Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu

Instructor: John (JJ) Hewitt

BJJ, or the "gentle art," is the fastest growing martial art and combat sport in the world for good reason: it's functional, efficient, accessible to all, and really, really fun. The art specializes in ground fighting, focusing on positional dominance and using leverage and proper technique so that a smaller person can successfully defend or compete against a larger opponent.

This class focuses on the fundamental positions, postures and techniques of BJJ. We'll practice our skills against progressive resistance and aim to acquire a functional, effective skill set, establishing a solid foundation for continued practice.
