Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ)
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) is an effective self defense system with its main emphasis on ground fighting and submission holds involving joint locks and chokeholds. BJJ was originally intended to teach a smaller average person how to beat a larger, stronger and faster opponent in combat focusing on leverage and technique rather than speed and strength. These are some of the reasons our students love our Brazilian Jiu Jitsu class:
- BJJ is a great workout. You can choose to go nice and easy or you can really go intense and get a safe high calorie burning workout.
- There is a belt ranking system. We have classes for beginners and advanced students.
- It’s the perfect “plug and play” martial art. In a short time you can safely learn applicable self defense techniques, spar safely and possibly compete.
- It is a “body chess workout.” This means that you have to use your smarts when you are training and sparring. When you make a move, you have to plan ahead; otherwise you may succumb to the other player’s submission. Not only is it a great workout for your body, but also for your brain.
