Jiu Jitsu Fundamentals

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a grappling art predominantly conducted on the ground. The sport prioritizes leverage and technique over size and strength. It is ideal for anyone eager to enhance their fitness, learn essential self-defense skills, or simply embark on a new, engaging hobby.

Our beginner-friendly BJJ program at One Way Martial Arts emphasizes the foundational principles of the art, providing an inviting and comprehensive introduction to BJJ for newcomers:

  • Positional Control: A crucial element of BJJ is learning how to control your opponent's body through positional manipulation. As beginners, you'll learn the basics of maintaining dominant positions, such as mount and back control, and navigating and escaping from non-dominant positions like guard and side control.

  • Submissions: BJJ is celebrated for its diverse submissions, incorporating chokes and joint locks. Our beginner's classes focus on introducing you to these techniques safely and effectively, including how to guard against them.

  • Escapes and Reversals: BJJ is not solely about maintaining dominance over your opponent - it's equally important to learn how to extricate oneself from unfavorable positions and alter the dynamics of the encounter. We'll cover basic escapes and reversals that empower you to stay safe and take control.

  • Strategy and Tactics: BJJ is a strategic martial art, and our program will introduce you to the basics of reading your opponent and adjusting your tactics on the fly. You'll get a taste of how to orchestrate attacks, defend against retaliation, and manage the rhythm of the encounter.

At One Way Martial Arts, we firmly believe that BJJ is a martial art for everyone, irrespective of age, gender, or athletic capability. Our welcoming and skilled instructors will accompany you throughout your journey, guiding you from your initial class to your first steps into the world of BJJ competition.
