The Base Jiu Jitsu is the Treasure Valley’s first and only facility dedicated solely to teaching Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ). Founded in 2005 by BJJ Black Belt Mitch Coats. In 2017 Jiu Jitsu Black Belt Ben Buttars took over operations of The Base, carrying the tradition forward as Boise’s premier Jiu Jitsu learning institute for all levels, from Beginner Kids to Advanced Adults, The Base Covers it all.
The Head Instructor, Ben Buttars, regularly competes and travels with the team to support and coach at competitive Brazilian Jiu Jitsu tournaments around the region. Our team of coaches work every day with our students to ensure that not only are they skilled, but they are morally principled in the tradition and heritage of Jiu Jitsu.
