BJJ Fundamentals

All Jiu-Jitsu training begins, and ends, with the fundamentals. As the old saying goes, you can’t learn to walk without learning how to crawl first. That holds true for almost anything you learn and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) is no different. That’s why we start all of our students, from teenagers to adults and even older students, with the Fundamentals class. Learning the basic building blocks will carry you through all levels of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, from the white belt beginner to the experienced black belt.

In our BJJ Fundamentals class, you’ll work with trained instructors to learn basic movements and self defense techniques, as well as, guard and control positions and core submissions that make up the fundamentals of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. It’s all covered and each student can take it at his or her pace. These fundamental movements and techniques illustrate how a smaller, weaker person can defend, and even defeat, a larger, stronger opponent or attacker.


Our intermediate program is designed to take our students from 6 months to blue belt. While the beginner classes focus on self defense and preparing the students to train live, the intermediate program starts to add more guards and techniques and expand the student’s knowledge of the techniques available. While we don’t expect students to be able to execute all or even most of the techniques shown in this class, it is important to get an idea of the techniques that are out there and what they will face.


Our Advanced training sessions are held in a less formal class structure so that they can more specifically address the individual needs of each student. These classes are designed to provide more advanced students an opportunity to train with opponents of the highest skill level. The newest and most innovative techniques will be studied and tested in an open and friendly yet COMPETITIVE environment.


Focused primarily on sparring, our Competition Program is designed to prepare students for competition. Students will get an overview of tournament scenarios and how to handle certain situations that will arise on the competition mat.
