Be excited that you are about to learn one of the most effective and practical martial arts in existence with some of the best and most experienced BJJ practitioners in the world.
Our beginner Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu program (white belt) teaches you the basics of BJJ. You'll learn the concepts of posture and base, how to grip properly, how to shrimp and bridge, how to land properly, basic guard passes and a few basic submissions like a choke, an arm bar and a triangle. You'll also learn how to defend against them. You'll do lots and lots of drill repetition until you get comfortable with these BJJ basics.
In time, you'll have found regular drilling partners whom you trust that you'll be able to work with to fine tune your technique. Constant practice is how to move from surviving to thriving in BJJ.
