If you’re looking for a Jiu Jitsu class to get you started, look no further than Lexington Jiu Jitsu. We have courses to take you from beginner to advanced.
Our programs are based on the teachings of Grandmaster Helio Gracie, the creator of Gracie Jiu Jitsu, a self-defense oriented martial art. For this reason, our classes are for adults serious about learning the art of Jiu Jitsu. Take a look at the programs we offer that form a comprehensive curriculum of Black Belt self-defense Jiu Jitsu.
Fundamentals 1 is where our students begin their Jiu Jitsu journey. It’s a class for everyone from stay-at-home moms to MMA fighters. In either case, you will learn the basic techniques taught in a specific sequence for optimal success. Including one of 40 different “street style” combat Jiu Jitsu lessons. For this reason, students will learn solutions to the most common street attacks. The skills included in this level one class include basic positioning, safe positional control, and proper submission techniques. As a result, no matter your age, gender, size, strength, or athletic ability, you can apply the techniques you learn in this class. You’ll acquire these techniques from Fundamentals 1 and be able to apply them in a real-life fight for your protection. Additionally, visitors are welcome to attend with a free three-class pass.
In Fundamentals 2, we’ll build on the skills you learned in Fundamentals 1. This second level is composed of more than 80 Gracie Jiu Jitsu lesson plans. These courses apply techniques with an emphasis on:
- Standing grappling
- Ground grappling with gloves
- Surprise attack defense
- Weapons defense
Furthermore, this class is not open to visitors. Fundamentals 2 is for enrolled students with three-stripe White Belt ranking and above only.
At Lexington Jiu Jitsu, we want our students to feel confident with the skills they learn in both Fundamentals level classes. For this reason, positional sparring gives you the opportunity to execute these techniques under pressure and without coaching from the sidelines. With this intention, sparring gives you the chance to put your skills to the test. Additionally, Positional Sparring is not open to visitors. This class is only open to enrolled students with one-stripe White Belt ranking and above.
Drilling is an important part of being competent and successful at Jiu Jitsu. In other words, you’ll have the opportunity to fine-tune your skills. Moreover, these skills include technical and movement drills, building your strength, and improving your technique.
We offer instructor development workshops to build the skills of Jiu Jitsu practitioners. To explain, this program is for students at or above one-stripe White Belt ranking. And these students also have an interest in becoming instructors or want to gain a deeper understanding of Jiu Jitsu.
