Primate Jiu Jitsu is conveniently located in the heart of midtown Tulsa across from Promenade Mall at the intersection of 41st and Hwy 44. Though we started with only 900 sq ft of space, we now operate out of a beautiful 5,300 sq ft facility with 1,500 sq ft of mats secured on top of shock-absorbent Judo sub-floors. Accommodations include 5 changing rooms, 2 bathrooms, a shower, a warm-up area, and plenty of seating for parents, friends, and guests.
We owe this expansion in part to our amazing students who uphold the standards of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and the vision of academy owner Professor Matt Vernon, who sought to cultivate an environment where students would feel welcomed, safe, encouraged, and enjoy an ever-evolving curriculum of top notch martial arts instruction. To read more about our facility, policies, and instructors, please click here.
In addition to Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, we also offer Muay Thai and Judo classes for adults 13 and up, and BJJ for kids ages 5-12. We hold classes at multiple times throughout the day (early mornings, noon, and evenings) to accommodate a variety of schedules, and all of our classes are beginner-friendly.

I have been coming to Primate for about a 2 months now. As someone who is brand new to this sport I honestly don’t think I could have found a better place to start. Matt is a phenomenal coach who has a way of breaking down techniques and concepts that makes it easy to grasp. On top of that the atmosphere is amazing, everyone I have rolled with has been truly helpful, encouraging and concerned with my progress. It is this atmosphere from the coaching all the way down that keeps me coming back. This has been a fantastic experience and I can’t recommend it enough.
I wanted to do something like this for a while but was apprehensive due to being middle-aged, out of shape, and unathletic. Really glad I joined Primate BJJ. It’s helping me improve not just physically but as an overall person. Teaching is great and everyone is super encouraging and helpful. Challenging and satisfying at the same time. I’d encourage anyone to give Primate BJJ a shot.
LIFE CHANGING EXPERIENCE! The men and women of Primate BJJ are the most helpful, patient and down-to-earth group of people you will ever meet on or off the mat, and the owner/instructor, Matt Vernon, genuinely wants to see every one of his students succeed. Thanks to all at Team Primate for a big push in the right direction!
