A traditional Jiu-Jitsu curriculum includes Strike Defense, Distance Management Skills, Basic Control from standing and ground positions, basic takedown and throwing abilities, takedown defenses and submission skills.
Here at Javier Vazquez Jiu Jitsu Rancho Cucamonga we make sure that all these elements are addressed. We follow the basic principles of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu from our Grand Master, Helio Gracie. Every technique follows each of these three basic principles: Energy Efficiency, Natural Body Movements and Street Applicability.
Whats the difference between Javier Vazquez Jiu-Jitsu and Sport Jiu-Jitsu?
The biggest difference between Sport Jiu-Jitsu and Javier Vazquez Jiu-Jitsu is that in Javier Vazquez Jiu-Jitsu we deal with an opponent that can throw or is throwing strikes at our head and body. We discuss the defensive mindset established over 90 years ago by our Grand Master, Helio Gracie. We focus on defense first and attack second. We focus on the principles or patience, energy efficiency and street applicability. You must be able to neutralize your opponent before you can attack and finish a fight.
Benefits of Javier Vazquez Jiu-Jitsu
The biggest benefits of our system of self defense is that it will give you the courage and confidence to deal with life’s most common face to face confrontational scenarios even if those confrontations become physical. Having the skills to know that you can defend yourself even against larger, stronger and heavier opponents will change your life forever!
What makes us different? It starts with our Experience.
