BRAZILIAN JIU JITSU
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu emphasizes taking an opponent to the ground and utilizing techniques and submissions involving joint locks and choke holds also found in numerous other arts with or without ground fighting emphasis. The premise is that most of the advantage of a larger, stronger opponent comes from superior reach and more powerful strikes, both of which are somewhat negated when grappling on the ground.
BJJ permits a wide variety of techniques to take the fight to the ground after taking a grip. Once the opponent is on the ground, a number of maneuvers (and counter-maneuvers) are available to manipulate the opponent into a suitable position for the application of a submission technique. Achieving a dominant position on the ground is one of the hallmarks of the BJJ style, and includes effective use of the guard position to defend oneself from bottom, and passing the guard to dominate from top position with side control, mount and back mount positions. This system of maneuvering and manipulation can be likened to a form of kinetic chess when utilized by two experienced practitioners. A submission hold is the equivalent of checkmate in the sport, reflecting a disadvantage which would be extremely difficult to overcome in a fight (such as a dislocated joint or unconsciousness).
We at Delaware Combat Sports teach and practice ideals taught by
legendary Gracie Black Belt, Royce Gracie.
Our goal in this program is to create positive, long lasting changes in our students.These changes and improvements will be accomplished through physical and mental conditioning.
Benefits such as: flexability, strength, endurance, coordination and agility will be achieved through physical training. While Karate is very much physical, students will also greatly benifit from mental conditioning. Adults, teens and children will find themselves with increased self-confidence, esteem, discipline, awareness, ethical behavior, social competency and respect.
Along with these physical and mental improvements, students will learn a valuable means of self defense. Using the dynamic techniques of Isshinryu Karate-do, instructors will verse students in concepts and movements that will be effective in almost any thinkable situation.
Students will learn how to set and achieve goals. Parents will notice improvements in thier childrens school work as well as socially. Over time students will begin to build a strong belief in success, that will be easily translated to everyday life.
While teaching, nurturing and believing in our students we hope to instill a great concept of
"SELF FULLFILLMENT THROUGH SELF IMPROVEMENT"
