Soma Academy is a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu academy under the instruction of 3rd Degree Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Black Belt Professor Matt Strack, who received his black belt from 8th degree Master Pedro Sauer in 2006.
The mission of the academy is to provide quality instruction to our students through effective, real world self-defense techniques that are not based on size, strength, athletic ability, or time limits.
The word 'Soma' comes from Greek sōma ‘body’ and is used in our name because Jiu-Jitsu is not only known as one of the most effective forms of martial arts, but is also one of the earliest forms of exercise or physical fitness in existence, providing for a complete workout of the body and mind.
Our Jiu-Jitsu program is structured for all levels of experience ages 13-up. Each class focuses on practical self-defense techniques that are not based on time, weight, age, or athletic ability. It doesn't matter if you haven't worked out in many years, or you are a current student of Jiu-Jitsu, our program is structured in such a way that each individual, no matter their background, will see improvements almost immediately.
Our Youth Jiu-Jitsu program is structured for kids ages 6-13. This program specifically focuses on, building your child's self confidence, discipline, and character development by teaching them verbal skills, and reality tested self-defense techniques that have been proven to give your child the tools necessary to deal with bullying and many other stressful situations that they will encounter in life.
