Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu builds self-esteem, core strength, coordination, flexibility and balance. Jiu-Jitsu means “smooth martial art” and is a non-striking martial art. Students will learn basic movements, posture, guard, half-guard, sweeps, chokes, arm bars and other submissions.

Classes will include physical training, warm-ups and exercises, games, supervised rolling, and cover the history, theory and rules of the sport. BJJ etiquette will be taught, as well as the belt system.

Great for high-school wrestlers to stay in shape and sharpen their technique.
No prior wrestling or BJJ or any martial art experience is required.

Repetition is the key to mastering the movements and techniques of Jiu-Jitsu, and as students progress through their weekly instruction, their techniques will become further refined and developed.
