As a martial art designed to allow the weaker to defeat the stronger, BJJ is a perfect fit for women who are interested in learning how to protect themselves … and who wouldn’t be, right?
We see it happen every day in the students who have already taken the challenge. We’ve watched the transformation happen for years. It’s been inspiring for us to be part of what inspires our students to make serious life changes.
A single step through the doors of the Jiu-Jitsu Foundation is all it takes to get started.
You’ll notice a very positive and friendly environment when you enter our school. Although martial arts can be intimidating for women, the fundamental class is definitely not intimidating. You will find a group of girls who are excited to be there and excited to have you there. The instructor will run several basic drills and after a few classes you will catch up with the rest of the group. Once you master the basics you will really enjoy the intensity of the class based on effective self-defense techniques and real life scenarios.
For students who have consistency and dedication, Jiu-Jitsu eventually becomes a life-style, and soon experience the benefits that the “gentle art” has to offer. Jiu Jitsu Foundation Programs are structured logically to keep students motivated to learn, practice and perform.
If you are new to Jiu-Jitsu, you will be required to do an introductory class. In this class you will learn privately from a qualified JJF instructor the basics positions and movements of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.
The Fundamental program is designed to teach the basic principles of Jiu-Jitsu for individuals like you. This program is composed of core fundamental Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu moves combined intelligently to safely optimize your learning.
While the Fundamentals Program focuses on the building blocks and basic principles of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, the Intermediate Program is built on high-level techniques and drills that start shaping the students game flow through the development of reflexes, speed and reaction time as well as transitions between one technique and another. After a few months in the Intermediate Program students typically experience a deeper involvement in JJF’s philosophy, a stronger bond with training partners as well as more discipline and commitment to healthy habits that keep them in good shape.
In the Advanced program, you will experience more live training and be exposed to more advanced moves. In this stage of your training experience, you will witness incredible improvement not only on your technique, but your conditioning as well. The Advanced Program is designed to expose the student to several different classes and a variety of training experiences, allowing you to develop a unique style of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, and to further your mastery of the art. As a result, in the Advanced Program, more techniques are taught, the pace of the class is faster and more exciting, the level of the training partners is higher, and last but not least, the focus on little details and timing is what will assist you to take your progress to the next level. During the Advanced program you will also have the option to study No-Gi Jiu jitsu or Submission Grappling. These techniques are similar but are practiced without the traditional uniform(or Gi).
