WARNING: If you can’t defend yourself on the ground, then you cannot defend yourself!
You see that “Warning” at the top there, well, it’s there for good reason.
Because if you’re the least bit serious about learning how to defend yourself, then you absolutely must know the proven, “battle-tested” ground-fighting techniques of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.
“Most, nearly ALL, fights end up on the ground or in grappling range at one point or another.” That’s a FACT.
That means basically that if you don’t know how to defend yourself on the ground, you’re putting yourself (and even your loved ones) at extreme risk.
Let’s face it. If Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a “must-know” thing for professional mixed martial arts fighters like the guys fighting in the UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship) these days, it should most definitely be a “must-know” for pretty much anyone.
That’s because the “fight-ending submissions” and “fight-controlling positions” of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu have been battle-tested in combat, in a cage, in a ring and on the street.
Skinny Guy From Brazil Wins 1st UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship) Using ‘Secret’ Grappling Techniques!
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (or “BJJ”) has been around for a long time, long before a no-holds-barred fighter from Brazil named Royce Gracie made it popular in the early ’90s when he won the very first UFC – which at the time were “bare knuckle” and had “no rules” – and he won it in dominating fashion, ending all of his fights on the ground using his BJJ “secret techniques”.
The crazy thing about what Royce Gracie did was that he was only around 180 pounds when he fought.
He was this skinny little guy; he didn’t “look” like a fighter. But he won and exposed a glaring weakness in all of martial arts… that most people were absolutely clueless on how to defend themselves once a fight got to the ground.
At the time these mysterious moves this fighter was using were secrets to MOST people because hardly anybody in America was aware of them at the time.
You had these huge, strong, scary-looking guys who had skills on their feet but once they got within grappling range, the fight went to the ground and it was all over.
You Don’t Have To Be A Fighter To Enjoy Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu!
It doesn’t matter if you’re older or young, if you’re big and looking to lose weight or small and looking to build strength…
it doesn’t matter if you’re male or female…
or even if you want to compete or not (and in our program, you don’t need to want to compete; most people who want to try BJJ aren’t interested in competition)…
in shape or out of shape, ALL are welcome…
As a matter of fact, there are all kinds of people from right here in San Diego/Chula Vista discovering the benefits of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) training at Alliance Training Center, and if you haven’t checked it out for yourself yet, then, well, you’re missing out big time.
Because while BJJ will teach you how to defend yourself once a fight gets in the grappling range or on the ground, it also gets you in great shape, builds strength and flexibility, and is pretty darn fun, too.
