Established in 1997, South Bay Jiu Jitsu has become one of the top recommended Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu schools in America.  Students fly in from all over the country specifically to learn from Bob Bass.


Owner and Head Instructor, Bob Bass is one of the 1st American students of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, having studied under both the Machado’s and Gracie’s during it’s time of introduction back in 1988. In 1995, Bob Bass became the 1st American Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Black Belt under legendary World Champion Rigan Machado! Bob is now a 5th Degree Black Belt.

Our Head MMA Instructor currently fights for the UFC! Instructors here have professional certification in Freestyle Submission Wrestling, Combat Submission Wrestling, Jeet Kune Do (Bruce Lee Style), Muay Thai, Western Boxing, Olympic Style Boxing, and Judo.
