Here are 5 reasons why you should train Brazilian Jiu Jitsu at 5 Star Martial Arts
Shawn Williams is considered one of the top minds and instructors in the martial arts community. He and his team of instructors offer very clear and detailed instruction to help you learn the “how and why” behind the techniques so you can properly execute the moves in both drilling and live training situations. Additionally, our coaches are always walking around during class to help students, answer questions, and provide hands-on teaching and tips to help you learn the skills being taught in class.
Just like any classroom learning environment, the keys to successfully teaching students includes structure and planning so our coaches can provide our students with the foundation and systems for success. Our BJJ program follows a structured, monthly curriculum where you will learn a new set of techniques each month and build upon the techniques in each class. This provides students with plenty of opportunities to practice and drill the techniques while learning more variations and transitions of the same moveset to add to their BJJ toolbox.
One of the most common compliments our academy receives is how friendly and helpful our staff and students are to guests and new members. We have worked hard to build a collaborative, friendly, and safe learning and training atmosphere where everybody is welcomed. We want all members, visitors and guests to feel at home at our academy.
Shawn Williams has been called “The BJJ Encyclopedia” and has covered the biggest professional BJJ events in the world as the lead commentator for FloGrappling. Through his years of training under Renzo Gracie and continually learning new techniques, Professor Shawn is well versed in teaching Brazilian Jiu Jitsu for mixed martial arts, sport Jiu Jitsu, and self-defense in both gi and nogi styles. He incorporates both classic techniques from the Gracie family as well as “new school techniques” for sport Jiu Jitsu.
You can burn 600 or more calories in one Brazilian Jiu Jitsu class. Our classes include calisthenic exercises for warm-ups, BJJ drilling that involves using your entire body as well as moving your training partner, and live training rounds. BJJ has been proven to be a fun and effective way to get a great full-body workout that will get you in shape, improve your strength and conditioning, and enhance your physical and mental well-being.
