Gracie Jiu Jitsu Fundamentals (Gi & NoGi)
The Fundamental Program teaches the most important positions and techniques of Gracie Jiu Jitsu in the period of a Cycle, each Cycle is broken down into Chapters of associated positions and techniques. This class places emphasis on the core movements and techniques in the progression from white to blue belt. The main focus being Jiu Jitsu vs an untrained but larger attacker. Every class includes self defence, striking, clinching, takedowns and how to maintain or achieve a dominate position on a larger attacker. Every year Professor Will is invited to attend the Annual Meeting in San Diego to demonstrate all fundamentals techniques and be taught the updated and evolved techniques which are in turn taught to the students when he returns, all over seen by Master Royler Gracie and an assortment if his brothers. This class is popular for all levels as the techniques are always been updated and evolved.
Advanced Gracie Jiu Jitsu (Gi & NoGi)
Once achieving the level of blue belt, students are encouraged to participate in this class to learn new techniques, combinations and strategies to sharpen their current skills developing their “Jiu Jitsu vs Jiu Jitsu”. A key focus of the Intermediate Gracie Jiu Jitsu Syllabus is the further development of Self Defence skills through Fight Training with the introduction of 16oz gloves. Gloves are worn by attackers and students learn to safely manage distance, close distance and achieve dominant positions on the ground, in the clinch or against a wall in order to restrain the attacker. Weapon defenses to knives, sticks, bats, chains and guns are also taught in this class. Only coloured belts attend these classes. The development of Pressure, Timing, sharpening fundamental techniques and advanced techniques constitutes the Intermediate Syllabus.
Gracie Jiu Jitsu Open Mat & Academy Open Mat
Open Mat Classes provide students with the opportunity to practice other methods of learning in their development and mastery of Gracie Jiu Jitsu. Students participate in specific positional based training, select time duration training, training with handicaps (less a limb or hand) as well as Flow Rolling. Gracie Humaita Brisbane is one of the few academies where all matches start from standing so takedowns/throws that are taught in Self Defense are used in the Open Mat along with all other techniques. The difference between the two is one class is for Gracie Jiu Jitsu students only, the other is open to all styles at the Academy.
This class is for Girls only and is taught by Professor Wil Tritton and his wife Monika Tritton. This class covers the Gracie Jiu Jitsu Fundamentals as well as variations of techniques that work well for a smaller people against larger or stronger people. Self Defense is covered every lesson focusing on techniques that women would encounter if attacked at work, home, socialising or traveling. The second half of the class links directly into the Cycle of the Fundamentals mentioned above. A great class to be introduced to Jiu Jitsu.
