We believe that jiu jitsu can be for everyone regardless of age, physical ability, or experience. Our goal is to provide a safe gym environment that allows you to start or continue your jiu jitsu training surrounded by positive and welcoming team mates.

Jiu Jitsu is a martial art and combat sport based on ground fighting and submission holds. BJJ focuses on the skill of taking an opponent to the ground, controlling them, gaining a dominant position and using a number of techniques to force them into submission via joint locks or choke holds.

I came here as an experienced competition purple belt and love everything about this school. RJJ teaches inclusive classes that are beneficial for everybody; from the first day white belt to an experienced black belt, everybody benefits.Incredibly grateful to be training with such an awesome group of people.

Brandon Lyons | RJJ Member

If you’re in the area and you don’t come and train at RJJ you’re doing your self an injustice. Amazing instruction in bjj and wrestling is just the tip of the iceberg. Of all the gyms I’ve trained at I’ve never seen a display of brotherhood to be found on a mat. Everyone is there for each other on and off that mat. And from day 1 you are going to feel included in this family that Billy and Elyse to built. I know how intimidating it can be to go to a new school or try a combat sport please do yourself a favor and walk through the door of RJJ.

Kylie Rash | RJJ Member

Riverftont Jiu-Jitsu is one of the most welcoming environments I've ever been in. It can be scary to start anything new, especially a combat sport like Jiu-Jitsu. But, I genuinely feel like a member of the family here. I highly recommend this place to anyone who is even moderately interested in BJJ.

My kids first start with Billy Shaw at a previous school. In life I have learned that being good at something(he is excellent by the way) doesn’t mean you are necessarily a good teacher. Billy is great at both. He has taught my son confidence and skills he didn’t know that he possessed. We travel from Delaware County, Pa to Delaware for his instruction. He is worth it.

Gene Reed| RJJ Member

The environment at Riverfront Jiu Jitsu is second to none. No matter your skill level or your reason for training, Riverfront Jiu Jitsu is accommodating to everyone. The amount of classes offered and the time and attention that is placed on each class has made my time at Riverfront Jiu Jitsu a blast. The hardest part of starting anything is showing up, but the physical and mental benefits that jiu jitsu has to offer far outweigh the awkwardness of walking through the door for the first time.

Miguel Cruz | RJJ Member

I have been training at Riverfront Jiu Jitsu for nearly 10 months. It has made an immediate impact on my life. I think that jiu jitsu would be a worthwhile venture anywhere. But training with Billy at RJJ is more challenging and simultaneously rewarding than I could imagine anything could be. His attention to detail is impeccable. Everyone at the gym is welcoming and kind regardless of whatever your experience or fitness level is. I couldn’t ask for a better place to have started Jiu Jitsu.

The atmosphere Coach Billy Shaw has created and maintained can’t be beat. Coach Billy truly cares about every single person who’s a part of the RJJ family and it shows as his number one goal is to help all of his students get better every day. The warm, welcoming environment is also thanks to everyone who trains at RJJ on a daily basis, constantly helping each other learn and get better. Whether you’re looking to compete, learn a new skill, be a part of an awesome team or just want a new hobby that keeps you active, Coach Billy will ensure that RJJ is the place for you.

My son was hesitant about doing jit jitsu, once he started the class he flourished. His confidence, determination and discipline has increased dramatically. I really appreciate the attention they give the children. They are teaching valuable lessons in a fun setting. When we return home my son is practicing what he learned. I am extremely pleased with the class, the instructors and friendliness they show. They are on the mat helping the kids understand the moves. The way they engage with the kids is just AMAZING.

Chris Williams | RJJ Member

I’ve been doing BJJ for over 10 years, trained everywhere from Philly to Baltimore and everywhere in between. Riverfront embodies what jiu-jitsu is supposed to be on every level and I’ve found a home here. Billy Shaw is a top notch black belt, coach and all around great dude. Wether you’re a competitor or a beginner there is room for you. Come be part of a team on the rise.

Great place to train! I was just visiting Delaware and needed a place to train at. Billy and everyone there was super friendly and respectful. They are also very law enforcement friendly.

Will definitely be coming back here when I’m back in Delaware.

Veronica Garrison | RJJ Parent

I don’t even know where to begin! First and for most the children's program is Absolutely amazing! Billy and Elyse are wonderful with my two children! They are very kind hearted, understanding and make you feel very welcomed and comfortable!! I have noticed since my son has been doing jiu jitsu he is a total different child, he’s more focused, his attitude has changed majorly! If your looking for jiu jitsu for children this is DEFINITELY the place to go!!

Rich Fell | RJJ Visitor

I was back in town visiting family for a few days and dropped in for two days. I reached out via Insta and they were very communicative. Excellent Clean Facility & PERFECT Mats!! Billy & rest of the team were very welcoming and accommodating. Got some instructional time along with positional sparing. No-Gi & Gi classes were awesome. Highly recommend if you are passing through or looking to train in the Wilmington Area. I will definitely be coming back any time I am in the area! Thank you Billy & Elyse & Riverfront Team!!
