Our Jiu Jitsu Class teaches the basic objectives of the main positions in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Each position is taught from both the offensive and the defensive perspectives. Warm up consists of drills to improve the athlete’s physical ability, directly relevant to Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. After technical instruction, students are paired up to begin isolated positional sparring; this type of live sparring allows for beginners to directly practice the techniques they learned that day by starting from the exact position taught in class. This goes along with free sparring. This ensures that techniques are introduced in a systematic manner that allows for a progressively deeper understanding of the objectives and movements associated with each position. In addition, students are taught principals that make the process of learning Brazilian Jiu Jitsu more efficient and they receive regular individual critique to improve their performance.
Along Side our Gi class we also teach No-Gi Brazilian Jiu Jitsu also known as “Submission Wrestling”, applies all the same techniques and principles used in regular Gi Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Although small variations are often necessary to transition between Gi and No-Gi, it is still important to train Gi Jiu Jitsu, even if you wish to compete entirely in No-Gi. Nearly all of the ADCC Champions (the largest No-Gi Brazilian Jiu Jitsu tournament) train predominately Gi. Marcelo Garcia, believed to be one of the best current No-Gi competitors in the world, trains Gi five days a week and No-Gi once a week. At Fight Club Jiu Jitsu, we have one day dedicated to No-Gi instruction. We compete in both Gi and No-Gi competitions.
