TECHNIQUE AND FLEXIBILITY ARE THE MOST IMPORTANT ASSETS IN THE AWESOME SPORT THAT IS BJJ! GET READY TO DISCOVER THIS SPORT, ORIGINALLY BORN IN BRASIL. COME TO LEARN THE "NE WAZA" FIGHTING!
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is an art based in ground fighting. Along with this, it teaches takedowns, takedown defense, ground control and especially submissions. Submissions refer to holds that either cut off an opponent’s blood and or air supply to the brain (chokes) or look to take advantage of a joint (such as armbars). Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu fighters tend to feel very comfortable fighting from a position called the guard, if need be. The guard position, wrapping one's legs around an opponent to limit their movement, allows them to fight from their backs so effectively and is also something that separates their art from most other grappling styles. Today, nearly all MMA fighters train in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu due to the success that past practitioners have had in the sport.

VTC’s BJJ lessons are structured for kids, beginners and advanced grapplers. No matter what level your Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is, we will professionally guide and support your development in one of our BJJ courses!
Our Kids BJJ classes are open to children from the ages of 5 and up, although depending on the child, sometimes earlier! Our Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu course will teach your children the basics of Jiu-Jitsu and will set them up for a successful grappling career in competition and as a martial artist. Kids Jiu Jitsu not only provides unequalled self-defence benefits, but also provides your child with real-life problem solving skills, discipline, peers and teammates and of course, exercise! Our kids BJJ classes are a pillar of our Brazilian Jiu Jitsu here at VTC Las Vegas and have a dedicated competition team, training regularly and competing in local, national and international tournaments.
The BJJ fundamental lessons are structured to introduce the gentle art to newcomers to the sport. Each class will focus on fundamental techniques that will serve as a foundation for years to come. Students will follow a curriculum designed specifically to protect themselves in real life situations through self-defence, submissions, escapes and positional control. They will learn in a controlled environment monitored closely by the instructor. Students will move onto the intermediate/advanced class when the instructor feels they are ready to take their next step!
The intermediate/advanced class is for BJJ athletes who are ready to take their jiu jitsu to the next level. This class will have more detailed instruction and teach a wide variety of techniques from standing, passing, sweeping, submissions and escapes. Elements of this class will push a competition style of jiu jitsu. This means the classes will be longer with a higher intensity level. There will be specific training, longer rounds and it will focus on helping students to build versatility and a well-rounded BJJ game.
