Welcome To Zenyo
We offer programs in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu for adults and children, conveniently located inside the Baltimore city limits. Classes are taught by John David Emmett, a black belt with nearly 20 years experience. Zenyo (pronounced zen-u) translates from Japanese as "good use." Zenyo is a way of organizing your body and mind for powerful but relaxed movement. Based around a revolutionary system of movement lessons, we teach a way of learning that is not only fun and easy to retain, but can be used in all areas of life to create "good use" on and off the mat.
Zenyo is learning a new way to be. Zenyo emphasizes a different way of action, one that does not focus on athleticism, power, effort and repetition but on awareness, ease and efficiency. This new approach allows students to accomplish things beyond their previous ability. Our goal at Zenyo Jiu Jitsu in Baltimore is to share Brazilian Jiu Jitsu in a way that is accessible to everyone. We foster each student's journey in a constructive, encouraging manner that really shows jiu jitsu can be for all.
