Journey Martial Arts Academy is extremely excited to welcome 5th degree black belt Cristiano Ribeiro for a beginners primer on Brazilian Jiu Jitsu on Friday, Nov 2nd @ 6PM. Register for FREE here:
Coach Ribeiro brings a wealth of knowledge and real world experience with over 20+ years as a Gracie Jiu Jitsu black belt and a competitor.
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a combat art that specializes in ground-fighting and is used by the military and professional mma fighters. Here are just a few fundamental techniques you’ll learn in this 1.5 hour workshop:
- How to escape the dreaded Full Mount position – never allow yourself to be ground-and-pounded or choked!
- How to use the powerful guard position to protect yourself from blows and set up submissions.
- Learn distance-management techniques to avoid getting hit, even if you’re up against a big brawler
- Discover the biggest reason most self-defense systems set you up to fail by ignoring the chaotic nature of street fights and grappling
- Learn a basic escape and an easy submission hold that works even if the person is twice your size and strength
That’s just a small taste of life-changing skills that Cris has spent the last two decades perfecting as a seasoned world champion competitor in BJJ and MMA.
