Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (GI & NO GI) at Eastside Austin Elite
Our Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu classes introduce students to situational attacks and defense used when grappling. In each class students will be shown a new technique, such as an arm bar or leg lock, that they will then practice with a partner. Our interactive group classes are a great way to stay motivated and get a good workout. While it is recommended you have basic knowledge of grappling techniques for this class, it is all levels and our instructors take pride in adapting the class for any skill level.
There are two forms of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu:
Gi: Traditional system of submission grappling with a kimono where you are allowed to use grips on your opponents clothing to create leverage and cause your opponent to surrender.
No-Gi: Grappling conducted in board shorts with a drawstring, or elastic tight fitted clothing. No grabbing of the opponents clothing is allowed, and pace is generally faster and more athletic.
