Sign up for a 6-week session! In this class, you won’t be training in preparation for a UFC fight, you’ll be training in a classic Japanese martial art that has a millennium of history behind it, and Brian, the instructor, has over 30 years of experience in Jujutsu, including teaching the Marine Corps Martial Arts Program (MCMAP) for over 10 years. Jujutsu involves using the body in ways most people aren’t used to, so you will be led through a warm up to warm and stretch the areas of the body that will be worked that day. The instructor will explain, demonstrate, have you imitate the move while he’s doing it, teach you how to properly receive the technique, and finally put you on supervised practice on the padded floor. In this six-week program, the goal is that you will show up each week to learn additional techniques to build on what you learned in the week prior.
