Framework BJJ offers both group and individual training opportunities depending on your goals. Group classes are separated into Gracie Basics (Beginner Program) and the Black Belt Program (Mixed Levels). All sessions are inclusive, ego-free, and taught with energy and attention to detail. We believe in providing our students with a proper foundation in the fundamentals to ensure longevity and enjoyment.
The Gracie Basics is our Beginner program which is open to ANYONE regardless of experience level, physical ability, or background. We will explore all the techniques and strategies that were proven effective by the Gracie Family to allow a smaller, weaker individual to defend his or herself against a larger, stronger opponent in a real fight, but in an environment that is controlled, safe, and structured. This program is based on a 12 week cycle that continually repeats giving students the opportunity to experience these foundational lessons as many times as necessary until the movements become smooth and efficient.
Gracie Basics is designed so that new students can begin at any point in the cycle and not be lost or overwhelmed by the material. These classes are about one hour long and take students from absolute beginner to sparring-ready while adhering to an organized and time-tested curriculum.
Black Belt Program
This program is open to any student who has completed one cycle of Gracie Basics or has prior submission grappling experience and wishes to begin working through the Official Belt Ranks of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu which include White, Blue, Purple, Brown and Black. This is also where students begin sparring and learning to apply their techniques against skilled and resisting “opponents” in a safe and ego-free environment. Students will discover the additional benefits of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu training such as increased fitness, focus, confidence, relief from outside stress and community connection. The physical skills developed in this program are what distinguish Jiu-Jitsu from all other martial arts in terms of practical effectiveness, not to mention fun!
Unlimited access to Gracie Basics is included in this program and students are encouraged to attend GB classes even after upgrading to the Black Belt Program.
Private lessons are made by appointment and can be scheduled to suit your needs. These lessons are great as an Introduction to Jiu-Jitsu, as Tournament Prep sessions, for improvement in overall performance on the mat, or for more advanced Self Defense training. Private lessons may also be preferable for students who desire less social interaction than that found in group classes.
If you’re interested in scheduling a private lesson with one of our Instructors contact us. You can also get an idea of what our daily training consists of by following us on social media. (Links above!)
