Martial Arts – Jiu Jitzu
The Fraser Rec Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu program is a 16-week program of Jiu-Jitsu fundamentals, a great place to learn the basics. Our professors are Brazilian Black Belts and have extensive coaching experience, are certified and have won numerous tournaments at all levels of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Jiu-jitsu is one of two martial arts that are defensive (the other being Aikido). There is no striking and the main goal in jiu-jitsu is to level the field by taking the opponent to the ground to get a submission. Brazilian jiu-jitsu is one of the most effective self-defense martial arts, where real life self-defense situations are explored at the beginning of every class. As a sport, jiu-jitsu has a point system for certain moves and advancements as you progress towards a submission. Jiu-Jitsu is one of the fastest growing martial arts in the world. The uniform fee is an additional $100 for your Gi and Rash Guard if you do not already own one.
