Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) is a martial art focusing largely on grappling and ground fighting. It focuses on the principles of leverage and proper technique to obtain dominant control on the ground, and provides a greater position to resolve conflict by using submission holds.
BJJ has been proven, when used properly, to be an effective method for dealing with bigger and stronger opponents and has become increasingly popular due in part to its great success in Mixed Martial Arts (MMA). A student can train in BJJ for self defense, sport jiu-jitsu (and submission grappling) and mixed martial arts competition. It has found its way into the training regiment of nearly every successful martial artist worldwide
Coming into a martial arts academy can be intimidating for the beginning student. Our goal with the fundamentals class is to allow our students to learn jiu-jitsu by focusing on the controlled drilling of techniques without active sparring. The class also serves as a foundation for all students of BJJ, teaching the principles of the art and committing the core movements to muscle memory.
Our Intermediate class is focused on the combination of fundamental, intermediate and advanced Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. We have designed this class to begin with drilling, followed by Jiu-Jitsu techniques, expanding into the live position training. With this class, the instructor reinforces how we are here to have fun with our training, while leaving our ego outside the mat.
For the student who is interested in competing in the sport, or if the student is just interested in testing his knowledge in a more practical setting, our advanced class offers World-class instruction.
