About Us:

FX Self-Defense helps individuals of all ages achieve their goals in training and life. We cultivate a positive environment that nurtures learning and growth. Our students can feel safe and comfortable while receiving top-quality, realistic self defense training. The techniques and skills you acquire during Jiu-Jitsu training translate into real-world examples.

Our History:

Owner Rocky Frizzell started training Judo at age 16 and now has years of training experience in many systems of defensive tactics and self defense. Rocky opened the school in 2018 offering Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and Israeli Krav Maga after the local community made many requests for a gym. What started as a small group of martial artists transitioned into a larger self defense gym over time. Today, our team strives to provide top-quality realistic training to help people meet the variety of goals they have. We succeed when our students succeed!
