BRAZILIAN JIU JITSU
WHAT IS BJJ?
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) is a martial art style with an emphasis on ground fighting techniques and submission holds. It is an adaptation of Judo that has evolved over many years to become a sport in its own right.
BJJ involves taking the fight to the ground and then applying chokeholds and joint locks. It is widely considered the most efficient martial art as it promotes the concept that proper technique and leverage is more important than strength. This makes BJJ a fantastic method of self-defence.
In our sessions you will perform technique drills with a partner, practice positional sparring (where only a certain techniques are performed) and full sparring (where use of any technique can be used to defeat your opponent). Physical conditioning is also involved in sessions.
At FIFTY3DEGREES we are a friendly bunch anyway, but BJJ is notorious for having a strong sense of comraderie. This makes classes a very social affair and it is a great way to make new friends.
