BRAZILIAN
JIU-JITSU

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, or BJJ as it is commonly known around the world, is a self-defence martial art that enables a smaller, weaker person to protect themselves against a much larger attacker using leverage and pressure. Made famous in America by the Gracie family through The Gracie Challenge and eventually the creation of Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), BJJ has grown to be more than just an effective unarmed fighting system. It helps young children deal with bullies and adults live a healthy lifestyle. BJJ classes are offered daily at FaMA under the tutelage of Black Belts Zoro MoreiraRobyn Goudy and Thiago Gaspary.

For people with little to no experience in martial arts, this Basic class focuses on the necessary techniques and principles of sport and self-defense Jiu-Jitsu in a fun and interactive way.

 

During each class, you will learn a series of techniques to defend yourself against an opponent through a series of control holds and submissions while utilizing leverage on the ground to overcome a bigger or stronger person.

Intermediate

This fun and challenging class teaches more advanced aspects where students get to do more free sparring. The main goal of this class is to turn students into mature practitioners that are able to link different parts of their game into a cohesive whole. This is when students start to develop their own particular style and begin to get used to exploring the techniques in a way that fits their needs.

No-Gi

A compliment to gi Jiu-Jitsu, No-Gi is another popular form of grappling where instead of wearing a gi, wears shorts and a rashguard.

 

FaMA’s BJJ No-Gi program also places an emphasis on wrestling takedowns and leg locks that are suitable for No-Gi competitions which are rising in popularity.
