Ground Fighting & Submission Holds
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) is one of the most popular martial arts in Vancouver and we offer one of the best programs available.
Felipe Costa, the former head instructor of Gracie Barra in Vancouver BC, has been teaching BJJ for 8 years and now offers classes for all levels at Impact Krav Maga & Fitness. Expect a fun and exciting lesson that builds confidence and competency in the craft of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.
We have dedicated classes for beginners as well as no-gi sessions for those interested in submission wrestling / grappling. BJJ is also a great compliment to Krav Maga training as many of the ground techniques are the same and can be used for self-defense.
Whether you are a beginner or an advanced practitioner, you will be joining a positive and inclusive community of BJJ enthusiasts.
What is Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu?
Unlike many traditional martial arts that focus primarily on striking techniques, BJJ emphasizes ground fighting and submission holds, making it applicable in common scenarios where fights end up on the ground.
Its effectiveness lies in the principle of leverage and technique, enabling smaller individuals to overcome larger and stronger opponents. This practicality has led to its widespread adoption among martial artists, combat sports enthusiasts, military, and law enforcement personnel.
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu also plays a crucial role in the realm of Mixed Martial Arts (MMA), where it is widely recognized as a fundamental skill set for fighters. BJJ provides fighters with a comprehensive understanding of grappling techniques, positional control, and submissions.
Jiu-Jitsu for Health & Fitness
Aside from being a lot of fun, Jiu-Jitsu offers one of the best full-body workouts out there. The constant movement, grappling, and transitions involved in Jiu-Jitsu engages the entire body, improving strength and cardiovascular fitness. Jiu-Jitsu is also great for developing better flexibility and overall body awareness / control.
In addition to the physical aspects of training, Jiu-Jitsu can require high levels of mental engagement and strategy. It’s often said that BJJ is like a chess game with every move also having a counter move. Mastery requires a deep understanding of fundamental principles and the ability to combine them in creative and effective ways.
