Your Child’s First BJJ Class
A typical class starts with warm-up exercises, stretches, and drills. Once everyone is warmed up, the instructor demonstrates the technique. After showing different angles and answer any questions, the students are paired off to practice the technique while the instructor walks the mats and help those needing individual attention. After everyone has an understanding of the first technique, a second technique may be shown. Towards the end of the class, there may be specific training or live sparring. Specific training starts at a particular position, with different goals for both students, or trying to apply the technique learn to a live partner. Live sparring is when you can incorporate all of the techniques that you may have learned and try to apply them to a live partner.
