Submission Grappling (also known as submission fighting, combat grappling, or simply as No-Gi jiu-jitsu) takes the same approach as Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, but without the advantage (or disadvantage) of a uniform to grab on to.
The difference between BJJ and submission grappling is in the grips. In the stand-up game, the grips provided by the BJJ uniform allow for many judo-style throwing and submission techniques, while submission grappling takedowns resemble those of traditional wrestling. Grips also come into play on the ground. Where the BJJ ground game is methodical and technical, submission grappling moves tend to be more fluid and fast-paced.
SG Fundamentals Class
Coming into a martial arts academy can be intimidating for the beginning student. Our goal with the fundamentals class is to allow our students to learn jiu-jitsu by focusing on the controlled drilling of techniques without active sparring.
The class also serves as a foundation for all students of BJJ. Lessons are focused on teaching the principles of the art, including self-defense, basic techniques, and to commit the core movements of BJJ to muscle memory.
SG Advanced Class
For the student who is interested in competing in the sport, or if the student is just interested in testing his knowledge in a more practical setting, our advanced class offers world-class instruction. 8-time world champion Rubens “Cobrinha” Charles passes on his knowledge in a structured setting, which includes medium-intensity sparring to condition the body.
