Choke Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu was established in 2004. We are the most traditional BJJ organization in Denmark and the only group that is directly connected to the Gracie Family in Brazil and in the United States. In fact, when the Gracies come to Scandinavia they usually train and teach at our schools.
We have two schools – Copenhagen & Århus – and over 250 members.
Our founder and head instructor is Professor Joao Pedro Santos, who is a second degree black belt under 7th degree Carlson Gracie disciple Sergio “Bolao” Souza.
The name Choke is short, strong and relates directly to Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. According to Grand Master Helio Gracie, it is also the most powerful move in Jiu-Jitsu . It was suggested by Morten Pedersen, one of our first students.
Our logo is evidently based on the traditional Gracie Academy logo that’s been used in Brazil for almost a century. There are three equilateral triangles inside the circle. They represent balance and connection to our roots.
