Gaining superior position, maintaining it, and applying leverage is the foundation of Jiu Jitsu, a form of martial arts famous for its devastating ground fighting techniques.

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Classes

Classes focus on teaching techniques against non-resistant or semi-resistant partners.  The techniques taught are also practiced in isolation, or position only sparring, where one practitioner executes a set of techniques to gain a desired outcome.  Free style sparring, commonly referred to as rolling, incorporates all learned techniques and is an important part of each class.  Superior physical conditioning is an unavoidable part of training.

While Brazilian Jiu Jitsu teaches skills that can be used in real life defensive situations, the sporting aspect of Jiu Jitsu – that which people train in –  will get you in great physical shape.

Training focuses on gaining dominant position without the use of strikes. This allows practitioners to practice at full speed and with full strength with a comparatively small risk for injury.  The effort used to dominate an exchange and set up submissions is a workout like no other.

Perfect For Ground Fighting

Jiu Jitsu employs a range of techniques to bring an opponent to the ground, some of which are not used in other combat sports such as Judo or Wrestling.

Once the opponent is on the ground, a number of maneuvers and counters are available to manipulate the opponent into a suitable position for the application of a submission technique.

Achieving a dominant position on the ground is one of the hallmarks of BJJ, which includes effective use of the guard position to defend oneself from bottom and passing the guard to dominate from top position or back position.  

This system of maneuvering and manipulation can be likened to a form of physical chess where a submission is the equivalent of checkmate because the opponent is left with no other option but to submit or get injured.
