Whereas many other martial arts mainly focus on kicking or punching, BJJ is primarily focused on ground fighting & the concept that a smaller person can successfully defend themselves against a bigger opponent by using leverage and weight distribution, taking the fight to the ground and using holds and submissions to defeat them.
The huge advantage of this strategy is that it can be learnt and used effectively by anyone and against anyone. If you are fighting a larger opponent it may be very risky to try to trade punches or kicks with them but with as little as 6 months training you will be able to develop the skills to take down and subdue a larger opponent.
The BJJ belt system is an important factor in a student’s development and provides an indication of their progress on the road to Black Belt. We hold regular BJJ grading days every three months where students are tested to find out if they are eligible to be promoted to the next rank and take the next step on their BJJ Journey.
