Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is one of the fastest growing and is quickly becoming one of the most popular Martial Arts in the world. This system focuses on grappling and ground self defense.

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu contains a balanced combination of cardiovascular and resistance training that is great for children. Northwest Jiu Jitsu academy emphasizes a safe and progressive system taught by highly trained professionals. We keep the training fun and engaging by integrating a child's natural need to play. As children become proficient in the art their strength, flexibility and balance improves—and success follows. With success on the mat comes improved self-esteem and confidence in life.

We award up to 10 colored belts to kids; white belt through to green belt. Each color has four stripes (or stages of training). Stripes are awarded for participation in 12 classes. After the 4th stripe and 12 additional classes, the students are then tested on their knowledge and awarded a new belt.

 

BRAZILIAN JIU JITSU

TEENS AND ADULT CLASSES, 12 +
TUES / THURS – 7:30 – 8:45 PM

The focus of the first half of the class is entirely on techniques for self-defense and sport. The second half of the class is reserved for sparring drills and live rounds. The class focuses on learning and applying fundamental techniques of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu from our structured 48- class curriculum. Students practice various techniques using a traditional Gi, also known as a Kimono. Students learn and practice submissions, escapes, positioning and self-defense. The classes are directed not only for the beginner but also for the more advanced students to learn new techniques and sharpen basic techniques.

When a student joins the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu program, he/she is monitored by the instructors and is informed when he or she is ready to advance and to practice live drilling-this is required because of the amount of core techniques that are essential to learn before progress in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is possible. As such, the training and progress is individualized and tailored to the student’s abilities.
