Our Aim is to provide the best Jiu-Jitsu Instruction in an atmosphere that everyone feels at home.

In 2013 Professor Mike and his wife Lucia started a program for friends and family in their Garage! It kept growing and growing! Now we have a gym full of young, old, beginners, advanced and many more! We have not just created a great environment, but have had success competitively. With overall team champs, World Champs, Pro Champs and much more we have seen nothing but positivity generating from such a welcoming atmosphere! Magness Brazilain Jiu-Jitsu was founded to provide Jiu-Jitsu to Duncanville, Cedar Hill, Desoto, Lancaster, Midlothian and everyone close by!
