Adult Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu
Challenge your mental and physical fitness in our adult Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu classes!
Our adult Jiu Jitsu classes are based upon a proven formula. Our process begins with simple instruction and demonstration of BJJ techniques, followed by student practice, feedback, live BJJ training, and competitions, if desired. At our Jiu Jitsu school, we are lucky to offer high-quality instruction from world-class athletes who work with you to develop BJJ techniques.
In our adult BJJ classes, you’ll Increase your energy and concentration levels as you develop your self-defense technique. However, we are more than just a BJJ school: our Jiu Jitsu classes for adults offer a family environment where everyone becomes part of a team. We offer several levels of adult Brazilian Jiu Jitsu: new students can learn the fundamentals in our Fundamentals classes, while more experienced students can join our Advanced and Black Belt Classes.
Our fundamental classes follow several well-established fundamental curriculums (Ribeiro, Draculino, Gracie Barra, etc). The curriculum repeats itself in three-month cycles and can be joined anytime.
Classes start with a light warm up and a demonstration of several techniques. Then, we drill these techniques under the coaches’ supervision, finishing with some positional sparring or drilling of the learned techniques.
Students with less than a year experience, including new beginners, must start in the Fundamentals class. Once students have two stripes on their belt (3 months), they can start going to the Advanced class, but we strongly recommend sticking with Fundamentals for the first year to solidify these important basic techniques.
Our advanced class are taught by Black Belt World Champion “Super Dave” Rothwell.
Once the student has a strong understanding of the foundations they are invited to the advanced class. In the advanced class the foundation of fundaments are still perfected, while progressing to the more advanced areas of Jiu-Jitsu.
Techniques will focus on particular positions with lots of drilling and implementing important concepts. Ample time is left at the end of class for sparring!
Work one-on-one with our experienced coaches.
Whether you’re a beginner looking to accelerate your training or an experienced artist prepping for a competition, private classes will help reinforce and round out your practice.
