What is Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ)?
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) is a grappling based martial art and Self Defense system in which students learn how to control a resisting opponent using leverage and positioning. Due to the fact that control is easier on the ground than in a standing position, the basic concept of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is to take your opponent to the ground, transition or move to a dominant control position where you can execute a submission technique forcing your opponent to submit.
Controlling and overcoming an opponent with greater size, strength and aggression is what sets Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) apart from many other martial arts. This is done by utilizing leverage, grip and positioning against your opponent. Students of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) often gain a deep understanding of how the body works and the limits of the human body.
Students benefit greatly from increased physical fitness, problem-solving, self-knowledge of their mind and body as well as social interaction within a large group of fellow students learning and having fun together.
New students are encouraged to attend a free introductory private lesson with one of our instructors to prepare them for our group Fundamentals class.
Our Fundamentals Program is designed to educate students about the core foundations and concepts of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) and how these simple and fundamental techniques can be applied in a Self Defense situation. In these Fundamental classes our instructors follow a very structured and detail oriented curriculum that guides our students step by step to learning the necessities of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ).
Once a student has built a solid base of foundations from the Fundamentals Program and are confident in their skills we encourage students to also start training in our Advanced classes where they will learn more specialized techniques, positions and strategies to develop their own style of ‘”game”. These classes have a weekly focus and live training in every class to practice applying techniques against a resisting opponent.
