BEGINNER / ALL LEVEL   (Fundamentals)           

The focal point of the beginner class is entirely on technique. The class focuses on learning and applying fundamental techniques of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Students practice various techniques using a traditional KIMONO, also known as a GI. Students learn and practice submissions, escapes, positioning and self defense. The fundamentals class is directed not only for the beginner but also for the more advanced students to sharpen basic techniques. We require this because there are core techniques that are essential to learn before progress in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is possible.


Once the student has been invited, the student is welcome to attend both the beginner classes as well as the intermediate/advanced class. The intermediate/advanced classes will vary each night. This class is designed for students interested in advanced techniques for competition and self-defense. Detailed instruction in technique, specific drilling, and position advancement are the main focus of this class. Competition is encouraged, but not required.


The class is based on techniques of traditional Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, and the fundamental principles remain the same. Adjustments are made to compensate for the lack of a uniform to hold on to. In Submission Grappling you learn a whole new set of grips. The wrists, back of the neck, ankle, knee and elbow grips are all different than traditional Gi grips. Students learn takedowns, positions, transitions, escapes, reversals and how to apply and defend against joint locks, chokes and other submission holds.
We think that it is important for students to understand both aspects, considering most tournaments offer both gi and No-Gi divisions.
No-Gi training makes for a faster and more dynamic style of fighting. If you are interested in a good fitness program or just to be a more complete fighter, the No-Gi program offers a good combination of both.
