Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) is a martial art, combat sport, and a self -defense system that focuses on grappling and especially ground fighting. Jiu-jitsu is a grappling-based martial art whose central theme is the skill of controlling a resisting opponent in ways that force him to submit. Due to the fact that control is generally easier on the ground than in a standing position, much of the technique of Brazilian Jiu jitsu is centered round the skill of taking an opponent down to the ground and wrestling for dominant control positions from where the opponent can be rendered harmless.
Our Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu classes start out with a warm-up usually consisting of jogging, bear crawls, and shrimp drills on top of many other exercises. We then learn and go over one or two techniques that fit in with the position we have been drilling for the week. In order to create muscle memory, we then drill the move we have learned on our fellow training partners. Often times, once drilling is done, we then continue onto live sparring (rolling) in order to put our techniques into practice.
What to Wear
