Adult Jiu Jitsu
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) has gained a lot of attention in recent years, and it’s pretty obvious why. BJJ stands apart from other martial arts due to its focus on grappling, rather than the kicking and punching that characterize disciplines such as Karate and Taekwondo. BJJ is known to improve fitness levels, prepare its practitioners for situations requiring self-defense, and relieve stress.
Bueno Jiu Jitsu Adult's Programs
Traditional Gi-Mixed Levels
Skills Training, Self-Defense, Rolling (Sparring)
Our core class incorporates beginners as well as our more seasoned athletes. Everyone bows in and does warm-ups together, but then splits to different mats for different levels of skills training. We like combining our training so that everyone knows and feels like they are a part of the Bueno Family!
*New students may borrow a Gi (kimono) from the gym for their first few classes if they do not already have one. In this class, we teach techniques with the highest percentage of success and delve into the details that allow you to execute them even better. *All belts welcome!
Made for the real world, BJJ is a form of self-defense that every person should master. BJJ focuses on ground-level altercations – utilizing holds, throws, blows, and a variety of submission techniques. This makes Jiu Jitsu ideal when learning how to take on an opponent who may be larger than you, without necessarily having to hurt them.
While many martial art disciplines incorporate grappling here and there, when it comes to BJJ, grappling is at the core of all of your training. Not familiar with grappling? Here’s what you need to know – instead of utilizing weapons or striking, grappling is all about getting your opponent to concede through physical dominance. The rules and techniques of grappling vary depending on whether one is practicing Gi or No-Gi Jiu Jitsu, as well as whether it’s being done in a sport or self-defense style. When grappling in BJJ, you’ll spend the majority of your time fighting from the ground and will likely utilize many different types of chokes.
At Bueno Jiu Jitsu, self-defense and martial arts training go hand in hand. Though the application of self-defense is at the core of every class we teach, our No-Gi Jiu Jitsu course prepares students like no other. No-Gi Jiu Jitsu is unique because it ditches the martial arts uniform we’ve all become accustomed to and replaces it with shorts and a rash guard. The goal of this isn’t to keep students comfortable – it’s all about mimicking real-life altercations. While everyone has a different take, we feel that the grappling of No-Gi Jiu Jitsu is more realistic than any other form of martial arts. Without the grip of a kimono, the extra time to decide your next mood or as many complex techniques, you’re gaining an experience that is way more similar to any altercation you may be confronted with outside of our gym.
