What We Teach In Greeley
We teach Brazilian jiu jitsu and judo. Jiu jitsu is a self-defense based martial art that encourages the use of leverage, timing and technique.
Jiu jitsu combines the use of takedowns, throws, ground grappling including the use of joint locks/manipulations and chokes to defend yourself. One of the fundamental concepts of jiu jitsu is for its practitioner to be resourceful by using their physical attributes to their maximum efficiency and effectiveness to defend themselves. It also encourages using an opponent’s energy and motion against them.
Judo is a close cousin to jiu jitsu. Judo incorporates throwing techniques, ground control, joint locks and chokes to defend yourself as well as using your opponents energy against them.
Our classes are designed not only to teach you how to defend yourself, but will also give you a great cardiovascular workout, encourage a healthy mindset, diet and lifestyle, and boost your overall confidence in your day-to-day life. Our training environment is one that encourages and promotes safety of our students first and foremost.
Our instructors are all formally trained and certified in Northern Colorado Jiu Jitsu’s Certified Instructors Program and Leadership Jiu Jitsu ™, as well are fully criminally background checked. Not only are our instructors passionate about teaching our students martial arts, but they are also highly skilled in communicating these skills effectively and consistently.
