Fundamentals/Beginner Program

The focal point of the beginner class is entirely on technique. The class focuses on learning and applying fundamental techniques of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Students practice various techniques using the traditional Gi, also know as a kimono. Students learn and practice submissions, escapes, positioning and self defense. The fundamentals class is directed not only for the beginner but also for the more advanced students to sharpen basic techniques. When a student joins the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu program, he/she is monitored by the instructors and is informed when ready to advance. We require this because there are core techniques that are essential to learn before progress in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is possible. These are the techniques that are emphasized in the beginner classes.
