Traditional Training With A Modern Appeal

We know that Jiu-Jitsu is easily applied to real world situations, and we understand why you would want to learn how to defend yourself against someone not wearing the traditional Gi. Since Luta Livre No Gi Jiu-Jitsu is practiced in more streamline clothing, you can't rely on the grips in Gi Jiu-Jitsu routines. Training without a Gi helps you focus more on the other tenets like clinches, sweeps, and footlocks.

Check out Legion Jiu Jitsu to enjoy:
  • A friendly environment focused on helping you achieve your goals
  • Intense workouts that develop real-world skills
  • The science of leverage and how you can use it to your advantage
  • Heightened self-confidence with every new achievement

History of Luta Livre

Circa 1920's Euclydes "Tatu" Hatem joined the Clube ACM in Rio de Janeiro, where he began to train and dedicate himself to the sport that he believed to be the ideal of his life, Catch Wrestling. Tatu became a professional and champion, adding victories through the ages, touring the world's platforms, and defeating everyone who came in front of him, taking down the undefeated and champions from around the world.

Luta Livre, in its early days, was largely assumed to be an art "for poor kids who could not afford a Gi." since the athletes did not wear the traditional Gi. Luta Livre focused on teaching the poor who were primarily of African descent. This was opposed to Brazilian jiu-jitsu which was thought to focus on teaching the upper class, primarily of lighter skin. The battles between the two arts were essentially class warfare. Luta Livre and BJJ were considered to be rivals. When Euclides Perreria beat Carlson Gracie, the rivalry continued for decades.

By the 1980s, Gracie Jiu-Jitsu had become very popular in Brazil and Luta Livre representatives wanted to help popularize their art by accepting challenges from Brazilian jiu-jitsu champions in Vale Tudo and Submission matches. Luta Livre continued on with many famous fights in and out of the ring.

Today, Luta Livre thrives here at Legion with your Instructors and the International Federation of Luta Livre Submission.

Get Ahead Of The Competition

If you're interested in competing, you need to take every opportunity to master your skill! Training in Luta Livre No Gi Jiu-Jitsu can open up new arenas for you in competition by honing your skills both in and out of the Gi. By being able to practice differently, you'll be able to react to any situation you face. Plus, you'll get a GREAT workout as No Gi training tends to rely heavily on slips, holds, and leverage.

We also offer No Gi competition training for those interested in proving themselves in a public arena. We offer several weekly competition training sessions to work around your busy schedule and keep you prepared for the next tournament. Many of our students compete in tournaments as large as Worlds and Pans Championships!
