Technique Lab is a family-friendly jiu jitsu academy located right in the heart of West Richland. We are excited to bring high level jiu jitsu instruction to the community. We specialize in Brazilian jiu jitsu and have a well rounded approach that includes self-defense, sport jiu jitsu, bully proofing, gi, and nogi. We offer all our classes five days a week. At Technique Lab, you will get one-on-one time with instructors and personal feedback. We can help you reach your goals, whether you want to lose weight, get fit, be a casual practitioner and have a physical outlet, become more confident by learning some practical self-defense, or train to be a high level competitor or future world champion!
Programs for All Ages
Kids enrolled in our program will discover a ton about themselves and their strengths and weaknesses. They will learn self-defense skills and tactics to effectively deal with bullies. They will gain self confidence, learn how to deal with their emotions, and have a positive physical outlet.
Adults of all ages are encouraged to come train. Classes are safe, fun, and don't require any previous experience. Our instructors break everything down and give personal feedback to everyone.
We have afternoon and evening classes five days a week, alternating between gi and nogi, and incorporate self-defense and bully proofing into all our kids, teens, and adult fundamentals classes. We offer an all-levels noon class five days a week as well to accommodate those who want to train on their lunch break or who are available during the day. We also offer private training sessions throughout the week, and on weekends for Brazilian jiu jitsu, boxing, or muay Thai.
The Technique Lab Advantage
jiu jitsu specialists
We don't just provide sport jiu jitsu training and pass it off as self-defense. We incorporate actual self-defense and bully proofing into our kids, teens, and adult fundamentals curriculums so everyone learns how to effectively defend themselves from bigger, stronger would-be attackers.
Sport Jiu Jitsu
In addition to self-defense training and bully proofing, we provide sport specific training, competition prep, and explain all the rules and regulations so everyone is prepared to compete in jiu jitsu competitions if they choose to do so.
Gi and Nogi
We offer regularly scheduled classes in both gi and nogi in order to ensure that you become well rounded and exposed to the full spectrum of available techniques.
Some of our testimonials from our students
I’m so excited for this gym to open in West Richland! Coach Chris is a great instructor. Not only does he give amazing details, you can see how much he enjoys teaching. I love how he caters his feedback to the needs, abilities, and interests of his students.
Super excited for technique lab to finally open. I’ve trained with coach Chris for a couple of years now and he’s one of the best teachers I’ve ever had. His attention to detail and calm demeanor have really helped with my progression. It’s obvious from the first time meeting Chris that he has a love for jiujitsu and wants to pass it on. The Tri-Cities will be lucky to have his gym.
I’m very excited for the experience, depth of knowledge, professionalism, patience and passion Coach Chris will bring to the area at Technique Lab. He provides safe training opportunities for all age groups and levels from recreational practitioners to competitive athletes. His wife Holly also adds significant value providing high standards in daily training and has demonstrated efficacy in competition. She also offers clear and concise instruction while coaching and offers a safe and welcoming experience for women. Technique Lab is certain to offer some of the highest level of training and instruction in eastern WA. Highly recommended!
