Club is open to all individuals regardless of experience. We are always looking to expand as a club and it is through new people like you that helps us do this
We typically begin each session with stretching, calisthenics and grappling related drills. The next hour is dedicated to learning and practicing technique. Questions about precious techniques or problems students have been having are typically answered during this time.
Each session has a specific theme, strung together by the type of technique or by a specific strategy or position. All the techniques are relatively simple to apply, but an extensive amount of detail is involved in each of them. For this reason, 6 techniques is a natural maximum for each class.
Students are encouraged to practice quality in their techniques, and for this reason, they spend a great deal of time drilling each one.
The rest of the session is devoted to free sparring. Sparring is never required and beginners should feel no pressure to spar. When they do it is recommended that they spar with and experienced member of the club who can answer their questions and practice appropriate control when applying and moving through techniques.
Last but not least, signing the attendance sheet helps us prove our worth as a student organization. This means we get to train in the significantly bigger and better mat room (HPER 095).
