Often when we teach a new group of people who are already involved in the martial arts, we let them begin in the bottom of the mount and ask them to demonstrate how to escape. This is our way of defining their level of experience in the ground game in a blink of an eye. If the first thing they do is striking or eye gouging, we know we have a lot of work to do.
Our goal is to make the amazing self-defense system, sport & martial art called jiu-jitsu known to as many people as possible in our community. Everybody knows karate and judo. But not everybody has heard of jiu-jitsu, whether it be a more traditional style or a more sport oriented style like BJJ. We created this blog to help the people understand what jiu-jitsu is all about. We believe that many people would benefit from jiu-jitsu … only if they knew.
