Our BJJ 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.

How to progress your skills
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!
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.
