Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu

CLASS DESCRIPTION:

Learn how to defend yourself while having fun and getting fit!  Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) is a strategic, relatively nonviolent method of self-defense.  It utilizes leverage, locks and holds that can neutralize a bigger, stronger opponent.  Luiz and Thiago teach Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu submission, defense, take down, restraint, and escape techniques.  Effective self-defense skills are developed along with your level of strength, endurance, balance, coordination, and confidence.  After practicing the techniques, put what you learned into action while grappling with other students and instructor(s).  

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu keeps students excited about learning and progressing with a traditional belt system.  Students begin as a white belt and work their way towards a black belt.  After showing progress, a “stripe” is earned.  After 4 stripes, the student knows they are ready to test for their next level belt.  Belts are earned, not given.  Each belt test has a specific set of moves and techniques that must be demonstrated.  The student will know what is on the test and will practice the necessary techniques in the weeks leading up to the test.

Our mixed level BJJ class welcomes students who have graduated from the Beginner BJJ class at Rothwell MMA, or have some prior experience.
