All our instructors are advanced degree black belts and accomplished national & international champions. Please come and join us to discover this great sport and international community!
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ)
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a martial art derived from traditional Japanese Ju-Jutsu, the budo of the Samurais. It was perfected in Brazil as a ground fighting discipline focusing on immobilizing your opponent using joint locks and submissions. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) is a great discipline to learn for self-defense and to develop self-confidence. This class is a great introduction for everyone seeking to learn Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. The students will learn fundamental Jiu-jitsu techniques such as movement, positioning, guarding and basic submissions, all under the expert supervision of our BJJ Sensei.
Wrestling is an Olympic fighting discipline dating back to early civilization. During this session, our students will learn Greco-Roman style wrestling. We will start with basic stance, movement and pins and move into dynamic leg and body take downs technique. No prior wrestling experience is required, and we will cover all the basics in this session, emphasizing on good form and movements and learning some awesome ways to defend ourselves along the way.
