About The Base Jiu-Jitsu of Pocatello

At The Base Jiu-Jitsu of Pocatello, we seek excellence in every aspect of Jiu-Jitsu. From the space, the vibe, the technique, and to the people we train with. There is a common and deep rooted sentiment: Excellence.

It's not just our Jiu-Jitsu, not just our self-defense training. It's not just the beautiful facility nor people in it alone that make us excellent. We work hard to ensure we have the most trusted and thoughtful environment! That way you can focus on your training and nothing else. Our extensive knowledge in both tournament and self-defense aspects of Jiu-Jitsu gives us a unique ability to connect with our students and instill concepts in their game plans. This translates to a faster progression and more complete knowledge of the greater picture that is Jiu-Jitsu. We believe the concept based approach to self-defense isĀ  paramount to one's safety and ultimate success in Jiu-Jitsu and day to day life.

Kids/Teens Program

You've heard the old adage "It takes a village to raise a child". This sentiment has never been more true in the case of Jiu-Jitsu and we feel like we are uniquely qualified to help. As parents ourselves we understand the importance of the people participating in class. Like you, we see our kids not only as the future of our world, but as the reason we do all we do. For this reason, we invest more then just Jiu-Jitsu into our classes. We strive to lift your athlete to a new level, one they previously may not have thought possible through emotional, physical, and mental stimulus. Through Jiu-Jitsu your athlete will learn respect for their training partners, professors, siblings, parents, and goals they have made and expectations of them. Accountability is a driving ideology. We simply do more.

Adults Program

We love all things grappling. From Jiu-Jitsu to Judo and wrestling, we have something for everyone. With self-defense being the primary focus of our fundamentals program, you will quickly learn to keep yourself safe from a variety of attacks and positions while simultaneously learning to conserve energy and getting in great shape! Staying safe and being consistent is the name of the game. With our advanced curriculum you will have the opportunity to "test fit" the most modern techniques and strategies. These strategies are broken down into manageable segments, so you can not only complete the movements, but truly understand their functions and implement them. Sparring is a heavy staple for us, and we believe you cannot learn proper timing and execution without it. With safety in mind and a student's mindset, we never get too old to learn new things!
