This class utilizes the traditional BJJ uniform or “gi” and is the perfect starting point for anyone new to Brazilian/Gracie Jiu Jitsu. There are gi classes and training offered 5 days a week at various times throughout the evenings. We recommend all beginners attend at least two fundamental gi class per week.
The “gi” being the traditional uniform (jacket & pants).. NO “gi” does not use the uniform. Nogi training attire is grappling shorts and a rash guard type shirt. Nogi grappling tends to be a bit faster pace due to the limited grips (compared to the gi) and other attributes such as athleticism “can” play a bigger role against opponents.
Competition is an optional part of Jiu Jitsu training at QCJJ and can be a great way to test your skill and progress against other opponents. If you’re up for the challenge we have classes and training times to get you prepared.

Training / Sparring is where it all comes together and allows students to develop, test and apply learned techniques under various levels of resistance. All sparring and drilling are controlled and executed with the safety and well being of all students at the forefront of the training exercises.
