Dayton Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Program
Dayton Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Program here at TAMA Martial Arts Center is a martial art from Brazil and combat sport. The classes focus on grappling and especially ground fighting that involves submission techniques with chokes/strangles, joint locks, and complete control and dominance of your opponent on the mat. This art is derived from the early 20th century Kodenkan Judo, which was itself then a recently-developed system (founded in 1882), based on multiple schools (or Ryu) of Japanese traditional jujutsu. Then into the modern combative sport of Brazil through Mitsuyo Maeda and Helio Gracie-the Gracie Jiu-jitsu.
Submissions – are based on chokes, strangles, and joint lock attacks. Joint locks are involved in isolating an opponent’s limbs and creating a lever with body mechanics that will force the joint to move past its normal range of motion. With proper pressure on the joint locks, the opponent cannot escape and will signal defeat by submission
Dayton Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu classes have aspects of self-defense and sport grappling tournaments preparation. It has been a mainstream for the MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) fighters and sport grappling tournaments both for no-gi and gi competition arena. Randori, Rolling or sparring which is live drilling play a major role in training. Along with new techniques, students learn weekly that is drilled many times over to become second nature reaction on a live training or competition. It is about the techniques, leverage and the principles behind each movement that even a smaller person can outdo a larger and bigger, stronger assailant
Chokes involve in constricting the windpipe (causing asphyxia), while strangles involves in constricting the carotid artery area (causing ischemia). Applying the right amount of pressure necessary will result in having your partner tap out into submission. If applied beyond than necessary, one can destroy the trachea area and it can result in death. The students are taught to tap out when they feel the pressure and not able to move.
The Dayton Brazilian Jiu-jitsu training method is safety first to all members. The students are a challenge to apply the techniques during “live” sparring, on what they have learned during class. The instructors prepare the students both in fitness-physical conditioning and proper BJJ techniques. Our training methods include technique drills in which techniques are practiced against a non-resisting partner; isolation sparring, commonly referred to as positional drilling, where only a certain technique or sets of techniques are used against and full sparring in which each opponent tries to submit their opponent using any legal technique or submission techniques.
