Fundamentals (GI & NoGi)
Our fundamental Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) class is designed for practitioners who have gone through a beginner course with us or elsewhere. The class includes technique drills, concepts, and positional mission-oriented sparring. These classes are essential for new practitioners/white belts and are often the foundation for more advanced training. Here's what you can expect from a fundamental BJJ class:
Warm-Up: Classes usually begin with a warm-up session with movement and mobility exercises. This helps prepare the body for the physical demands of training.
Technique Instruction: The core of a fundamental BJJ class is technique instruction. Instructors will break down fundamental BJJ moves, such as basic positions (guard, mount, side control), escapes, sweeps, and submissions (e.g., armbars, triangles). These techniques are taught step by step, focusing on proper body mechanics and execution.
Positional Drills: Some classes incorporate positional drills, where students start in a specific position (e.g., the bottom of side control) and work to improve their position or escape. This helps students understand the dynamics of different positions.
Q&A and Clarifications: Instructors often encourage students to ask questions and seek clarification during and after the class. This helps students understand the techniques better and address any doubts or concerns.
