Here at Vision BJJ, we decided to return to the traditions of Gracie Jiu Jitsu (the original BJJ) and incorporate self-defense training as an integral part of the overall training program. Not only do we cover the popular aspects of sport BJJ and tournament competition as well as the less common self-defense aspects of BJJ, but we also include boxing, kick boxing, and security-style non-violent restraint techniques.
This approach has two significant advantages. First, it teaches our students realistic ways to defend themselves in dangerous situations. Second, the variety of techniques keep our classes from becoming stale or boring! As another way to keep classes interesting, challenging, and motivating, we sometimes focus on martial arts oriented strength and conditioning training, as well as rolling (the term used for sparring in BJJ).
