The Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu classes teach foundation techniques in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Students learn positioning, sweeps, and submissions. The main focus of this syllabus is on technique and basic movements. Students can gain enough knowledge and training to begin competing at BJJ and grappling tournaments. All students are required to train in a gi uniform that is designed for BJJ or Judo.
Made famous by the Gracie family, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) is a martial art based on grappling and ground fighting techniques. The aim of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is to control and subdue a larger and stronger opponent through the use of superior techniques, leverage, and body mechanics. With an emphasis on technical grappling rather than striking, students are able to practice with varying levels of intensity, decreasing the threat of serious injuries which can sometimes occur in other martial arts.
The Brazilian Jiu Jitsu student normally practices in a gi or kimono, a martial arts uniform similar to a judo outfit. In addition, we also train "no-gi" BJJ, commonly referred to as submission wrestling. In no-gi BJJ, students typically wear t-shirts and shorts instead of the traditional gi.
We train with progressive resistance in a fun, relaxed, and friendly environment. You will learn takedowns, pin escapes, sweeps (reversals), chokes, joint locks, and much more! Whether your goals are self-defense, competition, or just to have fun, there is a place for you at our gym!
