The location for this Jiu-Jitsu Outlet Jamboree is ten minutes outside of Houston Missouri. You can find it on Google Maps if you search for "Jiu-Jitsu Outlet Houston Missouri".
This nature lover's paradise is located beside the Little Piney river in the depths of a forest. Sitting in the middle of the Ozarks, you will experience the quiet and peace of the countryside.
Bring some binoculars if you love to birdwatch! Sitting down at the river, you might see bald eagles, owls, blue herons, wild ducks, and a lot more.
The Jiu-Jitsu Outlet Academy is a dedicated space equipped to help transform you into a martial arts ninja. With 1,100 square feet of mat space, you will have all the room you need to get some rolls in and learn how to grapple.
We will be using the academy area as the main hub for martial arts classes and open mat time throughout the day.
Our class is beginner friendly and designed to help you get introduced to the martial arts without stress or discouragement.
We will begin the Jamboree with a Judo class at 10am.
There will also be "open mat" time from 2-5pm in the afternoon where you can learn techniques from more experienced martial artists or roll with a friend.
After the Judo class, we will walk down the hill for a polar plunge in the Little Piney river!
To prepare our bodies for this experience, we will engage in some Wim Hof style breath work together beside a fire on the beach. After warming up, we will get into the water and strengthen our minds and bodies.
Cold water immersion has been shown to stimulate the vagus nerve system in your body which helps all of your organs function properly... It is also a natural way to reduce inflammation and decrease anxiety.
Throughout the day, we will be entertained by live music provided by Missouri musicians like The Artist 9, Leesa Johnson, and more (full lineup soon to be announced).
Lunch and dinner will be provided.
For lunch, we will host a potluck style buffet where you will be able to make a plate of food and enjoy networking with the local community.
For dinner, we will be serving grass finished beef burgers purchased from local farmers for a meal around the fire.
We will also have s'more kits for dessert 🤩.
You are encouraged to bring a dish to share during the potluck lunch but this is not a requirement. There will be plenty of food to go around.
