Adult Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Classes
Our adult Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu classes are geared for men and women ages 16+ and include our ADULT Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, BJJ Competition Classes, and Open Mat opportunities.
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Fundamentals Classes are considered to be the building blocks of BJJ. These classes are a necessity for all skill levels, beginner to advanced. Beginners are started with learning the basics and those basic moves are built upon as you progress. It is imperative that higher belt levels utilize these classes as a way to improve their skill set. The difference between a white belt and a black belt is the dedication to repeat a move until it becomes effortless. Fundamental classes have a strong focus on the basics, and helps with cardiovascular endurance, balance and coordination. At Drago everyone counts, everyone learns.
Kids and Teens Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Classes
At Drago Academy we focus on developing confidence and self-esteem at the forefront. Kids love to roll! When you combine the teachings and techniques, drills positions and manuevors, you will see the results as they safely test their skills against others, all while having a blast on the mats! You will also see the results in the belt ranks that they will be awarded as they progress and grow with the training.
Your child will develop a tremendous amount of body awareness, balance, coordination and root strength from the grappling aspects of Jiu-Jitsu. All of this development is a definite advantage in other sports that they may be doing as well. Soccer players often supplement their training with Jiu-Jitsu. The body control development in Jiu-Jitsu is adaptable in every way. The more traditional benefits of posture, breathing, respect, courtesy and self-discipline makes for a better athlete in both the sport of Jiu-Jitsu and others, as well as improving results in school and academic achievement.
Our boxing classes involve the basics from jumping rope to shadow boxing and includes bag work from the heavy bag to the speed bag. You will learn the footwork, blocks and counters that are all fundamental boxing skills.
The work is quick paced and fun, yet intense and challenging!
At Drago Academy it is believed that we should all harness the "Warrior Mindset" when faced with a potentially dangerous situation. You will learn how to stay mentally focused while implementing the techniques, maneuvers and strategies to help give you the confidence needed to keep yourself and your loved ones from harm. Lets face it, we need to be able to protect ourselves!
What you will find at Drago Academy are not just the skills of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, but a teaching methodology that caters to beginners as well as advanced practitioners. All of our classes are taught in a studious and passionate environment where you can focus and absorb the material in a fun and enjoyable way. When it comes to self defense, the bottom line is that children need the experience of learning a self-defense skill set, and the true confidence that comes with it to better handle confrontation, bullying, and peer pressure.
Adults benefit by staying in shape, feeling grounded, and knowing that they can defend themselves and their children when push comes to shove. At Drago Academy we care about our community and the confidence and wisdom within. A safe, strong, confident family becomes a stronger community and beyond.
