Building solid foundations

Fundamental classes are designed for beginners with little or no experience and those looking to improve their overall Jiu Jitsu knowledge. In our fundamental classes you will learn the foundational moves, positions, and concepts of Jiu-Jitsu following the curriculum designed and tested by 12 time world champion, Caio Terra.

We believe that this class is very important and we encourage even our advanced students to review and drill these moves as often as they can. Remember fundamental means important not basic!


Evolving and exploring concepts

Advanced and All Level classes consists of drilling moves, learning advanced concepts and rolling (live training). Although it’s designed for people with more experience, we encourage everyone who is interested to do this class as well as the Fundamentals class. This class has significantly more training.

Advanced/All level classes will also help you improve your competition game with advanced techniques, concepts and strategies. Usually this class begins right after a fundamentals class, and students will start class with a light warm up, rolling and working techniques towards the end of class.
