Our academy focuses on Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. About 70% of the class is spent on BJJ matwork. We spend the remaining 30% of the time on standup Judo. Live positional training, and live sparring in both BJJ and Judo are done in every class.
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (Also known as Gracie Jiu-Jitsu) focuses on ground grappling. It is a discipline where a smaller weaker person can reliably overcome a larger and stronger opponent, through the use of skillful technique. Arm locks, chokes, sweeps and pins are just a few of the things you will learn in your training.
Our Judo training focuses on standup throwing techniques. Proper application of judo throws allow you to take your opponent to the ground. Judo throws include foot sweeps, hip throws, hand throws, and sacrifice throws.
Although BJJ and Judo are competitive sports, it should be recognized that participation in these sports will greatly enhance your ability in self defense situations. Our curriculum was developed to maximize cross-over between gi, no-gi, and self defense. So the vast majority of what you learn can be applied in all of these areas. These sports are also fun and challenging and will improve your physical fitness and mental well being. Although we train hard, we emphasize safety and learning in our school, to minimize injuries, and to maximize progress and enjoyment. Promotions are possible in both BJJ and Judo.
