ABOUT THE CLASS:
What is Jiu-Jitsu?
The word “Jiu-Jitsu” derives from the Japanese “Jū” meaning “gentle” and “Jutsu” meaning “art”; essentially, Jiu-Jitsu is the “gentle art.” Jiu Jitsu is a predominantly ground-based martial art, using the principles of leverage, angles, pressure and timing, as well as knowledge of the human anatomy, in order to achieve a non-violent submission of one’s opponent. Unlike other martial arts that focus on strikes and/or kicks, Jiu-Jitsu focuses on close-contact “grappling” holds and techniques, and the application of chokes and joint-manipulations.
What is Ginástica Natural?
Ginastica Natural is a complete body-weight training method that fuses Jiu-Jitsu ground movements with yoga principles. This training system combines strength and conditioning exercises utilizing body weight, stretching techniques to increase flexibility, simulating animal movements to enhance balance and body control along with meditative breathing exercises. Ginastica Natural benefits both the body & mind, helping you to move better, and in a more flexible and fluid way. Elevate your overall well-being with improved strength, endurance, mobility, core stability, balance, coordination, concentration and breath control.
