This is our fundamentals martial arts class, open to all students. In this class you will learn the underlying principles that govern every movement, position, transition and technique in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.
The material covered will familiarize you with the basic positions: the open and closed guard, the side mount, the knee ride, the mount, and the back. You will learn how to achieve, control and transition between these positions using the building block movements of BJJ that are frequently neglected or taught incorrectly. You will learn the skills of guard retention, sweeping, sweep recovery, and guard passing. Although you will find many beginners in this martial arts class, all of our ranked students attend it as well, both to help our new students in their journey, and to maintain sharpness with the essential concepts and movements that create true skill in grappling.
