Goals: to build a strong foundation; fitness
Our beginner class is carefully designed to introduce newcomers to Jiu-Jitsu in the most efficient way possible. Students learn the movement drills, positions, and techniques that make Jiu-Jitsu the most effective martial art. While the class is designed for beginning students, it's also perfect for experienced students looking to brush up on the basics.
Goal: to build strong Blue Belt skills
Our fundamental class is designed for those who have completed the beginner class and are ready to deepen their Jiu-Jitsu journey.
The class is faster paced and more challenging than the beginner class. Students begin to learn the more modern techniques of Jiu-Jitsu. Through live training, students learn to develop their game, as well as their athletic skills and attributes.
Goal: to build strong Purple Belt skills
Our intermediate class is open to all color belts. It is the foundation of our very successful competition team. Students learn the techniques they need to become a successful practitioner, including the most cutting edge techniques seen in the highest level competitions such as the IBJJF World Championship and ADCC.
Goal: to build real Black Belt skills
Our advance class is open to purple belts and up, as well as those invited by a professor. This class is designed to help students develop the strategies and understanding to be a black belt. Class structure varies in order to encourage students to embrace change and keep an open mind, two things imperative to being a black belt.
