We firmly believe in the principle at the core of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu: A competitor of any size can be defeated through the proper use of leverage and technique.Given the explosive growth of interest in the Mixed Martial Arts through events such as the UFC, fitness facilities across the country are suddenly jumping into the ring by offering Brazilian Jiu Jitsu instruction. However, the key questions that you should ask yourself in choosing a class are:
- How competent and experienced are the instructors? How far from the source is the teacher’s knowledge of the guiding principles of technique over strength? At Daniel Beleza Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, our instructors are all taught directly by Daniel Beleza, a third-degree Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Black Belt.
- Does your instructor take into account your underlying interest in studying the martial arts? Does he tailor the training to meet your personal needs – whether your primary goal is to engage in competition, improve your overall fitness level, or increase your understanding of self-defense? At Daniel Beleza Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, we understand that everyone has a unique set of motivations and abilities, and – as such – we account for these differences in teaching all of our classes.
