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.
It is worth remembering that BJJ is an exclusively ground-based martial art, therefore we do not suggest using it in replacement for fleeing a situation if more than one opponent is present. You will be provided with the building blocks that you need to build a stable foundation, our sessions also provide an opportunity to spar (a simulated fight scenario). This is when you can put what you have learned into action to see how it feels with an ‘active’ opponent as opposed to someone letting you try a technique on them during the technique drill portion of your BJJ lesson.
What can you expect?
Vicente Cavalcante has kindly sent one of his highest ranking students to instruct as head trainer with Ben Johnston helping alongside, allowing the students at Logan BJJ to receive the very best instruction. No stone has been left unturned to ensure that the TFC family are well-looked after, developing a solid understanding of BJJ and how it can be used to compliment a striker’s skillset harmoniously.
What types of classes do we offer?
There are two types of sessions 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 BJJ apparel is available in our shop once you decide you want to join our sessions on a regular basis.
