Nathan and Dawn Lott started their first gym in 2004 in a shed with three small children. God has blessed each day and  are fortunate to have their family teaching and operating  Zachary and Denham Springs locations. Excelsior Jiu -Jitsu was founded in 2017 and has grown with several affiliate gyms. In 2017 Excelsior officially joined the Trujitsu team headquartered in Bakersfield California.  Trujitsu is led by Professor Matt Baker. 

Jiu-Jitsu can be an intimidating sport. At Excelsior Jiu-Jitsu, you are joining a community that is devoted to the growth and well being of our members on and off the mats. You will get sore and have an occasional injury. That is part of it. However, Jiu-Jitsu is real. We will teach you and prepare you for any real life situation that may arise. It is our hope that you will never be forced to defend yourself outside of the gym, but if you do we want you to be ready. To assure this, live training with a resisting or attacking opponent is a must. At first it is a little uncomfortable and your body will hurt in strange places, but you must keep going. Students that can make it past the first month have seen tremendous improvements in their health and personal lives. We will ask you to push yourself as far as you can today with the goal of taking one more step tomorrow. No matter your age, gender, or physical condition, you can accomplish anything with hard work and dedication.
