What is Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu?
Self Defense: BJJ is first and foremost a proven and effective form of self defense. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu focuses on grappling and submission techniques, executed both standing and on the ground. The emphasis is on closing the distance and utilizing leverage and proper body mechanics to overcome a larger/stronger opponent.
Fitness: The beauty of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is that unlike traditional exercise programs, it provides a challenge that is equal parts physical and mental. You will find yourself so engaged in learning that you might not even notice that you are getting into the best shape of your life!
Whether you are coming from a sedentary lifestyle or are already an accomplished athlete, with regular training you can expect:
- Improved body composition
- Increased cardiovascular capacity
- Increased muscular strength and endurance
- Improved body awareness, coordination and flexibility.
Competition: Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is the worlds fastest growing combat sport. For students who are so inclined, BJJ and submission grappling tournaments provide a venue to test their techniques against competitors from other academies in a live setting. While competition can be a valuable experience, there is no expectation or pressure for our students to compete.
