A Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Studio Will Open Near the Jefferson Street Stop

Time for those self-defense classes, Bushwick.

Evan Haddad


A Brazilian jiu-jitsu studio is coming to Bushwick.

Roots Athletic, mixed-martial arts studio based in Philadelphia, plans to open up a branch on the corner of Troutman Street and Wyckoff Avenue in a building shared by Artichoke Pizza, according to M Properties Group, which announced the deal on Feb. 16.

The gym at 440 Troutman St. will offer classes in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu for kids and adults, submission grabbling, and Thai boxing in a one-room studio off the Jefferson Street stop. Currently, the exercise options in the area are limited to three yoga studios and a soon-to-be rock climbing gym. Unfortunately, there was no mention of an opening date in the announcement, and a Roots representative was not available for comment at the time of this article. But we'll be updating this article as we learn more.

With a focus on grappling and ground fighting, Brazilian jiu-jitsu is considered one of the safest martial arts. This could be the perfect opportunity to take classes in self-defense — and follow it up with an Artichoke slice.
