Making Star Valley Strong Since 2020

Peak Fitness Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu was established in November 2020 to introduce the art of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu to Star Valley. We are located at Peak Fitness in Afton, WY, and are currently the only martial arts academy in Star Valley.

Peak Fitness Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a family-friendly martial arts academy that focuses on team, community, and character. We teach both self-defense and Brazilian Jiu-jitsu based on the Gracie family art and Sport Brazilian Jiu-jitsu. We learn Jiu-jitsu to help strengthen our bodies, mind, and spirit and teach anti-bullying.

We aim to teach self-defense, honor, respect, teamwork, and self-discipline. There are many benefits to Brazilian Jiu-jitsu (BJJ) that fall outside of self-defense and are applicable in everyday life. Some of these benefits include learning how to overcome obstacles, finding solutions to challenges, doing hard things, staying calm under pressure, and being comfortable with the uncomfortable. We at Peak Fitness Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu aim to teach our students these important lessons and because we feel these lessons are so important, we charge a fraction of the costs of other BJJ academies.

We offer kids and adult classes and provide a family and friendly environment so that parents may feel secure that their kids are in safe hands. Couples can also visit and learn martial arts and indulge themselves in other fitness programs.

We offer traditional Gi and No Gi classes that allow people to learn and practice techniques using a BJJ Gi. No-Gi BJJ is also known as submission wrestling. Which uses different techniques of holding and helps you learn several strategies in self-defense.

We are affiliated with Excel Jiu-jitsu in San Diego, CA, under Professor Michio Grubbs. Our BJJ lineage is through Chris Hauter, one of the first 12 Americans to receive their BJJ Black Belt.


About our Instructors

Professor Eric

Professor Eric is a Brazilian Jiu-jitsu Black belt under Professor Michio Grubbs and has been practicing Brazilian Jiu-jitsu for 20 years and teaching for 12 years.
Professor Eric started martial arts when he was 15 years old after he was accidentally caught in the middle of a gang fight. Realizing he needed to learn how to defend himself, Professor Eric joined the closest martial arts academy. Here, I learned Kempo Karate and then shortly switched to studying Choy Lay Fut Kung Fu. Professor Eric trained in Choy Lay Fut until he left on his mission. Before he left on his mission, Eric was introduced to Brazilian Jiu-jitsu when Royce Gracie won the Ultimate Fighting Championship. Seeing BJJ for the first time piqued my interest, Professor Eric.

When Professor Eric returned from his mission, he picked back up his training in Chop Lay Fut for another two years, earning his brown belt. During this time, a friend introduced Eric to Michio Grubbs, who practiced and taught Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Eric quickly fell in love with BJJ and realized how practical and effective it was, and has been training in BJJ ever since. Professor Eric has also trained in boxing and Muay Thai Kickboxing.

Coach Reegin

Coach Reegin have been practicing Brazilian Jiu-jitsu for five years. He helps teach the kids classes. Coach Reegin also wrestles in school and has won multiple gold medals in BJJ tournaments.
