Jiu-Jitsu is a martial art system that focuses on grappling and especially ground fighting. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu was formed from Kodokan Judo ground fighting fundamentals that were taught by a number of individuals. Brazilian jiu-jitsu eventually came to be its own combat sport through the experiments, practices, and adaptation of judo through Carlos and Hélio Gracie who passed their knowledge on to their extended family.
BJJ promotes the concept that a smaller, weaker person can successfully defend themselves or another against a bigger, stronger, heavier assailant by using proper technique, leverage, and most notably, taking the fight to the ground, and then applying joint locks and chokeholds to defeat the opponent. BJJ training can be used for sport grappling tournaments and in self-defense situations. Sparring (commonly referred to as “rolling” within the BJJ community) and live drilling play a major role in training.
Since its inception in 1882, its parent art of judo was separated from older systems of Japanese jujutsu by an important difference that was passed on to Brazilian jiu-jitsu. It is not solely a martial art; it is also a sport, a method for promoting physical fitness and building character in young people, and ultimately a way of life.
This class is intended for teenagers and adults. The adult class has a great pace of learning, with tougher exercises, advanced drills, and strength & conditioning activities. The class will not only teach you how to defend yourself, but will teach you how to handle yourself with confidence in everyday situations. Students should expect a fun and fast paced learning environment. Side-effects of the class also include gaining strength, less stress, the ability to handle all types of situations better, meeting new people, and SMILING.
