Sumter Grappling Academy

Sumter Grappling Academy

Keishidojo Martial Arts Unleashed is your home for Grappling.  We are the only martial arts school in Sumter that offers Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu with a certified RCJ Machado Black Belt, a 5th Degree Martial Arts Unlimited Association All-Japan Submission Fighting Black Belt, a 3rd Degree Submission Arts Wrestling Black Belt, a Pankration 1st Degree Black Belt and a Combat Submission Wrestling Coach Level One under Sensei Erik Paulson. 

We offer the most diverse grappling program in Sumter with both gi and no-gi classes.  Besides offing such a diverse grappling program, we also provide a full curriculum for progression in either Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu or Submission Wrestling.  Check out the Keishidojo App for the full curriculum anytime.

If you have a crazy schedule, we understand.  We have classes as early as 6 am on Mondays and Wednesdays, afternoon classes at 11 am on Tuesdays and Thursdays and of course evening classes.  Mondays and Wednesdays at 6:30 pm (no-gi) and Tuesdays and Thursdays at 7:30 pm.  When you join the Keishidojo Crew you are welcome to attend any or all of these different classes, and if you need to switch from one time to another, it's not a problem.  

To help everyone in their grappling journey, we have created a Sumter Grappling Academy YouTube Channel with weekly free videos that will work alongside your in-class training.  Feel free to check out and subscribe to our channel right here.  Please also let us know what you may want to see in the future, and we will do our best to accommodate. Finally, all Keishidojo members are encouraged to join the Martial Arts Unlimited Association ( for the complete online library of the curriculum.  If you need any help during testing, this is a priceless resource to help out.
