One of UFC GYM’s most unique offerings is our Brazilian Jiu-jitsu program. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, or BJJ, is very popular among our members because not only does it provide a full-body workout, but builds character and mind power as well. UFC GYM’s BJJ program allows you take what you learn on the mat and apply it to your everyday life. If you’re looking for a new workout that can improve your overall physical AND mental well-being, UFC GYM’s BJJ is for you. Here are a few things you can expect in a UFC GYM Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu class:
1. Full Body Warm Up
In Jiu-Jitsu, respect is expected as soon as you step onto the mat. Students come into the class to line up and bow to the instructor. Students will then begin a full body warm up, followed by a stretch. A proper warm-up helps to prevent injury.
2. Technique Driven
Students will learn a series of techniques and/or drills depending on the level of the class. We offer beginner, intermediate, and advanced training. Many of our facilities have an all-women’s BJJ class/program as well. Students will learn all of the fundamental techniques through our BJJ curriculum, and will move to more advanced techniques as they progress. Depending on the level of the student, we have live training in a safe controlled environment for students to practice techniques on a resisting opponent. In the youth classes, we also have an option to play a game.
3. Take Away Thoughts
At the end of every class we do a cool down with a class message. If it is a Gi class this is the time to stripe students belts once the instructor feels a student is ready. Students will then line up and bow out of class.
4. Experienced Coaches
Many of our coaches are black belts with decades of experience in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Our instructors know what it takes for our students to reach their goals in the sport.
5. Room for Growth
Students who regularly partake in the Gi classes will have the opportunity to move up in rank. We follow the International Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Federation standards in our program. We have a full belt promotions system where UFC GYM students have the opportunity to move up in belt rank, from white all the way up to black belt.
6. Dedicated Community
The BJJ community is paramount to what makes our program so successful. It is the relationship between instructors and students, and students with other students that keep the atmosphere engaging and fun. By the nature of the martial art, we have a special bond and trust with our peers. We trust our coaches and students with potentially dangerous moves, knowing they will be done safely and correctly. This interaction, with the growth of the students' BJJ skills mentally and physically, keep our members consistently in the gym trying to get to the next level. Everyone who partakes in BJJ is a part of a team and large family inside the UFC GYM community that stretches to our clubs all around the world.
