Self Defense & Competition BJJ

Princeton Brazilian Jiu Jitsu provides expert instruction in the Princeton, New Jersey area in both gi and no gi grappling. Taught by two renowned instructors, Arthur Keintz and Emily Kwok, students can expect classes that will include a dynamic warm up, technique and live sparring. This program will expose the student to both the self defense and competitive aspects of the sport.

Adult Classes

Our Adult Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu class is a comprehensive program designed to accommodate absolute beginners through advanced practitioners. When you enroll at Princeton BJJ, you will first gain confidence while learning a solid foundation of self defense, followed by more sport-based jiu jitsu. Drilling and live training are also an important part of our curriculum. To begin our gi and no gi classes, expect to be taken through a dynamic warm up, take down, and ground techniques in every session. Princeton BJJ’s fun-yet-focused atmosphere is suitable for recreational and competitive players alike.

Youth BJJ

Our Tiny Titans and Jr. Champs programs will teach your child valuable skills and coping mechanisms, both on and off the mat. Through both singular and partner work, your child will learn self awareness, respect and trust, perseverance, and develop a healthy competitive mindset. Technique, drills, live training, and game play are a part of each class, and — most importantly — our time together will be FUN!

Hybrid Kickboxing

An exciting foray into the most effective striking martial arts. Styles included in the curriculum are traditional Muay Thai, Dutch Kickboxing, Western Boxing, American Kickboxing as well as several other traditional martial arts. Students can expect a proper warm up, technical instruction, partner drilling, and controlled live application.

Them: “Where do you come from?”
Me: “Canada”
Them: “No, like where do you really come from?”
Me: “Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA”
Them: “No, like I mean, where are your parents from?”
My appearances have always led people to point out that my ancestry is not western, though I may have felt culturally more western than East Asian due to my immigrant experience. Do you have an immigrant experience that you’re aware of? Articulating our individual journey is much more than acknowledging where you are today, it might ask you who you are and how this came to be your home - or not. My most recent piece of writing was for @astoldbywomen on immigrant dreams.

What an awesome day our team spent with @hartbjjandmma and @mainlineunitedbjj competing against each other at a friendly tournament experience that we collectively organized. Kids, adults and masters divisions were well represented and we are so proud of everyone who stepped up to improve their skills. Thank you to everyone who competed and came out to support. On a day like today you could truly see what an incredible team of staff, instructors and students we have! Providing safe, fun and fair environments for our students to challenge themselves is a lot of work, work that couldn’t be done without a lot of people who care. Big thanks to @djeet_yet for being tournament coordinator extraordinaire!! I can’t believe I can say that all this work is worthwhile when you have partners in crime like her. Really proud of all our students and my babies for battling their hearts out. Thanks for capturing the day @jjsmithphoto  #hartbjj #hartbjjandmma #pbjj #princetonbjj #bjjcompetition #bjjfamily #bjjforeveryone #bjjkids #teamwork #martialarts #goodtimes #proudmom #proudcoach #brazilianjiujtsu #resilience #buildingcharacter #dontgiveup #champion

Over the last 9 years @artkeintz and I have invested our energy into building a school that values community, integrity and quality. Today we were thrilled to share our mats with the many students, staff and instructors who have chosen to develop their BJJ with these same values in mind. We had the honor of awarding 3 new black belts to outstanding individuals who’ve shown us all what commitment to the art and passionate self care really means, @humphrej2000, @pan_dol_fi_ni_1 and @fink.cynthia could not be better representatives for our team and greater community. Congratulations to all the students who leveled up to blue, purple and brown belt today, thank you for choosing to be part of what we do. And a special shout out to @jhannan86 who was named the exemplary student award recipient this year. This is an award that is given to a student to recognize the many additional types of support and care needed to cultivate the right culture in a school. Thank you to everyone who helps make our school what it is.
