Jiu-Jitsu is both a martial art and a sport designed to improve physical fitness, teach self-defense and promote a healthy way of life. It builds confidence, character and great awareness of one's physical fitness, while developing skills for sport and self-defense..
USA Jiu-Jitsu Arkansas offers fundamental classes designed to take you from little or no experience to an advanced level of Jiu-Jitsu for competition and/or physical fitness. Our curriculum is based on proven techniques that are presented by knowlegable instructors who guide the students, making sure they gain the required level of knowlege and skill to advance.
Our classes consist of a warmup, presentation of 2 or 3 techniques, drilling those techniques under supervision on the mat, then specific drills designed to develop muscle memory for advancing from one position to another. The final segment of the class is what makes it all worth the effort...sparring and grappling. The chance to put into practice what has been taught.
There are no testing fees for promotion... it is a function of time in classes, time on the mat, retention skills and determination of the student and ultimately, the evaluation of the instructor. Everyone learns at a different pace and progresses at the pace they set with the instructor.
Uniform for classes is the Jiu-Jitsu Gi, fight shorts and rash guard for the no-gi classes..Classes are both Gi and no-Gi, primarily Gi. Fundamental Jiu-Jitsu is offered Monday through Sat.(Consult Schedule).
Everyone is required to obtain a gi for training. Gis can be obtained online or from the school. Experienced Jiu-Jitsu players are welcome to USA Jiu-Jitsu Arkansas for all classes Fundamental, Advanced and Open Mat Sessions.
