Inaugural Self Defense Curriculum added to our training program

While we teach and train for Brazilian Jiu Jitsu competition under IBJJF rules, self defense is an
important aspect of Jiu Jitsu.

We encourage our students to compete but it is not compulsory.

This year, we decided to start a formal curriculum of self defense to our program.

Inspired by the Gracie Self defense, it will be introduced with one technique per week.

Also, we have allocated 2 weeks for self defense training which we will use to do a revision of the techniques already covered during the semester and will introduce sparring against strikes (with boxing gloves).

The 2 allocated weeks will be 17 & 19 March and 16 & 18 June.

http://www.aucklandbjj.com/p/bjj-training-program-for-second.html

Mario will be teaching this new program under the supervision of the black belt instructors.

Mario joined our club in 2013 from Ecuador.

Mario received his purple belt from the Bidokan Ecuador (Prof. Roberto Bitar Cabezas)

http://www.bidokan.com/

The Bidokan is a Royce Gracie affiliate and teach traditional Gracie Jiu Jitsu with a strong focus in self defense.

We are very happy to offer this important and vital aspect of Jiu Jitsu.
