Kids BJJ (Ages 4-8)
Evolution's Kids BJJ program is designed to introduce
children to the basic principles and philosophies behind
BJJ. Students in this program will become comfortable
on the ground and learn the basics of each position.
Each concept is presented in a playful manner while
still emphasizing technical development. We have a variety
of structured games at our disposal designed to refine
motor skills, develop patience, confidence, discipline
and listening skills.
Juniors BJJ (Ages 9-13)
For kids aged 9-13, our Jiu-Jitsu classes begin to
focus on a wider array of techniques as well as the
details within them. The class aims to further develop
and refine the basic Jiu-Jitsu techniques covered in
the younger children's class. Students in this class
also participate in structured games allowing them to
practice their skills against resisting opponents. The
class features more opportunities for rolling and introduces
intermediate submission techniques. Students in this
age group develop a solid foundation for problem solving,
critical thinking and other valuable life skills that
they will use well into adulthood.
Sport - This class is open to adult students of all levels. For students who are new to Jiu-Jitsu, we recommend that they take as many Fundamental BJJ classes as their schedule allows. Our Fundamental BJJ
program focuses primarily on basic defensive positions, submissions, sweeps, and escapes in a sport/competition setting. The techniques taught in this
class will help students develop a solid foundation
they can build on as they move forward in their training.
Combatives - This class is open to adult students of all levels and emphasizes self-preservation in a real-life situation especially when strikes are involved. Managing the distance between yourself and your opponent and strike awareness are the primary skills taught in this program. Mastery of several Combatives BJJ modules is needed in order to advance in rank.
Sport - This class is open to more advanced students. New students
who would like to attend should have the approval of
the instructor and are required to know the techniques
taught in the Fundamental BJJ for Adults classes. Our
Advanced BJJ for Adults classes focus on achieving a
greater degree of technical proficiency, a deeper understanding
of positions, submissions and defense. This class typically
consists of higher intensity warm ups, drilling and
live sparring than our Fundamental BJJ classes.
Advanced Combatives - This class is open to adult students who have tested and passed their Combatives BJJ modules. In this program, lessons are organized and taught in postitional groupings (mount, guard, back, side control etc.). Classes are concluded with training drills, sparring and fight simulation.
Our Combat Kickboxing class focuses on proper striking technique, stance,
footwork, movement and defense to strikes. Participants will learn a variety
of hand and foot strikes as well as knees and elbows.
These are taught not only on heavy bags and speed bags, but we also incorporate pads and live sparring. Improved strength & conditioning is achieved by using weights, plyometrics and total body exercises so that you will gain added confidence to handle any situation.
Judo, primarily a grappling martial art, is derived from various forms of Japanese Jiu-Jitsu. Students, when standing, learn how to sweep, trip and throw opponents to the ground. Students, when on the ground, learn to control and pin their opponents. Additionally, participants will learn defensive aspects of the martial art such as learning how to fall, avoiding takedowns, reversing pins and escaping positions. Judo has been an official Olympic event since 1964. In addition to the sport aspect, Judo is an excellent martial art for self-defense and a great workout for improving & maintaining physical fitness. The class is taught in a safe, fun and friendly environment.
All students are welcome during Open Mat. This is an
opportunity to practice techniques, ask questions, live sparring/rolling
or just enjoy each other’s company.
Private and semi-private lessons offer you a unique
opportunity for individualized attention with our instructors
and will help you accelerate your training at a faster
rate than in a group setting. Tell us your goals and
your instructor will formulate a plan to get you there.
