Class Benefits

BJJ has several applications: 1) sport grappling tournaments (GI or NO GI) 2) mixed martial arts and 3) self-defense situations.  BJJ sparring commonly referred to as “rolling.” This type of live training plays an important role in training. It’s one of the few combat sports in which you can “spar” or “roll” with 100% output without fear of getting injured or injuring your opponent. 

Despite its effectiveness in live combat, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is actually referred to as “the gentle art,” because it encourages the practitioner to flow with the energy of the opponent, instead of opposing that energy. It’s also a humane way to subdue an attacker, without maiming them or causing severe damage. That’s why many police departments and military units around the world integrate BJJ into their training. 

One of the best martial arts for self defense.  The entire training program is presented in such a way that you can learn Brazilian Jiu Jitsu smoothly and effectively under the guidance of experienced instructors.  The goal of BJJ is to submit your opponent or force him to tap out.  This can be achieved in many ways, including strangleholds, chokes, leg and arm locks.  Classes are held in the Gi, where students can work on getting black belts. Don’t worry if you don’t have a Gi, we will provide it for you.  At the end of a series of trainings, having demonstrated your skills in training, you can always receive a badge of distinction – a new belt of the corresponding color from the hands of a mentor.  We also compete regularly at local and international BJJ competitions.

Brazilian jiu-jitsu is a form of submission wrestling similar to amateur wrestling and judo.  The goal of BJJ is to “subdue” your opponent or force him to tap out.  This can be achieved in many ways, including chokeholds, chokeholds, handholds, and footholds.  Classes are held in the gi, where students can work on getting black belts, and without the gi.  A black belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is considered the hardest achievement in the martial arts.  This class is great for kids, people looking to lose weight, or people who are interested in self defense.
