What is Jiu-Jitsu?

It is one of the most respected and effective grappling arts in the world and the techniques learned can easily defeat a larger opponent or attacker. Jiu Jitsu also focuses on how to avoid confrontations and how to better handle them when they are unavoidable. Skill in the grappling range is absolutely necessary to complete your martial arts training in order to truly be able defend yourself. Training starts with students learning positions, escapes, and flowing from one position to another. Submissions are then introduced in a very safe training environment. Students will learn various arm locks, chokes (adults only), leg / knee locks, and shoulder locks.
