Brazilian jiu-jitsu is a martial art, combat sport, and a self defense system that focuses on grappling and especially ground fighting. Carlos Gracieis known as the Founder and Creator of Modern Jiu Jitsu (Gracie Jiu Jitsu/Brazilian Jiu Jitsu). Brazilian jiu-jitsu eventually came to be its own art through the experimentations, practices, and adaptation from the Judo knowledge of Carlos and Hélio Gracie, who then passed their knowledge on to their extended family.
BJJ promotes the concept that a smaller, weaker person can successfully defend against a bigger, stronger assailant by using proper technique, leverage, and most notably, taking the fight to the ground, and then applying joint-locks and chokeholds to defeat the other person. BJJ training can be used for sport grappling tournaments (gi and no-gi) and mixed martial arts (MMA) competition or self-defense. Sparring (commonly referred to as "rolling") and live drilling play a major role in training, and a premium is placed on performance, especially in competition, in relation to progress and ascension through its ranking system.
Since its inception in 1882, its parent art of Judo was separated from older systems of Japanese ju-jitsu by an important difference that was passed on to Brazilian jiu-jitsu: it is not solely a martial art, it is also a sport; a method for promoting physical fitness and building character in young people; and, ultimately, a way (Do) of life.
Suitable over 14yo.
In this class you will learn the basics of jiu-jitsu and how to control your body. No sparring is included in these classes, instead we drill safely known techniques. It's also suitable for advanced practitioners if they need a more easy class in between hard trainings or as a "get back on the mat" class
In the intermediate classes we still teach some of the basics but we also give the students many new techniques. In the end of these classes we do sparring, mostly from the position of the day
In the advanced classes we teach more details, focus on competition techniques and do lots of sparring
Also during holidays and summertime we have less trainings so that our coaches can relax a little bit more. This time all levels train together. This is also a good opportunity for newcomers to get to know the oldies in the gym...
Drilling techniques. For everybody
