What to Expect
Adult Class Structure
Warm-up movements consist of the cornerstone movements for Jiu Jitsu; hip escapes, penetration steps, running and shuffling, drilling of common movements, and physical conditioning. The warm-up portion of the class is essential for promoting fitness and for students to get used to moving in a completely new way.
Instruction comes after the warm-up. The instructor will typically show between two and three new techniques per class, with time in between demonstration for students to practice applying the technique with a partner and troubleshooting. Students are encouraged to engage with the instructor in this section: asking questions when they are unclear, or even requesting to review specific curriculum. We strive for a fun and open environment.
Rolling is the live-sparring portion of the class. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a grappling art, which means there is no hitting each other, so sparring can be safely practiced day in and day out. Students are encouraged to ease in to sparring in a way that makes sense for them. If you want to sit out and just watch for a few days, that's okay.
