We have been teaching for the past 2 years.
We started in Onehunga and we are now located in Epsom.
We will be teaching every Tuesday and Thursday from 6 pm to 7.30 pm.
Our first class will start on Tuesday 7 January 20014.
We will be training Nogi every Tuesday and Gi on Thursday.
If you do not own a Gi (BJJ training uniform), just come in wear shorts and T-shirt.
What can we expect from a 90 minutes class?
A light warm-up. We do not turn our warm up into a conditioning class.
First technique is usually a stand up techniques which means throws as we do not teach striking.
Then the ground technique is based on the position of the day:
So the first class topic is Mount.
You learn how retain mount, escape mount, submissions from the mount.
Then we do situational sparring based on the position of the day.
To conclude, we do normal rolling (sparring) with a difference as we do include takedown sparring which means you start from standing.
The topic are rotational and repeat every 6 weeks.
So do not worry if you miss one class (mount for example), we will cover the particular topic in 6 weeks time. We will cover the topic of Mount position about 9 times per year.
Also, we have one class of questions and answers every 6 weeks when you can ask any questions.
