What is Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu?
Brazilian Jiu-jitsu is a leverage-based self-defense art that helps defenders to survive, escape, and gain dominant positioning to escape the situation. If practiced correctly, a much smaller individual can defend against a much larger opponent using a variety of joint locks and chokes to finish the fight. Many jiu-jitsu practitioners compete in tournaments as well as mixed martial arts competitions.
There are two types of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Training Sessions at Fluid Martial Arts:
These classes are run in 90 minute increments and include training in both the full Kimono/Gi as well as No-Gi. Classes include a 15 minute warm-up, 45 minutes of detailed instruction and drilling, and 30 minutes of sparring / rolling.
These sessions are run in 120 minute increments. This provides students with an opportunity to spar/roll with each other to practice the techniques that they have learned in a live setting. Open Mat times are open to members of Fluid Martial Arts Academy as well as any member of the Flavio Behring Jiu-Jitsu USA organization.
