THE GENTLE ART OF HUMAN CHESS

In Japanese, “Jiu Jitsu” translates to “Gentle Art.” It is a submission grappling style that continues to prove itself as the most effective form of self defense and ground fighting art. Using timing, leverage, and technique, smaller, less powerful practitioners can exhaust and eventually submit larger, stronger opponents. With roots in Japanese Judo, BJJ was nurtured in Brazil and popularized in the 90s when Royce Gracie submitted all of his opponents in the UFC. It is now a staple aspect of training regiments for law enforcement, military personnel, and professional MMA fighters worldwide. It is the best full body and mind workout on the planet, offering an unprecedented marriage of physical prowess, cunning, strategy, and endurance that will take your mind, body, and spirit to the next level!

At Primate Jiu Jitsu, our students step on the mats humble and hungry to learn. They leave the mats drenched in sweat, stronger, smarter, smiling, a little harder to kill, and overall as better versions of themselves!

NO-GI JIU JITSU

In no-Gi BJJ, we do not wear any special uniform. No-Gi BJJ is often more fast-paced than Gi Jiu Jitsu since we do not have grips to neutralize explosive or slippery movements.

To attend your first No-Gi BJJ class, simply show up in comfortable athletic attire. Yoga pants, board shorts, rash guards, t-shirts, and compression shirts are all acceptable. Basketball shorts and jersey shorts are also fine as long as they don’t have pockets or zippers. We have Primate Jiu Jitsu rash guards, t-shirts, and shorts available for purchase at the gym.

GI JIU JITSU

When we train BJJ in the Gi (pronounced ghee), we have powerful grips at our disposal (i.e. on the collar, sleeves, belt, and pants) that allow us to establish an additional level of control against our opponent. They also introduce techniques and submission moves (collar chokes, for instance) that are not available in No-Gi BJJ.

Unlike a traditional martial arts kimono, the BJJ Gi is more durable and includes reinforced stitching in key areas like the knees and collar which allow it to endure constant grabbing, yanking, and pulling. A quality Jiu Jitsu Gi is designed to last for years.

At Primate Jiu Jitsu, you don’t need to own a Gi on your first day. Come dressed in comfortable athletic attire and we will get you fitted out for a loaner Gi. We keep loaners on hand for prospect members, new students, and guests. We also have a stock of embroidered Primate BJJ Gis available for purchase when you decide to get your own.

Another thing that sets Gi apart from No-Gi is the belt. The belt is the material representation of your Jiu Jitsu journey and is only worn in the Gi. All new BJJ practitioners begin as white belts. To read more about the Brazilian Jiu Jitsu belts and ranking system, please click here.

CLASS STRUCTURE (GI AND NO-GI)

All of our adult Brazilian Jiu Jitsu classes have a similar format. We begin with a traditional line up, warm-ups, and movement drills. Next the instructor demonstrates a technique or series of techniques. Students pair off and drill them on one another. Towards the end of class, students pair off again to roll. Rolling is the Brazilian Jiu Jitsu equivalent of sparring. Rolling allows us to put our skills to the ultimate test against a fully resisting opponent. New students are paired up with more experienced students to ensure the best possible learning experience.

LITTLE PRIMATES

At Primate BJJ we are passionate about what we do. Our instructors are committed to ensuring our Kids Jiu Jitsu program provides a fun, safe, and encouraging environment for our young students to learn and grow. Kids classes at Primate Jiu Jitsu teach far more than just the most effective form of self defense. Jiu Jitsu is a social activity as much as it is an independent journey, which gives kids the opportunity to practice social skills and make healthy friends at the same time they build self confidence and self respect through personal achievements. One of the most precious benefits of children’s Jiu Jitsu is experiencing the true fulfillment of rewards that can only be earned with time, sweat, and met challenges. In a world dominated by instant gratification, the value of hard work is an easy lesson to miss as a child and gets harder to learn the older we become. Furthermore, Jiu Jitsu is a great opportunity for kids to get quality exercise and have a great time doing it! Sign your little ones up for a FREE CLASS or $20 TWO WEEK TRIAL and see for yourself why the kids (and parents) love coming to Primate Jiu Jitsu!

TINY KIDS (AGES 5-7)

Our Tiny Kids program is designed for the smallest of our youngsters. Class begins with a traditional line-up, fun warm-ups, and basic movement drills. The instructors will demonstrate a fundamental Brazilian Jiu Jitsu technique and students will pair off to drill it on a coach or on each other under instructor supervision. Towards the end of class, students will participate in supervised “situational rolling.” This is a safe, supervised way for our smallest students to practice their BJJ fundamentals against fully resisting opponents starting from familiar positions. Time permitting, we will end class with a fun group activity such as dodgeball.

BIG KIDS (AGES 8-12)

Once kids reach the ripe old age of 8, we invite them to attend our Big Kids program. These classes follow a similar format to the Tiny Kids classes, but the technical drills will be more complex and include additional details. Furthermore, Big Kids will also participate in “free rolling.” While a situation roll begins from a familiar position (such as the closed guard or side control), free rolling is an open format roll where students begin from a neutral, standing position.

THE ART OF EIGHT LIMBS

Muay Thai is the national sport of Thailand. It is known as “The Art of Eight Limbs” because Thai fighters deliver effective strikes with their knees and elbows in addition to the traditional use of fists and feet. Muay Thai artists leverage timing and opportunity to overwhelm their opponents with short-range attacks and deliver devastating finishing blows from a distance.

Muay Thai is widely accepted as the most effective striking form for self defense and is the preferred striking style for professional mixed martial artists worldwide. Low-risk, debilitating low leg kicks and control in the clinch are other highly effective distinguishing features of Muay Thai.

CLASS STRUCTURE

At Primate Jiu Jitsu, our Muay Thai classes are geared towards everyone from teenagers dabbling in combat sports, to adults looking for a killer workout, to athletes in their prime training for a career in mixed martial arts. Classes begin with a warm up such as shadow boxing and active stretching. The majority of class is taken up with technical drills led by the instructor. Students take turns drilling combos and holding pads for their partner. Towards the end of class, students have the option to spar.

ATTIRE

Appropriate attire for Muay Thai is comfortable athletic clothing. We have Thai pads and gloves available at the academy for students to borrow on a first-come first-served basis. We also sell 16oz gloves for students interested in purchasing a pair of their own. Many of our students also choose to wear handwraps underneath their gloves for added comfort and support, but this is a personal preference and is left to students to provide for themselves.
