The focal point of the basic 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 Gi, also known as a kimono. Students learn and practice submissions, escapes, positioning and self defense. The basics class is directed not only for the beginner but also for the more advanced students to sharpen basic techniques. When a student joins the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu program, he/she is monitored by the instructors and is informed when ready to advance. We require this because there are core techniques that are essential to learn before progress in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is possible. These are the techniques that are emphasized in the beginner classes.
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. Please check the schedule for class specifics. This class is designed for students interested in advanced techniques for competition and self-defense. Students learn and practice advanced sweeps, submissions, escapes and counters, how to reverse an attacker and how to force their opponent into submission. Detailed instruction in technique, specific drilling, and position advancement are the main focus of this class. Competition is encouraged, but not required.
