Jiu-Jitsu is founded on the concept that a smaller, weaker person can successfully defend themselves against a bigger, stronger, or heavier opponent by using technique, leverage, and most notably, taking the fight to the ground to applying joint locks and incapacity holds to defeat the opponent. Jiu-Jitsu can be used for sport grappling tournaments and in self-defense situations. Sparring, commonly referred to as “rolling” within the Jiu-jitsu community, and live drilling play a major role in training. Jiu-Jitsu is first and foremost considered a martial art, then a sport. It is a means for promoting physical fitness and building character, and is a way of life for many practitioners.
Jiu-jitsu is now practiced by every professional mixed martial artist and is the primary form of Self-Defense taught to the military, and many law enforcement organizations around the world.
Jiu-Jitsu can be used for street self-defense (anti-bullying, rape prevention, law enforcement) and sport grappling tournaments. The philosophy behind Jiu-Jitsu’s success is based in the following strategy:
– Close the distance and clinch;
– Take the attacker/opponent to the ground;
– Establish a safe and dominant position;
– Control the attacker until help arrives or the altercation is finished by;
– The application of incapacitating holds or joint locks.
Each adult class has:
- A warm up
- A technical breakdown of the essential movements of Jiu-Jitsu
- Technique demonstration and drilling
- Live rolling or sparring to practice techniques in real time
- Stretching and conditioning
Every class is taught by 4 time world champion Professor Fredson Paixao or one of his top instructors or coaches. Classes are kept small in number to ensure each student gets the personal attention needed to progress in this detailed art.
