BJJ - GI Class
This class focuses on strategy; it was designed to help the member develop proficiency and heightened awareness. Traditionally Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is practiced in a Gi or Kimono, because the burden the gi places on the body eliminates many physical advantages so the participant is forced to focus on technique.
No-Gi Jiu-Jitsu is a dynamic self-defense system that focuses on applying the fundamentals of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu without the traditional uniform. In No-Gi Jiu-Jitsu the goal is to gain a dominant position using joint-locks and choke holds, forcing your opponent to submit. Much of the ground game aspect of what you see in mixed martial arts (MMA) is learned in No-Gi training and can be applied to everyday situations. Students who have previous wrestling experience tend to find No Gi Jiu-Jitsu to be a great extension to their wrestling background.
Open mat training is designed to allow students to work on specific trouble areas and practice newly learned techniques in a non-instructed format. The class is open to all members of any belt rank or age. This class allows members the opportunity to spar, drill, or analyze techniques and improve their Jiu-Jitsu Game.
We believe that the practice of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is seen as a means to individual development and personal growth. Strength, self-awareness, respect, discipline and responsibility are common core values taught within our kid’s program. The program is structured to teach technique through functional games aimed to improve your child’s agility and flexibility in a fun, friendly and interactive manner.
