The Way is in Training
Hawaii's Most Award-winning BJJ Association
Students are part of The Relson Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Association - Hawaii's most award-winning Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu team since 1988. You will immediately notice that our school culture is one based on genuine friendship with each member striving toward higher levels of training and personal growth every day.
Strong Team Atmosphere
Members train within a strong team atmosphere, a house of welcoming and friendly people, where some of Hawaii's best Jiu-Jitsu athletes arrive and thrive (including high school wrestling state and national champions and coaches, experienced Judo Black Belts, celebrities, world-class competitors and the everyday person looking to grow physically and mentally). Our selective admission process ensures team cohesion and entrance to persons of integrity and character.
First-Class Teaching Staff
The RSA offers the highest quality training with some of the most experienced and stylistically diverse instructors around: featuring one of Grandmaster Relson Gracie's top Black Belts, Ronn Shiraki and RSA’s top competitors.
Optimal Jiu-Jitsu Culture
Students learn quickly and consistently in a Helio Gracie tradition-based school (modeled after the manner in which Helio Gracie intended) focusing on Jiu-Jitsu mastery, technical advancement, spiritual growth, and camaraderie.
Students gain a noticeable confidence and physical prowess that carries throughout every facet of their lives.
Consistent Striving for Excellence
New members are fully vested with all academy resources and are guided and molded toward reaching their fullest potential - they are not just a number - they are family. RSA is synonymous with excellence and dignity and will never sacrifice its integrity for meaningless evaluation methods or superficial instruction.
