BJJ Seminar with 2 Time Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Black Belt National Champion Regis Calixto in Worcester and Ludlow, Massachusetts at Team Link Brazilian Jiu Jitsu

Gracie Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Seminar on September 4th and 5th of 2010.

Ludlow, MA, September 02, 2010 --( Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu involves techniques that are to be used without hurting your opponent. It requires extensive training to gain expertise in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and carry out the techniques as desired. The training methods involve warm-up sessions, learning the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu techniques and then practicing against full resistance. The warm-up sessions include push-ups, running laps, crunches or other exercises as your trainer deems fit for you. This is followed by learning basic Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu techniques such as mount positions, armlock, chokes, close/open guard, and so on. In most cases, you will be partnered with someone on a mat to learn these techniques.

The next methods in the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu training would be drilling and sparring which form the practice part of your training. Drilling and sparring may be divided into sub-categories such as solo drill, cooperative 2 persons drill and finally sparring. Let’s look into all the methods briefly.

Solo drills: In this method, you need to practice a few Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu techniques, movements or positions by yourself. This method is used during the warm-up sessions after you have learned the techniques.

Cooperative 2 persons drill: In this, you practice a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu movement or technique against a non-resisting partner. This method helps you to develop a movement and apply it practically.

Sparring: This method allows you to practice Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu techniques against a competitor with full resistance. An instance of sparring is when you try to escape from your partner when he has gained a mount position over you with full force. In sparring, you can use any legal technique of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu to submit your partner and hence, it is close to a fight in a real competition.
