Learn the Gentle Art
Starting some time in 2021 once Covid-19 restrictions have been lifted, we will be offering an Introduction to Brazilian Jiu Jitsu class for adults. This 6 week program provides you with an introduction of the fundamental movements and concepts of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu to start you on your journey to learning this gentle art.
What You Will Learn
The program will acquaint members in the benefits of learning Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ). Benefits include increased flexibility, improved fitness, strength and general physical conditioning, stress release and improved concentration, increased self-confidence and most importantly it’s super fun! The 6 weeks will also focus on concepts that will aid individuals moving to a regular practice.
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu differs from other martial arts in that it uses the de-escalation of force to overcome physical conflict. Other disciplines focus on striking and rely on a person’s strength and speed to deliver damage, but speed and strength doesn’t matter when you’re on your back. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu relies on superior technique and leverage to overcome obstacles. Using your technique to control your opponent and allowing you to keep both yourself and your opponent safe. This is what makes BJJ a great martial art for everyone!
