NO GI (SUBMISSION GRAPPLING) CLASS:

THIS CLASS IS BASED ON TECHNIQUES OF TRADITIONAL GI BRAZILIAN JIU JITSU, AND ADJUSTMENTS ARE MADE TO COMPENSATE FOR THE LACK OF A UNIFORM TO HOLD ON TO. THE FUNDAMENTAL PRINCIPLES REMAIN THE SAME. IN SUBMISSION GRAPPLING, STUDENTS LEARN AN ENTIRELY NEW SET OF GRIPS. THE WRISTS, BACK OF THE NECK, ANKLE, KNEE AND ELBOW GRIPS ARE ALL DIFFERENT THEN TRADITIONAL GI. STUDENTS LEARN TAKEDOWNS, POSITIONS, TRANSITIONS, ESCAPES, AND REVERSALS. METHODS ON HOW TO APPLY AND DEFEND AGAINST JOINT LOckS, CHOKES AND OTHER SUBMISSIONS HOLDS ARE ALSO COVERED. THE CURRICULUM FOCUSES ON THE FIGHTING IN A CLINCH AND ON THE GROUND. THE SUBMISSION GRAPPLING PROGRAM HELPS STUDENTS DEVELOP SKILLS THAT ARE USEFUL IN REAL SELF DEFENSE SITUATIONS AS WELL AS IN THE SPORTING ENVIRONMENT. THIS GIVES STUDENTS A NEW DIMENSION TO THEIR EXISTING SKILL SET. THE CLASS MAY BE TRAINED SOLELY OR IN CONJUNCTION WITH TRADITIONAL BRAZILIAN JIU JITSU CLASSES. WE BELIEVE THAT IT IS IMPORTANT FOR STUDENTS TO UNDERSTAND BOTH ASPECTS, CONSIDERING MOST TOURNAMENTS OFFER BOTH GI AND NO GI DIVISIONS. NO GI TRAINING MAKES FOR A FASTER AND MORE DYNAMIC STYLE OF FIGHTING. THE NO GI PROGRAM IS AN IDEAL FIT FOR EVERYONE LOOKING TO BECOME A MORE COMPLETE practitioner or FIGHTER, AND EVEN THOSE INTERESTED IN A GREAT FITNESS PROGRAM.
