Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu

The art of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu focuses on ground work and submissions.  Practitioners learn how to utilize Brazilian Jiujitsu principles from different positions on the ground with their partner.  Students learn takedowns, basic and advanced positions, transitions between those positions, and submission techniques.  The video shows practitioners wearing the uniform (gi); at Plus One Defense Systems, we also train without the uniform, which is known as “no-gi BJJ.”

Take a BJJ Class for Self Defense

According to research, a vast majority of fights go to the ground. Knowing how to defend yourself when you are on the ground, or when you and your assailant are on the ground, is imperative to your safety. This art deals with close-quarter combat, evasion and submission. For men and women alike, practicing the techniques of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu could be the difference between evading a scuffle and a violent crime.


Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu for Women

We have many female practitioners who love this martial art for the intense, total body workout. Grappling effectively requires strength but this particular art is also about submission tactics; these tactics can and will work against anyone. Therefore, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a perfect component to add to your arsenal to even the playing field!

We offer both Womens-Only BJJ classes AND Co-Ed BJJ Classes. In fact, we were the first academy in CT to offer a womens-only BJJ class.
