Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a grappling based martial art that gives students the tools to potentially subdue larger, stronger opponents using technique and leverage. Members will learn how to effectively apply takedowns, sweeps, joint locks, and chokeholds. In addition, they will learn to utilize the previous techniques while escaping inferior positions and achieving dominant ones.

This is a class for those who have limited to no experience in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (around 0-3 months). If you are brand new and interested in grappling, this is the best place to start. Attendees will learn the most fundamental principles of BJJ. The curriculum for this course covers important concepts, the main positions of BJJ and what you should be trying to achieve in those positions. Members typically get a workout in this class, but need not worry about it being too physically demanding. No prerequisite fitness level is required. A uniform is not required while you are checking classes out. However, if you plan to stick with it, you will want to get one eventually. We can help you get the right size when you’re ready, and we allow White, Blue and Black Gis.
In this class, we cover basic and intermediate level concepts and techniques of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Typically we require 3 months or more of formal BJJ training to attend this course, and a uniform is necessary (White, Blue or Black). Due to the importance of the basics, you will see all skill levels attending these classes, from beginners to experienced practitioners.
Our Jiu-Jitsu curriculum is designed to teach to your appropriate skill level. After learning the core concepts in our Basics and Fundamentals classes, you will eventually be ready to attend our Advanced BJJ program. We cover similar material to the beginner program, but in this class, we go further in-depth. In addition to more details, we add more complex drills, positions and techniques. A Gi is required for this class and we ask that you have a fair amount of experience (at least a year) to get the most out of it. If you are unsure if you are ready to attend this class, feel free to ask one of the coaches, and we can help determine that.
No-Gi Jiu-Jitsu & Wrestling
In this class, we cover many of the same positions and concepts of the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu program. However, the difference is that you do not wear a uniform, so the grips and techniques differ slightly. We also put a lot more emphasis on wrestling in this class. You will learn take-downs, throws, and trips that will enable you to get your partner to the ground where you will be able to utilize the corresponding Jiu-Jitsu techniques you are learning. Most people just wear shorts and a t-shirt for this class, and we encourage you to have at least 3 months of experience in BJJ and/or wrestling before attending.
Open Mat is a time where the mat space is available for members to train anything they feel will help them improve. There is no formal instruction, but members often use the time to practice and refine techniques that they haven’t mastered yet. People are free to drill technique, hit pads/heavy bags, and spar or grapple live. This class is probably not the best place to start if you are brand new. Since there isn’t any formal instruction, it will be hard to train without knowing what to work on. However, after attending regular classes for a few months, open mat is a great way to get extra practice. Once you begin attending open mat, maximize your time by coming in with an idea of what you would like to focus on. This is “training with a purpose,” and it will help you get better faster. Also, be prepared to give and take. If someone helps you drill something you’re working on, be sure to reciprocate and help them work on their desired content as well. It’s teamwork!
