Brazilian Jiu Jitsu:
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a martial art, combat sport and self defense system that is one of the most popular and fastest growing activities today. BJJ is an art form that emphasizes ground fighting techniques which involve various chokes and joint locks used to dominate and submit the attacker. BJJ is referred to as the “gentle art” as it was designed to be an effective tool for someone when faced with a bigger stronger opponent. Classes will include a dynamic warm up, technique and drilling followed by live “rolling” (applying techniques in real time).
Classes will either be Gi or No Gi (see class schedule). Gi refers to the traditional kimono worn by martial artists, where as No Gi refers to the art while not wearing a Gi.
Beginners are welcome in all classes and if you do not own a Gi then regular workout wear will work just fine. In the No Gi class regular workout gear is required
