BIZNOTE: Grand ‘reopening’ celebration for Elite Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu next Sunday


Elite Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu of Seattle invites you to its Grand Reopening next Sunday (May 22nd). This is the big gym at 5050 Delridge Way SW, known previously as Straight Blast Gym of Seattle (WSB sponsor). From the announcement: “Recent events have allowed the two female owners of BJJ gyms to come together and grow our communities and provide a number of martial-arts programs such as Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Muay Thai, along with Strength and Conditioning classes for both youth and adults! We’d like to invite the community to our event and check out the mini clinics that will be held. There will be a gathering of people of all skill levels and interests.”


That photo is from this past Sunday, when they had a staff meeting with other Elite groups from around the metro area. Next up before the Sunday event, they’ll be doing renovations and rebranding this Wednesday through Friday, “which will include transformation of both the inside and outside facilities!” And then on Sunday, set for 1-4 pm, here’s what you can enjoy:

Join us in celebrating a new chapter as we open our doors and start our journey as a part of the Elite team.

Elite Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu offers year-round programs for the entire family for kids and adults of all ages and skill levels, in a fun and safe environment.

    I didn’t realize we had a martial arts gym in WSeattle. What’s the youngest age they teach? My five-yr-old has been dying to get into “wrestling.”

      In the interest of competition, I feel obligated to point out that there’s another martial arts gym in the area: SIMA at Genesee & Fauntleroy. They have classes for kids aged 4-10. You should check out both and see which is a better fit for your child.

        They also have classes for ages 11-14.

      Hi Jess, we do have classes starting as young as 3. Our process is to go through a consultation, which includes a free private lesson to make sure your kiddo is comfortable and has a chance to acclimate before they jump into a full class! Feel free to contact us at 206.420.1834 or
