At Bow Valley Jiu Jitsu we run beginner friendly classes. The techniques shown are for both Gi and Nogi. The fundamental classes are run so that anyone new to Jiu Jitsu can learn the basic movements of our art while also providing more advanced movements for students that are looking for more of a challenge.
Along with out fundamental classes we do run an advanced class that is invite only. This class is for students that have shown solid technique and understanding of base movements that make up the foundation of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Advanced class has some requirements that need to be met before attending, please talk with an instructor to find out more.
The primary focus of BJJ is ground fighting but we do teach takedowns. Teaching takedowns is important for both self defence and sport Jiu Jitsu as it will allow you to impose your skill and technique to a greater extent. A side benefit to teaching take downs is in learning the ability to know how to safely fall and land properly so that the impact is minimized.
After adult class we go straight into live rolling (sparring). Rolling allows the practitioner to practise the techniques while also learning to deal with pressure and thrive in it in a safe environment. At Bow Valley Jiu Jitsu we always strive to maintain a safe environment in which to train. This is achieved through a club atmosphere in which we teach that the most important person in the club is your partner, because without them you would not be able to train.
