  • Utilize the opponents strength to your advantage
  • Attack the opponents weakness


Jiu Jitsu Focus Areas for Class

Ukemi – The art of falling

  • Falls – Learning how to fall properly is extremely important and will help prevent injury during the throws which are performed.  When done properly, a breakfall can reduce the impact of hitting the ground by up to 80%.
  • Rolls – When falls cannot be used, we teach forward and back rolls to help while moving to the ground.   Rolls can be either done on the ground or can be aerial.

Nage-waza – Throwing techniques

  • Tachi Waza or Standing Throws – These throws are performed on an uke or attacker from the standing position.
  • Sutemi Waza or Sacraficing Throws – Throws of this nature require the tori or the person throwing sacrafice their posture to bring the uke to the ground.

Kime-no-Kata – Forms of self defense

  • The katas consist of a punch, kick, grab, or lock, which require the tori to escape and finish with a submission

Randori – Grappling and ground work

  • Whether starting from stand up, the clench, or on the ground, we put our Jiu Jitsu to the test through Randori.  Students apply the lessons and information given to them by the instructors to wrestle or grapple with another opponent until a conclusion or a tap has happened.
