The movements and techniques can sometimes be challenging because you’ve got to move your own weight around on the ground, as well as the weight of another person. We have our students practice specially-designed drills to help you with these movements, and many of them are cardio-intensive.

Fitness training is an integral part of every class. In order to learn a technique properly, you must test it out for yourself, so free-rolling (sparring) is an important part of your development in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. This requires the right level of conditioning, and we prepare you for that with our cardio-intensive drills and conditioning specific exercises.

Get realistic training in a safe environment.

It’s important that you understand how and why the techniques you learn work, and that you know they will work in a real self-defense situation. Our Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu classes give you a hands-on approach to training, and allow you to test out the techniques. We don’t want you to wait until you’ve got to use it to find out whether it works or not. That’s why we spar/free-roll every day in our Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu program.
