Brazilian Jiu Jitsu
Brazilian jiu jitsu is a grappling-based martial art whose central theme is the skill of controlling a resisting opponent in ways that force him or her to submit. Due to the fact that control is generally easier on the ground than in a standing position, much of the technique of Brazilian jiu jitsu is centered around the skill of taking an opponent down to the ground and maneuvering for dominant control positions from where the opponent can be rendered harmless or submitted.
If you are new to Brazilian Jiu-jitsu or looking to sharpen your fundamentals, then this program is a perfect start for you. We have a 36 technique Fundamental program which is designed to take the novice through the major positions, attacks and defences in BJJ with a focus on Self Defence.
You will learn both techniques from standing and on the ground. This is program continuously cycles through the techniques so that you can join us at anytime.
Classes are structured and supervised to maximize your learning experience, safety and enjoyment.
Focus is put on positional sparring and reflex development to improve your muscle memory of each technique.
Once you have a solid understanding of the fundamentals, you can graduate to the advance class to further improve your BJJ skills. In this program you will build on your fundamental techniques by learning new variations and strategies for both attacks and defense.
This class is focused on a combination of technical drilling, positional sparring and sparring.
