All Adults Students can attend as many classes as they like at either of our two locations. Most adults train two or three times a week depending on their availability. We have a total of 11 classes each week that are all 90 minutes long. Developing skills takes time and with such a wide range of skills to learn it is quite a journey from Beginner to Black Belt.
Black Belt in Jiu jitsu, like most styles of martial arts, means that you have learned the basics, as with many martial arts mastery does take a lifetime of study.
We adjust the training to be age appropriate so they do not practice chokes or other life threatening techniques etc in the teen classes. We do practice choke defences but not how to apply them. Many schools do teach teens how to apply chokes but I don't believe that at that age they should know know to do those extremely dangerous techniques. All Teens must train two times a week to be eligible to grade every three months.
Our teenage students learn a smaller number of self defence techniques that we have hand picked as appropriate for their age group along with some weapons training Bo (6 foot staff) Hanbo (3 foot staff) and very importantly Knife Defence
Our teens timetable is very flexible, with 11 class times in Thornbury and 8 times in Brunswick available it's one of our most popular age groups.
With more than 500 safety mats on one large training area located in Thornbury at 272 Dundas St
