How BJJ fits into our grappling programs and curriculum

Brazilian jiu-jitsu develops a sense for proper positioning and technique over strength. The CSW mixed martial art classes provide the seamless transitioning between striking, clinching and a rapid-fire ground game. While Kali-Silat provides the principles and tactics when the situation requires a more serious response than just a “submission.”

Classes are drill based to promote ease of motion and proper technique.

Other benefits of these classes include:  

  • Classes are fun and appropriate for people of all levels.
  • A great workout that is totally different than kickboxing.
  • One of the few classes where students can “compete” or ‘spar’ with a low risk of injury.

What makes BJJ different

An outstanding aspect of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is that, unlike many other martial arts, you can practice at 100% speed and power. This means you don’t have to “pull punches”, so to speak. That might sound like a scary proposition  No worries, as effective as Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is, it is still a very gentle art. You can practice all day long and not suffer injuries.

Built in goal setting keeps you interested and moving forward

Unlike western wrestling where the objective is to “pin” your opponent or gain points. The goal of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is to gain positional advantage and apply a joint lock or choke to force your opponent into submission.

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu endorses the concept that a smaller and weaker person using leverage and good technique can defend themselves. Even if they are up against a larger, stronger opponent on the ground.

Learning the self-defense aspects of Brazilian Jiu-jitsu is an absolute necessity. Most people stick with it because it is just plain fun!
