As our Academy continues to expand, it's important for us to offer our students as many training opportunities as possible. Over the last couple of months our student body has increased tremendously, and it's for this reason that beginning Wednesday, Sept. 2, we'll offer an additional class at 7:45 p.m.
This new class will focus entirely on the blue belt Gracie Jiu-Jitsu curriculum. It's the fundamentals...the foundation from which you'll continue to grow as a martial artist. It doesn't matter if you're a beginner, someone who is close to testing for blue belt, or a seasoned blue or purple belt -- all are welcome to attend.
We plan to have an enhanced emphasis on the details surrounding every technique on the blue belt list. Think of this class as a clinic. Learning to sustain and improve good positions might be a focus one class.
Becoming an escape artist from bad positions might be another. Then there's always the submission aspect to cover, but only after you've established a solid position. The basics of takedowns and self-defense are also essential.
We look forward to seeing you all on the mat for this new class. The Academy is headed in the right direction and it's all because of the commitment you have to yourself and to each other.
