SIENNA JIU JITSU PROGRAM
What is Brazilian Jiu Jitsu? What is its purpose?
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a martial art designed to work with the principles of leverage and technique instead of brutal force and strength. The main focus of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is on ground grappling, the most important but often neglected area of martial arts. Students of Jiu Jitsu experience results that transcend gains in strength, flexibility, fitness or self-defense skills. By staying true to the lessons learned in practice and applying them on and off the mats, Gracie Barra practitioners develop an overall improvement on their focus, vitality and general health. The Gracie Barra Fundamentals Program will give you these basic principles of effective fighting to any individual willing to learn. Its curriculum adapts an immense diversity of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu into core fundamental techniques designed to optimize your learning with intelligence and safety in mind. The Gracie Barra Program Structure defines three main stages of development for students: the Fundamentals Program, the Advanced Program and the Black Belt Program. These stages indicate different maturity levels and students upgrade from one to the other in their own natural progression. While the Fundamentals Program focuses on the building blocks and basic principles of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, the Advanced Program is built on high-level techniques and drills that start shaping the students game flow through the development of reflexes, speed and reaction time as well as transitions between one technique and another.
