Adult Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Classes
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) is a self-defense martial art that focuses on grappling/ground fighting. By using leverage and proper technique, BJJ allows virtually anyone to fight off and defeat much bigger and stronger opponents.
If you’re thinking about taking our BJJ course but don’t know where to start, check out this video featuring our instructor Josh who explains everything from how to sign up for a class, to discovering the right attire, and mastering the art of wearing the BJJ Gi (uniform for training in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu).
Our Adult White belts class focuses on learning the fundamental techniques and positions of BJJ, including basic takedowns, guard positions, and submissions. This includes understanding how to move their body on the ground, how to use leverage to control their opponent, and how to escape. This class is for all white belts and new members.
Our Adult Advanced class is designed to help students who have already earned a color belt to continue to develop their skills and proficiency in the art. The class focuses on complex techniques and chaining moves together in a way that creates a flow of submissions, which requires a high level of technical proficiency and control. By working on controlling positions and using leverage and timing to set up submissions, students in the class can develop their own personal style and approach to the art. This can help them become more well-rounded BJJ practitioners and prepare them for more advanced levels of training.
Scott Thompson and his team of instructors teach Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) classes for both kids and adults three times per week at 88 Tactical. Scott trained with Rickson Gracie from 1993 until 2000, when Rickson returned to Brazil. Shortly after, he became an affiliate of Fabio Santos, a RED AND BLACK BELT under the Gracie family and has an academy in San Diego, CA. Scott provides a friendly and encouraging environment in which to learn and apply the techniques of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. You will learn true, undiluted Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu with rank achieved under Scott Thompson and Fabio Santos. Scott Thompson is the longest Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu practitioner in the Midwest.
