Impact Zone's Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is under Team ATOS, which is one of the top BJJ teams in the world under Brazilian jiu-jitsu Black Belt world champion André Galvão. The team is arguably one of the most well-trained group of martial artists in the world with many of them holding advanced belts in other types of martial arts.
Impact Zone teaches basic and advanced techniques in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) and submission grappling. Submission grappling is essentially BJJ; however, it is performed without a gi and there are variations in techniques that are used.
BJJ is the ultimate form of ground fighting and incorporates many successful techniques from other martial arts like classical jiu-jitsu and judo as well as wrestling; However BJJ is also excellent in a standing fight because it teaches excellent defensive tactics as well as how to effectively take your opponent to the ground, where the majority of fights end up.
The central premise of BJJ is that with effective technique, one can quickly take a larger and stronger opponent to the ground with success, which makes it a superior form of self-defense. In fact it is routinely taught to law enforcement as a way to effectively control suspects and military special forces as a way to gain the upper hand in hand-to-hand combat.
In the advanced training, a significant amount of time is spent full-contact sparring or "rolling", which hones a fighter's ability to execute his or her game plan successfully. Many of Impact Zone's BJJ coaches and members compete, which is vital if one is looking to become an advanced practitioner of BJJ.
However, the student can learn at his or her own pace and intensity and only perform advanced techniques, spar or compete if they choose to. In fact, students are not allowed to perform these activities until they have a sufficient understanding of the basics of BJJ. BJJ requires excellent conditioning and core strength and training in it as well as taking core conditioning classes gets your body in incredible condition.
