Where is The Stronghold located?
We currently serve San Diego at 3 locations, Point Loma, Eastlake and Rancho Bernardo.

What do you offer?

What is Jiu Jitsu?
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a martial art that focuses on ground fighting- incorporating a system of joint locks, choke holds, sweeps, and positional dominance in order to control an opponent and force him or her to submit. The Stronghold offers a comprehensive BJJ program for beginners and advanced practitioners alike. Whether you are interested in preparing for national tournaments or simply looking for a fun and exciting hobby, our program will equip you with the tools you need to meet your goals. We offer a friendly and open atmosphere, so please drop by and check us out!

I have never trained in a Martial Art, would The Stronghold be a good fit for me?
The Stronghold is a great place for beginners who are interested in Jiu Jitsu. Prior experience is not necessary.

What are your recommended ages for your Kids Jiu Jitsu Program?
We currently offer classes for Toddlers (Ages 3-4), Kids from Ages 5-12, and 13 and up. Depending on their size, Kids 12 and up may be eligible to participate with the Adult class.

What makes The Stronghold different from other schools?
At The Stronghold, we pride ourselves in providing high quality instruction and fostering community within our schools. While some schools may treat you like a number who pays monthly dues, we treat you like family. We encourage all of our members to participate in our community events, which occur often. We don’t just hang out in the gym, but hang out as a family outside as well. BBQ’s at the Beach, Baseball Games, Rock Climbing Days, the list goes on. Some may take breaks from training, but they will also be apart of The Stronghold Family and are welcome to all of our events and functions.

What equipment do I need prior to training at The Stronghold?
For Jiu Jitsu, we offer both gi (kimono) and no-gi classes. You can purchase a gi through us if you do not have one already. For no-gi classes, a rashguard and boardshorts are recommended. If you are coming in to try out a few classes and do not have a gi, rashguard or boardshorts, a shirt and workout shorts are perfectly fine.

Who teaches your Jiu Jitsu Classes?
Our head Jiu Jitsu instructor is Michael Cusi. He received his Black Belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu from Roy Harris in August 2010. He is currently continuing his training with Rubens “Cobrinha” Charles.

Do you offer Free Trials?
Yes! We offer a Free Week Trials for Jiu Jitsu.

  1. I just wanted info/ rates on both jiu jitsu and crossfit, and if there is a monthly price for both together (one day jiu jitsu, two days crossfit- a week) Also, I see the schedule for crossfit, but not jiu jitsu.
    I am a 42 year old male, I live in OB and I’m looking for a program to get back in shape. I also have a wife and an 8 year old boy that might be interested as well. Thanks for the info!!
