BRAZILIAN JIU-JITSU

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) is a martial art that focuses on grappling and ground fighting as a self defense. Jiu-Jitsu has recently become more popular and is noted to be one of the fastest growing MMA sports in the United States. The concept of BJJ is that smaller people who are not as strong can defend themselves against a larger more stronger opponent. Through the use of skillful leveraging techniques and effective groundwork, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu martial artists are able to manipulate, subdue, and control their opponent.

 

Our kids classes focus on not only on self-defense skills but also respect, hard work, dedication and earning good grades. Professor Derrick teaches them about how to deal with peer pressure and bullying. If you’re seeking a program that provides a comfortable and safe environment for your child we will be more than happy to welcome you to our BJJ family.

 

Our instructor professor Derrick Clark teaches traditional Brazilian jujitsu techniques. Students meet at class times for formalized instruction of techniques. Each class is about 90 minutes and includes sparring after techniques. All levels participate in each class. This helps new students get acclimated to jujitsu culture and to integrate fully at their own pace. Participants wear a Gi. A loaner gi can be provided to trialing students to wear over shorts and a T-shirt.
