In order to better help our students progress, we've added a fundamentals class on Mondays right before our regular evening class. This will help new students get familiar with basic positions, techniques and concepts so they can more effectively participate in regular class. Brand new students are encouraged to attend. Intermediate students are also welcomed, as many of the basic techniques do appear on the belt tests.
Sometimes regular class can be intimidating to students brand new to jiu jitsu because of class size, rank break out, and unfamiliarity with all the positions being taught. This fundamentals class is a great way to focus on the basics, even if you're participating in regular class afterwards.
