In this class students learn how to use their BJJ techniques to defend against strikes on the feet and the ground as well as how to escape common street holds. Quick and easy “fight enders” are emphasized; situational awareness, reflex development and de-escalation strategies are also hallmarks of this program.
At its core Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a fighting art. The primary purpose of BJJ training is to allow a smaller, weaker person to defeat a larger attacker in a no rules situation. Unfortunately, due to the popularity of tournament styled jiu-jitsu most BJJ schools have lost this element of the art. Sadly, there are BJJ black belts who have never trained to stop an opponent from punching them. At Precision MMA our coaches know how to apply their grappling when fists are flying. Head coach Brian McLaughlin has used his jiu-jitsu successfully in professional mixed martial arts to defeat professional boxers, division 1 wrestlers, BJJ Black belts and MMA champions. In addition, Precision coaches have trained extensively with Gracie Jiu-Jitsu black belt Javier Vazquez; the first person to run a srike-based jiu-jitsu program tailored 100% towards self-defense.
