We are excited to host Open Mat Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu sessions on Sundays at 12 noon. There are many benefits to Open Mat sessions, from fine-tuning techniques to developing your in-the-moment-strategy as you face new and unpredictable opponents.
As life-long students of jiu-jitsu, our game will constantly be evolving: there will be new learnings that develop into honed skills; at times we will have frustrating plateaus and other times mind-blowing breakthroughs; depending on our belt rank, our game will demand that we focus on defense and other times we will consistently be on the attack; periods of our practice will be centered around competition & sport while others on street-smarts & self-defense; and, as we age, we may need to take more care for the pace, pressure, and style we choose to roll.
While Open Mat is traditionally thought of as open sparring time, it can be much more than that. It allows you to customize your time on the mat based on what you need at that stage in your game. Get the most out of this new class by giving advance thought to the stage of your game and your current needs. Then, choose partners that will support you in that development. And, most of all, have fun!
Mix it up. Join our No Gi Jiu-Jitsu Class on Mondays and Open Mat on Sundays. Take advantage of these classes to improve & expand your game and make your martial art training more exciting.
See you on the mat!
