We pride ourselves on a laid back philosophy; simply coming out and having a good time with everyone.

Facebook Page: Bonsai Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (Aviano)
The team is an affiliate under Bonsai/Figo Guam where our head instructor, Ruben Rivas, trained prior to arriving at Aviano Air Base. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a martial art which focuses on grappling and ground fighting. Students learn how to defend themselves against attackers with the use of joint locks and chokeholds. Knowing you have the ability to protect yourselves and your family gives students a level of self-confidence that translates into other aspects of their lives (work, family) and allows to them to continually improve in all aspects of their lives.
There are 5 belts in the promotion system for Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, which are in order, White, Blue, Purple, Brown, and Black. Each belt has five different levels (stripes) to obtain before moving up to the next belt.
If you have any further questions regarding the classes please let us know. Thank you.

Description: The goal of this group is to create an athletic and aggressive roller derby team. Through roller derby, we strive to improve each member's athletic ability, self-discipline and foster camaraderie in the community. Any individual (ages 18+) can participate. Skating experience is a plus, but not a limiting factor (we will teach you how to skate). Finally, for those people that want to be part of the team and don't want to skate we have non-skating official (NSO) positions. Individuals that support the team by keeping score, managing penalties and performing referee duties during the bouts. Check us out on Facebook at Aviano Roller Derby
