Hartford Brazilian Jiu Jitsu fanatics welcome.  GirouxBros is located in Glastonbury, CT. Glastonbury Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is hosted at GirouxBros Martial Arts, 160 Oak Street, Unit 210, Glastonbury, CT 06033. 

 

How are we different? 

 

1.        You will learn Hartford Brazilian Jiu Jitsu from a structured curriculum.  You won’t just show up and work on whatever that coach feels like doing that day.  Glastonbury Brazilian Jiu Jitsu at GIROUXBROS teaches takedowns, setups for takedowns, top game positions, guard passing, guard fighting (mainly open guard variations), sweeps & reversals from bottom, offense and defense in sprawl position, and escapes from all of these.

 

Glastonbury Brazilian Jiu Jitsu at GIROUXBROS curriculum takedowns are mainly wrestling takedowns and judo throws for no-gi.  Single leg variations, ankle shoot, double leg variations, arm drags, duck under, fireman carry, shoulder throw, hip throw, and stomach throw.

 

Hartford Brazilian Jiu Jitsu at GIROUXBROS curriculum top game is positional control in side control, cross body side, side mount, scarf hold, headlock, north-south, knee on belly, mount, rear mount (back), and modified positions between these major positions. 

 

Glastonbury Brazilian Jiu Jitsu at GIROUXBROS guard passes include posture & how to break open a closed guard, double underhook, bullfighter, knee punch through, nut cracker, and sumo step passes.

 

Hartford Brazilian Jiu Jitsu at GirouxBros guard fighting includes fundamentals to opening your closed guard, breaking your opponent’s posture down, using your legs and arms for constant pressure as you move to traditional open guard, hooks guard, butterfly guard, spider guard, and variations of open guard.  Once you learn how to control an opponent in your guard it is time to look at guard as OFFENSE and setup sweeps/reversals and/or submissions – triangles, armbars, shoulder locks, & chokes.

 

Glastonbury Brazilian jiu jitsu sweeps & reversals covers scissor, hooking, armdrag to reverse roll, spider tie-up, ˝ guard sweeps, as well as sweeps against a standing opponent – front, back, open guard hooking, open guard reaping sweeps.

 

Hartford Brazilian Jiu Jitsu at GirouxBros sprawl position techniques include guillotine choke, Peruvian necktie choke, rolling T choke, rolling collar choke when in gi.

 

2.         Private lessons for everyone.  Glastonbury Brazilian Jiu Jitsu at GirouxBros memberships include weekly group classes + 1 private lesson monthly.  That is all included in the monthly fee.  Private lessons are important to build a game suited to your skill set & body. 

 

3.         Friendly & helpful mat culture.  Hartford Brazilian Jiu Jitsu at GirouxBros is an academy where you won’t feel intimidated.  We are not an MMA school.  We are not a meat market school where you are just a number.  Our adult program is for men and women of all ages.  The training culture is friendly and helpful.  No experience is needed although members from other arts are welcomed.  The only requirements are an open mind & and a commitment to doing your personal best.  Students are expected to attend training regularly in order to advance.   

Get in great shape and learn self-defense skills that could save your life!  A typical workout involves warm-up, positional drills, and focus on one area/aspect of BJJ. 

ALL students spar/train with a resisting partner.  Resistance starts low and increases as the student progresses.  Free sparring (w/ competitive rules) is optional and reserved for students who have completed the "Basic 24" positional controls, escapes, & submissions.  Safety is priority #1...why slam each other around if you don't know the techniques.  That type of training tends to build bad habits.  Master the basics and then use them live!
