All Levels Class and Advanced:

  • Explore leg grabs in both classes, enhancing proficiency in stand-up techniques. Ground techniques will vary based on the professor’s choice, ensuring a well-rounded training experience for all students.

🔍 Word of the Week: Integrity

Integrity is the bedrock of Jiu-Jitsu, encompassing principles of honesty, respect, and fairness both on and off the mats. In Jiu-Jitsu, integrity means adhering to the rules, respecting training partners, and displaying sportsmanship at all times.

Finish each class with specific training drills to reinforce newly learned skills!

Get ready for an action-packed week of learning, growth, and camaraderie on the mats! See you all there! 💪🔥
