We offer world-class level Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu instruction for individuals, families, and Law Enforcement officials of The San Fernando Valley and is a reference for fitness, character development, self-defense, martial art, and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu for the communities of Woodland Hills, Calabasas, West Hills and Canoga Park.

The ZR TEAM WOODLAND HILLS classes are aligned with the ZR TEAM Program Structure developed by Master Ze Radiola to meet specific learning needs from people with different ages, gender, and levels. Our clean, friendly, and progress oriented environment allows the students to have a challenging, inspirational, and warm learning and training experience that always make them feel like coming back.

What’s ZR TEAM

The benefits of ZR TEAM Brazilian Jiu Jitsu are far reaching and will touch every aspect of your life. At ZR TEAM, our students become leaders. ZR TEAM nurtures your independent thinking, supports your fighting spirit, and helps you achieve your personal BJJ goals.

Through ZR BJJ, you will begin to understand yourself, on and off the mats, in ways you never imagined. You will test your limits and become the best you can be. ZR respects that each student has their own goals and we support you in reaching them. The more you train, the better you will become and the more completely you will reach your true potential in life.

ZR BJJ is for anyone who wants to learn how to defend him or herself in combat. What most people don’t know, is that ZR BJJ will also allow you to apply those same principles to fighting the daily battles of life, like weight loss, stress, relationship issues, and self-confidence. You will learn how to think through problems more constructively than before, on and off the mats.

At ZR, you are a part of an extended family. You will join a team that will support you in your quest for self-improvement. Training the techniques and participating in live training sessions, with your partners and coaches, will give you an arsenal of weapons at your disposal whenever you should need them. The more you train, the more you will arm yourself with knowledge and skills to fight all your battles in life like a black belt.
