I am offering a session for complete beginners to try Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ).
BJJ is a fun martial art that focuses on techniques on the ground. It is both a sport and a form of self defence and is loved by people of all shapes, sizes, ages and physical abilities.
Time and Date
Saturday October 15, 2016
10am to 12:30pm
I will be holding these sessions bi-monthly.
Sessions are open to anyone over 14years old.
The session begins promptly at the stated times. Please arrive 20mins early in order to give time for filling in an induction form.
Mackay MMA is located at 2 Hayes Lane, Mackay.
What to wear
Wear comfortable sports clothing, eg tshirt and jogging pants or shorts.Cost
What to expect
In this session, I will introduce participants to simple movements and concepts that form the basis of BJJ. We’ll then apply these movements to practice how to escape from being pinned to the floor. I will also introduce some basic ‘guard’ positions and a few simple and effective submission techniques. It’s a light to moderate work-out with an emphasis on simplicity, ease and of course….fun!
