New Course: Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Foundations for Beginners

Hi everyone,

Today I’m launching something that I’ve been working on for the past 8 months. It’s my new course- The Foundations of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu for Beginners.

It’s a 20 class, flexible course designed with the total beginner in mind. I’m coaching 21 years this year, and I’ve sat in countless classes and seminars, attended coaching symposiums, sat with noted coaches across dozens of disciplines, watched thousands of hours of video, and read I don’t know how many books.

Bruce Lee described the process of learning as chiselling away the non-essentials, and anyone who has achieved the Black belt in Jiu Jitsu will tell you that after a while, it is a process of taking away, rather than adding. This is what this course is all about. The essentials. The Fundamentals. The Foundations.

Not Just a Heap of BJJ Techniques

A lot of beginner courses are just Basic techniques put in a list, but, this course is about HOW you’ll learn, as well as WHAT you’ll learn. The methodology I’m using comes from the accumulated knowledge of those courses, coaches, and my own observations of what works and what doesn’t. Anyone can show you an arm lock or a pin. But it’s how we put that into practice that matters. After all, you can watch YouTube for new technique.

It’s all about the practice. We’re going to teach you how to train. How to get the most out of your time on the mat, and how to progress into the future.

Some notes on the BJJ Foundations course-

The sessions are 3 times per week, but you’ll have flexibility to get to your 20 classes. You’ll check off your classes you’ve done as you go, and because the course runs on a cycle, you can catch up on your missed classes the next time around.

The classes are suitable for the total beginner. You can start at any time in the cycle, and no knowledge of the previous classes is assumed.

Progression is to our Mixed Level Classes, or you can choose to repeat the cycle to drill in the knowledge further.

The course is delivered by my High Level Brown and Black Belt coaches. They all practice what they preach. You’ll see them on the mat training hard every week, and you’ll see them on the competition mats at the top Irish and International tournaments.

The first run of this course begins on Monday, June 10th at 6.30pm. If you’d like to be one of the first to get on this course, use the details below.
