Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a martial art that focuses more on technique and physics than size and speed, making it a perfect art for any person, any body shape, and any level of fitness. 
 
      
 
Our instructor, Michael Donvito, is a 2nd Degree Black Belt under the world reknown Carlos Machado.  He has been studying the art of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu for more than 10 years and his gift of teaching and knowledge has given him the privilege to represent Carlos Machado as his representative for two states, North Carolina and Florida.  His ability to pass on knowledge, and develop technical BJJ practitioners of any size, weight, gender, or age has made him a well recognized and sought after coach.  He teaches most classes at Empyreal for BJJ and Submission Grappling, and welcomes anyone willing to learn.  So, whether you are a beginner, experienced BJJ practitioner, a competitor, athlete, or hobbyist Empyreal Martial Arts is the place to train to learn the addicting art of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.

SUBMISSION GRAPPLING
 
Submission Grappling, or No-Gi, classes are available to round out your knowledge base and confidence in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Submission Grappling classes focus on using BJJ technique without relying on handholds on collars and sleeves—making your BJJ game more diverse and enhancing your ability to handle different situations.
 
 
Submission Grappling classes can be taken independently of our other programs, or you can incorporate it with your Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu for maximum benefit. 
 
 

 
 
Kobushi Sessen-Jutsu is an art developed for the student who is interested in true personal protective skills.  This martial art originates from years of experience training the military's most elite soldiers in close combat and refined through countless real world situations.  This "martial art" was developed with no sport applications.  All techniques within the system are designed to cause permanent structural damage to the opponent with many techniques causing maiming or death.  This class is for only the most serious of practitioners.  Those who are looking for more than just the "right" way of handling situations but what is real.
 
 
 
 
 
 
The Kids Program at Empyreal Martial Arts takes a two-fold approach to developing skills for children: Martial Arts and Personal Development. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is the art focused upon and is an excellent martial art for children all around, focusing on technique rather than size, encouraging self-defense without anger. Because Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu uses the entire body to perform techniques, children build valuable motor skills and are confident in their ability. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu builds balance, coordination, and good conditioning.


We also put an emphasis on the personal development of our children—on the mat and off. We encourage the values of honesty, integrity, and good citizenship while focusing on self-confidence, goal setting and achievement, and using good judgment.
