Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is considered by many to be one of the most effective martial arts that can be used for self-defense in one-on-one encounters. Known more commonly by it’s abbreviated term BJJ, it has soared in popularity since it’s effectiveness was showcased in the very first Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) competition 27 years ago.
Our program aims to help you develop the skills you need to confidently protect yourself in a one-on-one confrontation.
Keep in mind that Jiu Jitsu, in general, is an exclusively ground-based martial art. We recommend fleeing rather than engaging if more than one opponent is present. Our Brazilian Jui Jitsu classes will provide you the building blocks you need for a stable foundation. Each session also provides an opportunity to spar, which will give you an opportunity to put what you have learned into action in a simulated fight. It provides the experience to see how it feels with an active opponent as opposed to someone being a training dummy for the BJJ drills.
What can you expect?
Vicente Cavalcante has kindly sent one of his highest ranking students to instruct at TFC Brisbane as head trainer. With Ben Johnston helping alongside, Logan BJJ students receive the very best instruction. No stone is left unturned to ensure that the TFC family is well cared for. We dedicate ourselves to developing your understanding of BJJ and how to use it to complement a striker’s skillset.
What types of classes do we offer?
There are two types of classes we offer, gi and no-gi. A gi is simply the uniform that a BJJ practitioner wears. In a gi session, a student wears their uniform, and in a no-gi session, they are expected to come in a rashguard and shorts or spats.
What level do I need to be to join?
All of our sessions cater to beginners. We do our best to ensure that each and every student feels comfortable and able to enjoy the process of learning one of the world’s most effective martial arts.
What should you wear?
A t-shirt and shorts or skins will do just fine. You don’t want to wear anything that can catch, and likely tear. That’s probably the most important rule of thumb when deciding what to wear on your first day. Quality Jiu Jitsu apparel is available in our shop once you decide you want to join our sessions on a regular basis.
