What is Brazilian Jiu Jitsu?

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a martial art and combat sport system that focuses on self defense, grappling and especially ground fighting.  BJJ promotes the concept that a smaller, weaker person can successfully defend themselves or another against a bigger, stronger, heavier assailant by using proper technique, leverage, and most notably, taking the fight to the ground, and then applying joint locks and chokeholds to defeat the opponent.  BJJ is incredibly effective in self defence conditions. It allows the student to take control and most importantly finish the fight without hurting the other person. The technique is so effective that the opponent will either give up or be incapacitated.




We provide the highest level Jiu Jitsu instruction and training possible to every student. We are committed to offering innovative Jiu Jitsu programs tailored to the needs, goals and experience level of each student. With classes for both kids and adults, beginners and seasoned competitors, we offer something for everyone. Inspire Brazilian Jiu Jitsu has created an environment where everyone can feel comfortable and have fun.

Better BJJ, Better You!

Our focus is to help people become better versions of themselves through the Jiu Jitsu lifestyle. BJJ classes help to build our members confidence, coordination, mobility, endurance and technical skill. All in a fun, friendly and supportive environment.  


Whether you are looking for self defense, fitness, community, new skills, anti- bullying technique, competition or just a fun activity to practice with friends, Jiu Jitsu is for you.  The benefits of BJJ are many. It provides participants with improved mobility. It improves core strength and power. Many participants report improved flexibility, stability, and coordination. It provides stress relief and even lowers blood pressure levels.

We are an official Lovato Jiu Jitsu Affiliate!



The Inspire Brazilian Jiu Jitsu  brand was created by Head Instructor Thomas Barr in 2017. After years teaching at Dark Horse Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Thomas began giving private lessons to his students.  Soon classes and privates taught by Thomas were in high demand. Then in 2016 Thomas decided it was time to open his own academy. Students seemed to really connect with his teaching style. He has taken time to break down, and learn from some of the most successful competitors in the world. Thomas has developed a system of teaching high level technique and concepts that is extremely effective for all of his students.
