6-25-2020 UPDATE: CONTINUING CLOSURE DUE TO EXECUTIVE ORDER
Team, it has been a tumultuous week.
Last week, a Federal judge ordered that gyms in Michigan could open today, the 25th. But last night at 9 PM, a different Federal judge ordered us to close again, due to a request by our governor, Gretchen Whitmer. So, training Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu remains illegal in the state of Michigan, and Guardian Jiu-Jitsu is closed again for the time being.
For those students who have expressed frustration with the indefinite closure and unknown re-opening date, please know that we share your frustration. Rest assured that Kevin and I plan to open the gym on the first available date. We are hoping for July 4 or shortly thereafter.
Thank you to all of our students for your support during this challenging time.
-- Andy & Kevin

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (also commonly known as "BJJ," "Gracie Jiu-Jitsu," or just "Jiu-Jitsu") is a martial art that focuses on grappling to establish dominant control of an opponent, and the use of submission holds to force an opponent to "tap out." BJJ is founded on the concept that a smaller, weaker person can successfully defend themselves against a bigger, stronger, heavier opponent.
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu training is a great way to get in shape while learning effective self defense. The best part: it’s a whole lot of fun!
The Guardian Jiu-Jitsu Kids Program offers Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu training for children ages 6 to 15. We welcome kids of all skill levels, from experienced Jiu-Jitsu students to complete beginners.
How do kids benefit when they train Jiu-Jitsu? Besides learning self defense techniques, kids who train Jiu-Jitsu develop physical attributes, including balance, coordination and motor skills. Jiu-Jitsu also helps children develop confidence, discipline, and other virtues which translate “off the mat” in others areas of life.
The Guardian Kickboxing Program offers training for teens and adult men and women, ages 16 and up.
We welcome students of all skill levels, from experienced kickboxers, to complete beginners.
Our kickboxing program stresses fundamentals, and is an excellent complement to Jiu-Jitsu training. Plus, it's a fun and intense workout!
Get fit... develop confidence... and unleash your inner strength!
Our Women's Martial Arts Program offers classes in both Jiu-Jitsu as well as kickboxing.
These women's martial arts classes offer a great workout, and are appropriate for all skill levels. Many of our students begin with little to no experience, so whether you're an advanced student, or a complete beginner, you can jump right in.
