Mixed Martial Arts Training
This class has been designed for intermediate level students who want to drill combos that include ground and stand up combos. You must have taken at least 5 Jiu-Jitsu, kickboxing and boxing classes to attend. Its goal is to train from two perspectives. A fight that starts on the ground and then goes to stand up and a fight that starts standing up and then finishes on the ground. Although it integrates Jiu-Jitsu, it combines basic level Jiu-Jitsu with the threat of strikes and kicks. It does not follow sport Jiu-Jitsu rules. This class is taught with a few formats, although it mostly couples students similar in size and has them drill out these elaborate fighting combinations.
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) is a martial art and combat sport that focuses on grappling and especially ground fighting with the goal of gaining a dominant position and using joint-locks and chokeholds to force an opponent to submit or be knocked out depending on what submission method is used. The art was based on early 20th century Kodokan Judo which was itself then a recently-developed system (founded in 1882), based on multiple schools (or Ryu) of Japanese Jujutsu.
It promotes the principle that a smaller, weaker person using leverage and proper technique can successfully defend against a bigger, stronger assailant. It primarily uses Judo takedowns to gain the dominant position. BJJ can be trained for self defense, sport grappling tournaments (gi and no-gi) and mixed martial arts (MMA) competition. Sparring (commonly referred to as 'rolling') and live drilling play a major role in training, and a premium is placed on performance, especially in competition.
