Why train with us?

At Colossal Fight Company, we have self defense classes for both adults and children, but we offer so much more!

We know the fear involved in visiting an unfamiliar setting involving martial arts. Everyone is welcome to visit us during any of our regularly scheduled classes. Upon entering the front door you will be greeted warmly and treated with respect.

When choosing a school at which to spend your time and hard-earned money, there are a lot of things to consider. Who is the instructor at the school? Where did they learn their craft? Do they really teach what they claim? Are my best interests truly the focus? The answers to these questions are just as important to us as they are to you.


Gracie Jiu Jitsu was created in Brazil by Helio Gracie. It is derived from Japanese Jiu Jitsu/Judo and was enhanced to utilize leverage as opposed to a player’s strength or power to give a smaller person more opportunity for success. It is not merely a sport, nor is it only for MMA and fighters, Gracie Jiu Jitsu was created for the specific purpose of self-defense.

Often the term “Gracie Jiu Jitsu” gets thrown around and too many schools make false claims in regards to their training, however, we aim to give our students the truest form of the art.

We make a promise at Colossal Fight Company and we take it very seriously: Your safety, both on and off the mats, is our primary focus. We strive to give you techniques that have been tested for decades against resisting opponents, that give you the best options to defend yourself. 

Our adult and youth programs alike are custom-tailored to create the appropriate learning environment for maximum understanding, retention, and effectiveness. We do not teach from a pre-canned list, instead we constantly observe student progress and adjust our teaching accordingly. Each class is structured for each student, from beginners to more experienced students, to constantly improve their ability.

That being said, we teach techniques that allow our students to compete in many venues, including jiu jitsu, judo, submission grappling, and mixed martial arts. It is our goal to equip students for as many self-defense and competitive arenas as possible.


There are many other schools in the area to choose to train with. Ultimately, each potential student must ask themselves what they value for their time and tuition. We offer the highest level of quality, with instructors who are constantly bettering themselves. Many of our instructors and students consistently test themselves in a competitive setting in order to refine their training. 

Not only do we offer jiu jitsu multiple times a week in Pocatello, but our students are welcomed at a number of academies all over the Intermountain West for training. 

At Colossal Fight Company, we truly offer jiu jitsu to the entire family! We are honored to be here serving our students and would like the opportunity to prove our worth for your needs. Come learn more than just Jiu Jitsu, it is time to begin an entirely new and healthy lifestyle!


Only time practicing on the mats will ensure preparedness in an altercation on the street, not a belt ranking. That said, it is important for many students to see a progression. All practitioners of martial arts need a way to gauge their progress and their ability. Achieving belt rank with Colossal is a demanding yet very rewarding experience. With us, you will learn vital aspects of self-defense during every class. Nothing is held back. You literally learn techniques that may be considered “black belt techniques" each and every training session no matter your belt ranking.

Colossal Fight Company is not a "belt mill," student advancement is earned and, thus, our students feel an incredible achievement when promoted. We ensure that our students demonstrate excellence when they visit other academies or compete. 


Colossal Fight Company is proud to be a We Defy Foundation approved training center!
