BEGINNER AND ADVANCED CLASSES

All beginner BJJ students and White belts will start in our Fundamentals Class in order to learn the basic positions and techniques. You will learn how to defend yourself against someone who does not have fighting skills, on the streets or real life situations. Upon completion of Fundamentals training, students will have a basic understanding of self-defense.

ADVANCED CLASSES
(BLUE BELT & ABOVE)

BJJ students who want to pursue higher belts will continue in our Advanced Classes to learn how to defend themselves against someone who has fighting skills. Also, students at this level can apply their training in competition and tournaments, if they desire. This process of perfecting your BJJ techniques continues through the black belt level.

BRAZILIAN JIU JITSU FOR SELF DEFENSE,
COMPETITION, OR HEALTH & FITNESS

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a martial art and combat sport that teaches a smaller person how to defend themselves against a larger adversary by using leverage and proper technique. Jiu-Jitsu teaches very important self-defense techniques that may help to save a person’s life if caught in a situation with a physically aggressive opponent. When a person knows how to defend themselves physically, they feel more confident.

At all X3 Sports locations there are a wide variety of all belt levels so there is always someone with similar experience and others who will challenge you to improve your skills. All our instructors are experienced black belts, which means there is always something to learn.

ACHIEVE LIFE-CHANGING RESULTS

Every Saturday at 11:00 a.m., all three of our black belt professors and their students gather at one location to train together as a team. Our Unified Classes offer a fun, team-building atmosphere for learning and competitions, as well as provide a variety of training partners for everyone and access to top instructors from each club. All belt levels are welcome! Each month, the location rotates to ensure convenience for everyone. Check our Unified BJJ Schedule for where we are meeting this upcoming Saturday.
