Team GRIPS offers a complete Brazilian Jiu Jitsu instruction program that incorporates excellent technique, live sparring, competition training, and fitness conditioning. Although our classes are intensive and utilize a vigorous exercise program, our instructor recognizes that each student is an individual with unique goals and progresses at his or her own level according to that student’s athletic and martial arts background and level of fitness.
In general, our classes are formatted as follows: The classes begin with a warm-up comprised of dynamic stretching drills to help protect against injury, prepare the body for the workout to follow and increase stamina and fitness. Following the warm-up, the instructor teaches various techniques so that the student will have a full arsenal of takedowns, submission, sweeps, reversals and escapes. 30 minutes of group sparring completes the session.
The Grips Head Brazilian Jiu Jitsu instructor is Rodrigo Caporal, a black belt from one of the world's most prolific BJJ teams, Atos Jiu Jitsu. He also trains in Mixed Martial Arts which Grips is pleased to offer as part of our class schedule.
GRIPS also offers a number of other classes such as: Boxing conditioning, Gorilla Training (Advanced Strength and Conditioning training) and High Intensity Interval training. Please have a look at our schedule for days and times.
