Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Classes

BJJ (Brazilian Jiu Jitsu) is not just a form of self-defense, it’s a complete package of skills that boost self-confidence, improve health, and promote personal and public safety.  The goal is to control and ultimately submit a resisting opponent. It is generally easier to control an opponent on the ground than in a standing position so most of the techniques in BJJ center on the skill of taking an opponent to the ground and then wrestling for a dominant position. With the right training, a smaller person can subdue, control and ultimately submit a larger, stronger and more aggressive person using leverage, grip and position. Students gain a deeper understanding and working knowledge of how the human body works, learn about themselves and how to push your limits.

Our BJJ classes in NYC are designed to teach the complete arsenal of skills necessary to protect oneself. One of the side effects of training and mastering these skills is improved fitness, which is why so many of our clients sign up for these classes to knock out multiple goals with one stone: fitness, self-defense, and career development.

In fact, BJJ is an effective and preferred method of hand-to-hand, grappling combat for professionals who expect to experience resistance or physical violence as part of their job. Law enforcement officers and security professional can get comprehensive on-the-job training at our institute.

Our Brazilian Jiu Jitsu classes are no fuss, no flash, and no dawdle. The truth is that BJJ requires very little equipment; it’s mostly hand-to-hand. But, we do supply gloves and face masks for protection during intense training sessions. Our instructors have years of experience and we’re the only certified Krav Maga Institute in NYC.
