your personal life.

What people are saying about us

Jay Godfrey
Student Since 2023

Top notch BJJ instruction. Everything is clearly explained and demonstrated. As a new practitioner to the gentle art, I was made to feel welcome and from his enthusiasm; you can tell Professor Brandon loves the art and the opportunity to teach it to others. Even when struggling, you’re never made to feel like a burden.  I’ve been to other schools but never felt a sense of closeness or kindness anywhere else. Once you walk through the front door: you’re home.

Mark Pellon

Had a great experience at Adjust Jiu Jitsu Academy. Professor Brandon is highly knowledgeable and an excellent communicator! I know that this school is going to thrive.

Matthew Iverson
Student Since 2023

I have been Professor Brandon’s student for over a year, and the knowledge I have gained is immense. His ability to break down every move into a more detailed but easily understood movement has allowed me to propel myself in this art. I enjoy the atmosphere in his classes while enforcing the fundamentals to allow me to grow as a practitioner. Professor Brandon’s Brazilian Jiu-Jistu encourages a community of people who are patient, uplifting, understanding, and solid in the fundamentals. This culture has brought me back repeatedly. The teamwork, culture, and independent focus on the craft of Brazilian jiu-jitsu have brought me out of a dark place to grow more than physically. Overall, I have grown mentally and emotionally to control what I can and not worry as much about what I cannot. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu helps me approach daily problems more patiently since all problems can be overcome with many different angles of approach, and Professor Brandon teaches this. Adjust is the way to go.
