When I first began training Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu in 2003 I was dropped into the deep end where everyone seemed to know what to do except for me. Back then, lessons weren’t very structured and it took me a long time before I felt I could grasp even the most basic of the basics. It was a steep learning curve that I probably didn’t help by making mistake after mistake, time and time again.
Fast forward to today and I believe that newcomers to BJJ can truly benefit with an introductory course on the fundamental techniques that form the basis of this fascinating yet highly technical martial art.
One of the difficulties many beginners face is trying to remember the sheer number of techniques that they have to learn. So during this 5 week introduction course, I will cover core concepts for each hour-long session. Concepts are easier to remember and can be applied to numerous different situations.
Some of the areas I will cover include: how to escape from seemingly terrible positions, how to control an opponent, how to use leverage for maximum force with minimal effort, how good posture can dramatically increase technique efficiency, how to spar. Plus we will also cover terminology, basic positions and submission techniques. Participants who complete all five sessions will have a better understanding of BJJ basics and will be able to participate in our regular classes.
