Adult Fundamentals, also known as Path to Blue Belt, is our introductory adult jiu-jitsu program. Meeting two times per week for one hour, students learn the 36 self-defense lessons taught at the Gracie Academy in Torrence, CA, plus Pedro Sauer’s white-to-blue curriculum. Stripes are awarded every 20 hours, and after approximately one year students will be prepared to test for their blue belt under a qualified black belt instructor! No experience is required for this class, and it is open to adults, male and female, aged 12-92. Yes, 92! These techniques are designed so that anyone can perform them, regardless of age or sex. Students play positional sparring games and drill the techniques in a series that resembles a realistic attack scenario, all in a safe, clean, padded environment. No matter who you are, you can gain confidence and learn how to protect yourself, both on the feet and on the ground.
