Jiu-Jitsu Classes

Jiu-Jitsu With Jen Z

No time like the present to try a Jiu-jitsu class! Whether you have experience in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu or are a beginner, all are welcome! Join my Women’s only classes/program in Evanston or in Lake Forest! Schedules are below! BJJ is great for weight-loss, confidence, stress-relief, fitness, self-defense and fun! I also offer private or semi-private sessions at my space, Jen Z’s Beauty Services, in Highland Park.
See you on the mats!

I am a Brown Belt Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu athlete, competitor and instructor. I train under Black Belts Jeff Serafin and Ilya Bodnya. I am a Pan Am & Masters Worlds medalist and IBJJF multiple time champ and double gold champ. I am sponsored by Fuji Sports, The Athletes Sports Bag, Highland Park Physical Medicine & BJJ Tees. Jiu-jitsu is my life and it is my passion to spread my love of the art and sport through teaching!
