This class provides newer students with a nice introduction to the “gentle art”. Students will learn traditional techniques that every Jiu-Jitsu practitioner should know and essential techniques specific to our academy.

The fundamental classes are taught in a detailed progression. We will continue to reinforce and build on Monday’s lesson throughout the week. All three fundamental classes tie-in which allows more repititon.
