Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) today is one of the most popular, fastest growing and practical martial arts practiced; even outside of professional combat, BJJ is taught and used by various military and law-enforcement groups as an effective way to manage and subdue assailants without having to resort to weapons and striking. BJJ is a combat sport focused on grappling and ground fighting. BJJ established its roots when a Japanese Judo Master Mitsuyo Maeda moved to Brazil in the 1914 introduced the art to the Gracie family.
Grappling does not use punches and kicks, but instead focuses on gripping your opponent and taking him to the ground. The unique quality about practising BJJ is that it encourages endless creativity in approaching any sparring match. The rules and regulations in BJJ sparring encourage the practitioner to be a thinking fighter. In Trifecta, we embrace the diversity that BJJ brings to the curriculum of the school and also the range of knowledge it brings to every student. The lessons to be learnt in BJJ go beyond technical capability. We also emphasize greatly on the character building aspects of BJJ as a form of martial arts.
BJJ FOR BEGINNERS
New students are encouraged to start in the beginners classes, to develop an understanding of the basic techniques and terminology such as the guard, base, sweep, and takedown. Our instructors focus on the important of establishing positional control, help beginners develop muscle memory through movement drills, and impact simple sweeps and joint lock and chokehold submissions.

This class focuses on techniques that are executed without the use of the gi, which means that grips vary extensively. Without the dependence of sleeve, belt and other material grips, practitioners work on clinching, hooks, and other dynamic movements that come about with the very nature of no-gi grappling. This side of jiu-jitsu allows one to explore different kinds of guards and attacks that may not usually exist in traditional gi jiu-jitsu.
