After a couple of years of having Jiu-Jitsu classes only on Wednesdays, we are now expanding. There will be beginner Jiu-Jitsu classes:

Tuesdays: 5:45 pm – 6:45 pm
Wednesdays: 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Fridays: 5:45 pm – 6:45 pm

If you live in or around Quincy, MA. Please let your friends and family members know about our Beginner Jiu-Jitsu program for adults. In this program, you will learn the 36 core techniques of Jiu-Jitsu in a fun, safe, and cooperative environment. Each one-hour lesson addresses one standing and one ground self-defense technique. You can start the program at any time and participate in any class without previous experience and, since safety is our number one concern, there is no competitive sparring in this program.

Although Jiu-Jitsu consists of over 600 techniques, studies of real fights conducted by members of the Gracie Family (founders of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu) have shown that 36 techniques have been used more often and with greater success than all the other techniques combined. Originally developed for the U.S. Army, our Beginner Jiu-Jitsu Program is entirely dedicated to the mastery of these 36 essential techniques. You need absolutely no experience to start this program. Our instructor conduct all classes in a cooperative training environment and are committed to ensuring that every new student has an informative, enjoyable experience regardless of age, gender, or athletic ability.

Does the U.S. Army’s Combatives system include too much BJJ?

I was online today and found a good article with a video of Matt Larson speaking about the Modern Army Combatives Program (MACP). Matt Larson answered a popular question that has plagued many top MACP instructors from their soldiers. After watching the video I feel Larson answered the question very well, and to my expectations. Even with my strong striking martial arts foundation, I believe that a grappling style martial arts is the best system to be implemented to modern soldiers, and what better system to use then the Jiu-Jitsu from the Gracie family.
