  • Adult Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Classes

    We offer gi classes under the traditional Gracie Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu art. This discipline covers all aspects of jiu-jitsu such as takedowns, throws, stand-up, self-defense, grappling and submissions. These tactics can be applied towards sport/tournament jiu-jitsu along with general self-defense.

What to Expect

Class

Each instructor will set up a core category for their curriculum for each month allowing students to be exposed to a wide spectrum of the art in that month. Our instructors are encouraged to bring and share their own style on the curriculum subject matter.

Our classes are typically broken up into the following activities:

  • Warm-up
  • Technique Instruction and Drilling Exercises
  • Sparring (rolling)

Note: To participate in our classes, students are required to read and sign a liability release form. You must be 18 years of age or older or have a parent/legal guardian complete the form on your behalf.

Warm-up

Some of our warm-up activities may include general cardio exercises to jiu-jitsu specialized activities which apply to the art. This not only helps your body get warmed-up prior to training, but our exercises also help improve flexibility, cardio, and help engrain fundamental moves into your game.

Technique and Instruction

The technique process typically begins with a fundamental breakdown of a scenario from both the offensive and defensive. Throughout this phase, we dive deeper into primary aspects such as position, technique, variations, and then introduce more advanced concepts eventually building towards position advancement and/or a submission.

Drilling & Training

During the technique and instruction process, students will partner with one another and drill these techniques exploring multiple sides and other potential options. The instructor will oversee, observe and assist students while they practice until the next step.

Sometimes we may conduct faster-paced drills or round-robin drills, where students will move around performing quick exercises based on a certain technique like, passing guard, and then cycle through the other students in the class.

Sparring (aka: Rolling)

Our sparring/rolling philosophy around technique, safety and health is strictly enforced.

Near the end of each class, there may be opportunity to spar/roll with fellow students and instructors. Instructors will participate and oversee this session providing guidance and on-hands experience. During your first classes, you can choose to participate or observe, but as you train, sparring/rolling is one of the best ways to improve your game and is required.

Prior to sparring/rolling, communicate your abilities and pace with your partner, and tap-out (physically or verbally) when necessary to avoid injury. Know when to stop a submission/attack and move-on to avoid injuring you or your partner.
