The primary goal for this class is to learn self-defense, but you may notice that you will reach other goals as you progress in this class. Jiu-jitsu is an amazing sport because it will help you achieve many fitness and life goals. As you progress in class, you will realize that the moves that look difficult, really aren’t. You will also notice that your mobility and flexibility will improve all while getting healthier. All of this will result in building up your confidence not just on the mats, but off the mats as well. We have lots of fun on and off the mats.
The class will consist of a warm-up with drills that will help with cardio, conditioning, flexibility, and self-defense. After the warm-ups, the coach will show one technique and everybody will practice (drill) for 5 minutes. Once the students are comfortable with the basic moves, we will close class with a live grappling session to incorporate all the moves learned. We will meet twice a week, every Tuesday and Thursday from 5:00 – 6:00pm in the War Room. This class is held at the same time as the Junior’s class, so you can drop off your kids at their class and you can train too!
