Brazilian Jiu Jitsu


with Kris Douglas

Calendar Sep 27, 2018 at 6 pm, runs for 8 weeks
This beginner course will be a simple introduction to the art of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, which is a self defense and martial art that is designed to take the fight to the ground and immobilize your opponent with certain holds and positions. Students will learn most of the basic positions in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu as well as learn to be comfortable fighting and grappling in the standing position and on the ground. Students will learn very basic throws, take downs, submission holds and positional escaping.

Students should wear comfortable gym clothes (no loose shorts unless you wear spandex shorts underneath) and bring water and a towel. Hygiene is a must and students should have short finger and toe nails, not wear any excessive jewelry and long hair must be tied back or braided. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a full contact grappling art so students should be prepared to have full contact with other students. Open to 15 years old+ with parent/permission.
