Brazilain jiu-jitsu is a martial art and combat sport that focuses on grappling. BJJ teaches a smaller person how to defend him/herself against a larger stronger adversary by using leverage and proper technique. Taking the fight to the ground then allows you to apply joint-locks and chokeholds to defeat the opponent. BJJ training can be used for sport grappling tournaments (gi and no-Gi) and mixed martial arts (MMA) competition or self defense
Our youth BJJ program is the best in the area. All classes are conducted in a fun and safe environment. Bullying is escalating more and more in schools around the country. BJJ can help your child handle these types of situations through ongoing training that will simulate situations they may encounter with bullies. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu teaches your child to defend themselves or others if a bully situation is encountered. Standing up to a bully does not mean your child must hurt the bully but try to do the right thing to defuse the situation.
At Canton Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu we have a world class program that focuses on training bjj with the gi (uniform) and without the gi for both sport and self-defense. Wrestling and judo are also supplemented extensively to ensure that all students are capable of taking a person to the ground since BJJ specializes in fighting on the ground. Classes consist of a warm-up followed by a series of techniques being taught and live training at the end of class. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a great way to get in shape while learning a martial art that is definitely proven to be effective in a self-defense situation.
Our wrestling program is designed to introduce people to wrestling concepts and moves. The class is geared towards novice and beginner wrestlers, but experienced wrestlers are highly encouraged to attend to help tighten habits and techniques. The techniques taught cover many things from takedowns, defense, and mat wrestling. Private Lessons are also available upon request.
