Jiu Jitsu

Jiu-Jitsu emphasizes ground fighting techniques and submission holds involving joint locks and choke holds. The premise is that most of the advantage of a larger, stronger opponent comes from superior reach and more powerful strikes, both of which are largely negated if wrestling on the ground; and if either fighter wants the fight to go to the ground, it will.

Once the opponent is on the ground, a number of maneuvers (and counter-maneuvers) are available to manipulate the opponent into suitable position for the application of a submission hold. This system of maneuvering and manipulation can be likened to a form of kinetic chess when contested between two experienced practitioners. A submission hold is the equivalent of checkmate.

GI & No-GI classes are offered.  Completion of beginner classes or assessment of skills by Jeremy is necessary to participate in the Advanced classes.
