Brazilian Jiu Jitsu
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is one of American Top Team’s core training programs. It is an excellent way to get in shape, build stamina and increase flexibility. BJJ is considered one of the most effective martial arts in the world because it allows a smaller, weaker person to defeat a stronger and larger opponent using leverage and proper technique. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is primarily a ground-fighting art where all practioners wear a gi or “kimono”. Most techniques involve the students on the mat, with a heavy emphasis on positional strategy, live rolling, and drills to help with your submissions and techniques. Once in proper position, many different types of submissions can be applied such as: armbars, wristlocks, chokes, and leglocks. Students always practice with self control and safety for one another while training.
