Jiu-Jitsu is an ancient Japanese combat art including stand up and groundfighting techniques using the science of joint manipulation and body manipulation to overcome your opponent. Modern Jiu-Jitsu has taken many forms. At the Welland Martial Arts Centre, we concentrate on all aspects of the art including stand up fighting, throws and takedowns as well as groundfighting and submission techniques.
We study three levels of the use of force in situations so you can understand the use of appropriate force in controlling a situation. There is not always the need to injure or hurt someone in defence. You will learn how to take control with the minimum amount of force necessary. Through the study of a core system, you willlearn to adapt the art to their individual needs and how to develop fighting strategies and problem solve.
In the regular program, tournament fighting is not taught as the goal of this program is focused on the individual growing to practical self defence in a real situation.
Our Jiu-Jitsu program is non-competitive, allowing you to explore the art at your own pace while learning to adapt the aspects of the art to the ever changing situations you may encounter in real life. You should be prepared to study core curriculum and bring notebooks to help you learn. Leadership qualities, self discipline and the ability to think for yourself are the core of our program.
