LEVEL UP BRAZILIAN JIU JITSU
After 35 years of teaching, training, and competing around the world, Professor Erik Klinger the founder of Level Up Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, had formed a specific vision of the way he thought martial arts should be taught and delivered to students and the public in an authentic, safe and effective manner. Through his vision, Level Up Brazilian Jiu Jitsu was born. The belief and movement itself can be described in the Level Up core statement of purpose, “Through great teaching and great service, we can see great change in the world.” This embodies the true goals of the Level Up philosophy and vision to have world class teaching and service in every corner of the world. Level Up offers classes for children and adults of all ages and we strive to deliver a service and class unparalleled to students, parents, and families looking to better themselves, their community and in fact, the world.
Level Up Brazilian Jiu Jitsu’s first location in the U.S. is open today in West Los Angeles, California on Santa Monica Blvd., with head instructor and world Jiu Jitsu champion, Professor Talita Nogueira providing traditional Brazilian Jiu Jitsu classes for children as young as 2 years old and adults as old or young as you can imagine. Classes are divided by age and experience level, and are taught based on a standard curriculum developed and perfected to bring an appropriate experience to each student based on their martial arts experience, level, age, and ability. A second location for Jiu Jitsu and martial arts in Studio City was opened in 2017 and is growing in the area of Toluca Lake, Sherman Oaks, Hollywood Hills, and Studio City on Ventura Blvd. A third location is now opened in Woodland Hills providing high quality Brazilian Jiu Jitsu to the Encino, Tarzana, Canoga Park, Woodland Hills and the San Fernando valley area. Level Up Culver City Jiu Jitsu recently opened as well and is serving the public in the Culver City area, Venice, Playa Vista, and Playa Del Rey Jiu Jitsu enthusiasts also enjoy this school's location. Level Up has grown to six more locations internationally, in Brazil and Guatemala where children and adults enjoy the Level Up philosophy and training methods.

My life changed forever and for the better when I started training in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu with professor Erik Klinger. His approach is inspiring, fun, and engaging. I learn so much with professor Erik, and not just about Jiu Jitsu....about life & character…Talia Paul
