Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Beginners


Learn self-defense with UFC Fighter, Ben Rothwell!  Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) is a sport that develops self-defense, strength, endurance, balance, coordination, confidence, and self-control.  Beginner BJJ welcomes all adults (14 yrs +), male or female, of any body type and conditioning level.  This is for beginners with no experience,starting at square one.  A great class for those who may be intimidated by the mixed level class!  Rothwell teaches proper breathing techniques, body movement, basic positions, and the foundations of BJJ.  There is no sparring or rolling, only technique, in this beginner class.  After some time in this Beginner BJJ class, you will be prepared to advance into the mixed level BJJ class.  Then, in the mixed level BJJ class with black belts Luiz and Thiago, you will learn submissions, defenses, take downs, restraint and escape techniques.

Stop by Tuesday May 9 to try it out.  Come 10 minutes before class to fill out your waiver and get a tour of the facility.  Everyone’s first class is free.  After your trial class, there are multiple membership options so come in to find out what works best for you.  Wear comfortable workout clothing. A gi (uniform) will be required for participation in the class after the first day.  This uniform is the same as is required in the mixed level BJJ class.
