Sindalu BJJ is a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Martial Arts school in Albuquerque, NM.

Operating as usual


Calling all night/swing shift workers and those of you who start work or class later in the day!!

Beginning next week Sindalu BJJ will begin offering morning classes on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday’s.

Classes begin at 8:30am and conclude at 9:30am and will follow the same curriculum as our basics classes.


Gi week!!

Armbars for all classes this week. See you there.


We would like to thank and congratulate the women who attended our self-defense classes over the last month. Keep an eye out for our next 4 classes, anticipated to begin late December/early January. The hardest part of learning self-defense or martial arts is starting to train. Great job lady Sindalus, we respect and appreciate you.

Remember we offer mauy thai and jiu-jitsu training for free for thirty days. See our website for pricing after.

Additionally, within the next few weeks we will be announcing a women’s only intro to jiu-jitsu class. This will be a fundamental (nuts and bolts) class that will last 8 weeks. As usual, we will do what we can to make this affordable to all. Details will be provided in the upcoming weeks. If there are any questions, please email us (see bio).


Finally, we made it on the marquee.
Come check us out!


No gi week!!

For kids and basics class we’ll work some standing self defense tactics and closed guard.

For advanced class this week we’ll work open guard.

See you there!

Words cannot express the deep thankfulness we have towards for their extremely generous donation to our school outreach program!!

We provide free jiu-jitsu for elementary and middle school students at some public schools in our community. These students are great kids but can’t afford their own gis.

Enter War Tribe, they went out of their way to meet the needs of our students with a donation of over 20 gis!!!!!

If you train jiu-jitsu please consider supporting their business. They make high quality gis and other grappling gear and they’re a great organization!!

Thank you War Tribe!!!!

We asked our good friend, 6th degree black belt, Ralph Martin () some questions about the benefits of jiu-jitsu.

His answers were so good we ended up asking our own instructors too! You’ll get their answers soon.


Great night of basic guard attacks, last night. Mats were filled for the kids and basics classes. Thanks for your support!


Here’s the schedule for the coming week! No Saturday class due to the NAGA tournament.

Basics: Closed guard attacks
Advanced: Open guard techniques


Life lessons taught on the mat…


Staying late after classes, working behind the scenes, and helping to hone lessons to best serve the students at Sindalu is just a fraction of what Professor Joel and Ox do to keep our school growing.

We’re thankful for these guys and their commitment.
