FUNDAMENTAL BRAZILIAN JIU-JITSU
This class is created for the person that has no experience in BJJ. It teaches the new student how to safely apply these techniques on others and in turn have them applied safely on them. It covers all the basic techniques and positions that a beginner must learn in order for them to move on to the advanced program. Upon completion of this program the student will now appreciate one of the central tenets or philosophies of BJJ which is that a smaller and weaker opponent, through the proper use of leverage and technique, can subdue a larger and stronger adversary. Classes require the use of an approved Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu uniform for attendance.

ADVANCED BRAZILIAN JIU-JITSU
This takes the foundation, which was formed in the fundamental program, and builds upon it by teaching students more advanced techniques, setups and positions. The advanced classes allows the student to take their BJJ to higher levels by structuring the class to include more live training time in each individual class. Technical instruction is still the central component to the learning process but as a student progresses he or she will now require more “mat time” to refine their movements putting them on the path to becoming a black belt. Classes require the use of an approved Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu uniform for attendance.
In order to qualify for our MMA/Competition program a student must show proficiency in both our Grappling and Striking programs. After showing proficiency in these areas and approval of the head instructor the student now qualifies for access to a higher intensity level of sparring and training. This elevated intensity is what the student needs if he or she is going to be a successful competitor. Over the years our coaches have developed relationships with other Academies and gyms across the NY/NJ area, that also have students with the similar goals, which are willing to have our students spar and train with. In addition to all this we are able to utilize our relationships with various promoters to get you in your first amateur MMA fight or high level grappling tournament.
