Students can train to enter sports grappling tournaments, or just train for physical fitness and self defense purposes. Students participate in sparring and rolling according to their skill level and training objectives. Technical drilling, rolling, and sparring are an important part of training at TSBJJ. All students must master the technical aspects of BJJ at their level prior to advancing to the next level of training.
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a martial art that teaches students to defend themselves using take downs, leverage, proper posture, joint locks, chokes, and strikes. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, although obviously similar in many respects to Japanese Jiu Jitsu, differs in some fundamental ways. Jiu-Jitsu was initially developed by the samurai of feudal Japan as a method of defeating an armored opponent. Punching and kicking an armored opponent is not very effective, so the samurai would use Jiu-Jitsu to defeat his enemy.In 1914 Mitsuyo Maeda brought Jiu-Jitsu to Brazil. In 1916 Carlos Gracie started training with Maeda and it was the Gracie family that modified and created the system of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu that we practice today.
MIXED MARTIAL ARTS (MMA)
MMA is a contact combat sport using a wide variety of fighting techniques. TSBJJ teaches a mixture of martial arts traditions. We specialize in striking and Brazilian Jujitsu grappling techniques. Students practice both striking and grappling techniques while standing and on the ground. Because students and instructors share skills from other martial arts systems, TSBJJ is quickly becoming the premiere training center for advanced and beginner students. Students with previous martial arts experience are encouraged to practice what they have learned previously while incorporating what they learn at TSBJJ
