What Is Brazilian Jiu Jitsu?

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a grappling sport that utilized basic principles of physics, such as leverage, to allow someone of smaller or weaker stature to defeat larger and stronger opponents. BJJ is strategic and adaptable to many environments making it part of a complete self defense training system. In addition to self defense, BJJ offers a very robust sport tournament scene.

Training and Classes

Beginner Class

Our beginners’ program is designed to introduce students to the mental and physical techniques used in combat sports. Students in the beginners’ program are immersed in the fundamentals of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu while improving their fitness and building confidence. Our instruction methods include detailed technique reviews and drills, which are simple enough for inexperienced practitioners to quickly grasp and perform.

Advanced Class

The advanced Brazilian Jiu Jitsu classes at Mushin Training Center provide an in-depth exposure to cutting-edge BJJ techniques. Students are also introduced to BJJ competition rules and strategies, and instruction in the advanced class expands on the repertoire of positions and moves the students learned in the beginning curriculum. Students also learn a sparring technique called “rolling,” which allows students to practice techniques at 100 percent resistance without fear of injury.

No Gi Grappling Class

The traditional uniform worn during Brazilian Jiu Jitsu competitions is called a “Gi,” and many techniques and moves are based on manipulating this uniform to gain control over an opponent. Our no Gi grappling class teaches students how to adjust their BJJ techniques for “out-of-uniform” situations and practical self-defense.
