We are the Bay Jiu-Jitsu Academy

Our vision is to offer accessible and world-class training to people of all ages, sizes, genders, and backgrounds in the multiple athletic programs offered. We serve not only athletes, but anybody looking to learn new skills, get in shape, have fun, and join our community.


The Bay Jiu-Jitsu Academy was founded in 2008 by Stephan Goyne and initially housed inside of K-One Fitness in San Francisco. Three years later, the academy got its own home with the opening of the first facility in Japantown SF in July of 2011. The academy grew in July of 2012 with the opening of the second facility in Oakland/Piedmont. The third addition to the academy was in July of 2013 with the opening of the Mission SF facility. In March 2016, Bay Jiu-Jitsu outgrew it’s original east bay location in Oakland/Piedmont, leading to the grand opening of our most recent facility in Berkeley, minutes from the University of California campus.
