Since 2014, we have been one of the West Valley's leading Brazilian Jiu Jitsu & Catch Wrestling facilities, proudly offering the Downtown Glendale area unsurpassed quality. We strive to take our respected Grappling Arts from their historic roots as dominant and powerful stand alone submission fighting systems into a more modern and devastating Hybrid Grappling format. We do this by allowing the philosophies and concepts of BJJ & Catch Wrestling to cross over and blend into one another. This has enabled Black Flag to create a highly effective ground combat system that has been proven successful in multiple Combat Sports, including Mixed Martial Arts, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, No Gi, Sub Only competitions, Catch Wrestling, Freestyle Wrestling and other forms of Grappling and Martial Arts. 


The benefits of regular training reach far beyond the walls of our Academy. Black Flag's various programs can give you the tools to stay present and focused while standing in the eye of the storm. It is this self-awareness that allows you to make the best decisions in stressful situations, and to defend yourself when needed. Tasks such as problem solving, multi tasking, and even managing one's own mind become much easier to do with time, and regular participation in our scheduled classes. 

Black Flag takes less traditional and more laid back approach to operating as a Martial Arts facility. While we do take our training very seriously, the atmosphere is always welcoming and relaxed. All of the coaches are very approachable and open to answering any questions that anyone may have. Generally speaking, the members themselves are very friendly and helpful to new and experienced alike. Joking and laughter often accompany the instruction given in each class, while still delivering an on a very detailed but easy to follow program. We have a "little-big" team feel, that is likened more to family. Our members come from all walks of life, and share a common goal and passion for training. Our doors are always open to anyone with an interest and learning Catch Wrestling, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, or Mixed Martial Arts.
