Ground Classes

These classes focus on how to win the day on the ground. Use leverage, timing, and skill to topple bigger, stronger opponents and turn a bad situation to good. For this class we use Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (see below) techniques to build you a solid foundation in the art, as well as provide you an amazing workout.

Team classes are comprised of focused training drills on technique, theory, and principles. Each class begins with a dynamic warm-up, and incorporates application and flow drills to help you internalize the concepts you are learning. Cooperative positional sparring drills will ingrain the art into your mind and body. Study the art through cooperative partner work, drilling, and rolling, once ready. 

What is Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu?


Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, or BJJ, is a martial art for men and women that focuses on grappling and ground defense. Developed from Japanese Judo/Jiu-Jitsu, it migrated to Brazil where it evolved into the art it is today. Using leverage, and timing, it is masterful at defeating an opponent that has you pinned on the ground. 

Taking the martial arts scene by storm with it's effectiveness and incredible fitness results, it has become extremely popular throughout the world. BJJ teaches that a smaller, weaker person can successfully defend against a bigger, stronger attacker through technique, timing, and proper use of physics.
