Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Class
Brazilian Jui-Jitsu (BJJ) is a combination of martial arts, combat sport, and self-defense. BJJ focuses on grappling and more specifically ground fighting. It promotes the concept that a smaller, weaker person can successfully defend themselves against a bigger, stronger assailant using leverage and proper techniques to take the fight to the ground.
Unit 2’s Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu classes are run by BJJ Master Roberto Traven. Traven was one of the top Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu practitioners at the turn of the millennium. Earning his 6th degree black belt Carlos Gracie Jr., Traven dominated some of the most prestigious tournaments of his time such as the Brazilian Nationals, the Mundial, and the ADCC.
Unit 2’s Beginner Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Class teaches you the fundamentals of BJJ and how to effectively use the techniques learned. This class, which lasts about an hour, begins with a warm up, followed by instruction then drilling. Upon successful completion of this class you are ready to enter the Advanced BJJ class.
The Advanced BJJ class lasts from 1.5 to 2 hours. This class is perfect for professional MMA fighters, hobbyists, and students who wish to compete in BJJ. In this class you will learn advanced techniques, drill techniques, and roll (spar) all in a safe and team oriented atmosphere.
