WHAT IS BRAZILIAN JIU JITSU?

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a Martial Art and a self-defense system that focuses on grappling and especially ground fighting. It began with Mitsuyo Maeda, a Japanese Jiu Jitsu master and member of the Kodokan. In the 1910s, Maeda immigrated to Brazil where an influential businessman named Gastão Gracie helped him get established. In return for his aid, Maeda taught the fighting art to Gastão’s son, Carlos Gracie, who then taught the art to his brothers and sons.  Professor Thomas has trained with many members of the Gracie family and is certified to teach the art to YOU!

IS JIU JITSU SAFE?

Safety is one of the core principles at RŌL Academy. Accidents may happen, however. Lack of seriousness during training and careless application of technique contribute to the risk of injury and will not be tolerated at our academy.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF TRAINING JIU JITSU?

  • Learn one of the most effective self-defense systems
  • Physical strength and health
  • Increased reaction time and self-awareness
  • Increased self-confidence, discipline, and respect for others
  • Join a productive community and make new friends

WHAT IS A GI AND WHY DO I NEED IT?

A Gi is used in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and was adapted from the uniform commonly used in Japanese Martial Arts. It is typically composed of a heavy cotton jacket and reinforced trousers. You DO NOT need a Gi for your first class (Intro Class); we recommend you have something comfortable to exercise in. A pair of loose shorts or jogging pants and a t-shirt are ideal.

IS JIU JITSU RIGHT FOR WOMEN?

Absolutely!!! Beyond the active and healthy lifestyle, RŌL Academy’s structured Self-Defense Program will not only give every female an outlet to discharge, meet others in the community, and reach her health and fitness goals, but also it will provide a realistic approach to safety in her everyday life.

AT WHAT AGE SHOULD KIDS GET INVOLVED?

ROL Kids Program begins at age 4.  However, to insure the safety and maximize the benefit of our curriculum, we recommend any child below age of 5 to be brought in for a FREE class and evaluation.

HOW DO I GET STARTED?

Starting is very simple. Contact RŌL Academy and schedule your FREE introduction class today. No experience is required; just bring comfy workout clothes and be ready to have fun.
