These classes are the most important we offer. Our Fundamentals curriculum covers the basic movements you’ll need to be successful in our other classes, and other Jiu Jitsu classes you may visit around the world. You’ll learn escapes, takedowns, attacks, and defenses, and begin to understand how Jiu Jitsu functions. During this 6-month program, you’ll gain coordination and stamina, and begin to build mental and physical armor against difficulties.
This class begins with a calisthenic warm-up that uses the basic movements of Jiu Jitsu, including rolling, hip escapes, and break falls. Next, we cover the techniques of the week; usually a takedown, a sweep or position reversal, a pass, and a submission. Finally, we’ll end the class with some situational drills, so you can test your skills. Our curriculum is carefully crafted to be sure all your bases are covered. All of our fundamentals classes cover the same material throughout the week, so you’ll get enough time to practice each skill.
We separate our beginners to give them the attention and opportunities they need to build a safe foundation. Our fundamentals students are comfortable trying movements for the first time, asking questions, and making the inevitable mistakes they will make on the way to competency. Graduation from this class is a true accomplishment that will leave you with pride, self-confidence, and the skills you need to start participating in our advanced classes.
