Who Else Wants to Learn Jiu Jitsu but Doesn’t Know Where to 



Of course, you could roll up to an academy near you and jump right in, but let’s face it, that’s kind of intimidating. And not every academy will have exactly what you’re looking for. 


If you’re a beginner or have taken a long break from training, the last thing you want to do is find yourself stranded on the mats, caught like a deer in headlights, in the middle of a competition level class. 


And if you’re looking for basic self-defense and don’t want to devote a portion of your finances towards a monthly gym membership, signing up at all might not feel worthwhile.


You don’t have to lock into a monthly membership to get good training!


Peter Iacavazzi, a black belt in jiu jitsu and judo and multi-time world champion, actually specializes in developing programs designed to achieve results in set timeframes.


During the past 20+ years, he’s trained a wide variety of students. Everything from beginner students at Atos HQ (one of the top jiu jitsu academies in the world), to military personnel employed at places such as West Point Military Academy and the Pentagon. 


You can move through an online course at your own pace!


The beauty of an online course, like Peter’s Welcome to Jiu Jitsu - A Beginner’s Guide here on Jiu Jitsu X, is that it allows you to go at your own pace and come back to the content whenever you need to.


The course highlights basics such as:

  • Applying grips

  • How to stand in front of your opponent

  • How to flow movements together

  • How to keep yourself injury-free


Although these are basics, they are detailed and totally worth going over again and again and again. In fact, that is encouraged


But we understand that asking your instructor to repeat themselves in a class with 20+ other students can make you feel self-conscious. Are you not picking things up quickly enough? Why does no one else seem to have questions? 


With online content, you can re-watch the same video 50 times if you want, and no one has to know.


That being said, Peter’s instruction is top-notch and you’ll likely be catching on more quickly than you expected to! 


You can feel confident in the expertise and dedication of your instructor, even online!


Jiu Jitsu has been Peter’s passion for decades, but not just due to a love of the sport. He genuinely cares about the safety and progression of his students.


All of his students. In person or not.


Founder of anti-bullying foundation “Stand By Me”, he regularly speaks on topics like teaching kids how to solve conflicts without violence. He also speaks internationally on sexual assault and safety. 


You can get the whole family involved and excited to learn!


One pleased parent introduced their kids to jiu jitsu through Peter’s Jiu Jitsu X course: Welcome to Jiu Jitsu - A Beginner’s Guide. Their five star review proclaimed it as “A helpful tool to brush up on fundamentals while getting my kids started on their jiu jitsu journey”


Jiu Jitsu is for everyone, and instructors like Peter are here - ready and willing - to share decades of accumulated knowledge with you. Or with your partner. Or with your friends. Or with your co-workers. 


Or with anyone who wants to feel a little more confident, whether in beginning their jiu jitsu training, navigating their school hallways, or walking to their car at night. 


You can get started right now! 

There is truly no reason to wait! You’ve read to this point and know this is something you want for yourself or someone close to you. 


Peter’s course offers a few free lessons to get the ball rolling. You don’t need anything but a computer, phone, or tablet to get started (and chances are that’s how you’re reading this right now!). Enjoy!
