Fundamentals: With a strong focus on self-defense, Alliance’s fundamental program incorporates the same jiu jitsu first taught at the original Gracie academy in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil during the 1960’s. The class is designed to prepare students for both self-defense, and sport jiu jitsu while at the same time improving cardiovascular endurance, balance, and coordination. The fundamental program is designed for anyone, male or female, any body type, or any age (16 and over).
The class quickly prepares students for Alliance’s world renown advanced program, and gives students a sturdy base of knowledge that they will put to practice throughout their jiu jitsu study. Class format consists of the following; a light warm-up, 2-3 techniques are shown, and finally several drills are performed. The drills are Alliance’s secret to successful teaching, and are equivalent to sparing for beginners, but are done with little resistance to reinforce proper technique.
