GB San Clemente Jiu-Jitsu Black Belt Classes were carefully designed for the advanced students who are serious about their training and accomplishing their goals through BJJ”
– Professor Ricardo Almeida, Technical Director
Gracie Barra San Clemente Jiu-Jitsu has recenlty implemented a significant change on its schedule and class structure. Our spring class schedule brought a lot of innovations like the study hall class on fridays, the belt testing for our kids and the new 2 hours black belt classes.
The later is a result of a few months of discussion and research from our team of Professors. Most of the changes were made to allow students to practice the same movement for a longer period and allowing them to experience how it is done under real situation. Students and instructors can learn by doing and get deeper into each technique.
I am very excited with this new class structure. The way I was teaching before I could only explore the movement at one level. Some students would learn it and stop and get frustrated at the first defense or counter to the original movement. The beauty of the new methodology is that I can see what is working and not working and draw conclusions, give students more variations and options as they become more confident in incorporating the desired technique into their games.
Says Professor Flavio Almeida, our Head Instructor
The pace of our black belt class is also different. This class is non stop. There is no sitting on the side, unless the student really needs to rest. “The flow of the class has been carefully designed so we do not waste any second” – Says Professor Felipe Guedes our Chief Instructor.
The second hour of class is fully dedicated to jiu-jitsu sparring. The training session goes on with a variety of different sparring drills to focus on strategy, stamina, cardio and endurance.
