Frequently Asked Questions

Answers To Commonly Questions

What are some effective ways to improve my guard retention?

We emphasize drills focused on hip movement and maintaining proper angles to enhance guard retention. Additionally, consistent drilling of specific guard retention techniques will help refine your ability to react effectively in live situations.

Can you explain the key concepts behind executing a proper armbar from the guard?

Our instructors break down the mechanics of executing an armbar from the guard step by step, ensuring that each student understands the leverage points and principles behind the technique. Through dedicated practice and attention to detail, you'll master the armbar and its variations.

How can I develop better timing for my takedowns?

Timing is crucial in Jiu-Jitsu, especially for takedowns. We integrate specific timing drills into our curriculum, focusing on entries, setups, and reactions to your opponent's movements. You'll develop the timing necessary to execute takedowns with precision through repetition and situational sparring.

Our classes are designed to help beginners and experienced practitioners alike. Our instructors provide thorough instruction, focusing on fundamental techniques and gradually building upon them as students progress.

Do you offer competitions or belt promotions?

While many of our students are hobbyists, we also have many students who love competing and love helping others get "competition ready" with intense training. As long as you stay consistent in your training you should get promoted. Remember, a black belt is a white belt who never quit.
