Watershed is a proud member of the renowned Relson Gracie Association. We are deeply committed to sharing the art of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu with integrity, humility, and honor. To us, Jiu Jitsu is more than just a martial art. It's a way of life.
Our academy is firmly rooted in the belief that efficiency, patience, and control are pivotal to success. Both on, and off the mats. We aspire to be a little better each day. To that point, our mission at Watershed is to help our students discover the many benefits of training Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.

Shawn Maines is a US Army veteran and a BJJ black belt under James Thrift III (4th degree black belt directly under grandmaster Relson Gracie). Shawn brings over 16 years of Jiu Jitsu experience and his patient, yet distinctly enthusiastic style of instruction to historic Fredericksburg.
At the core of the Watershed Kids Jiu Jitsu program is the belief that people learn best when they are having fun. We use a 'learning by doing' approach to teach Jiu Jitsu movements and technique. It may seem (and feel) like a lot of play, but through games and guided instruction our students can quickly develop skills and technique, and demonstrate the benefits of training Jiu Jitsu.
