Curious what a Jiu Jitsu Class is like?

Here Are Our Most Common Questions:

Yes. Jiu Jitsu is a martial art based on using leverage, which allows the weaker and lighter individual to beat the stronger and heavier opponent. For this reason Jiu Jitsu is recommended for everyone regardless of your physical condition, age or size.

Training Jiu Jitsu will help improve your physical condition in a fun and dynamic way. While performing the techniques you use your entire body while gaining flexibility and strength as well as burning calories and losing weight.

Safety is imperative at our gym, however accidents can happen like in any other activity. In Jiu Jitsu injuries are usually self inflicted due to the individual performing a technique incorrectly, but our instructors pay close attention and with each repetition the risk declines making Jiu Jitsu an extremely safe sport.

Jiu Jitsu has 2 grading methods depending on the age of the student. Up to 15 years old the student receives the belts white, yellow, orange and green. From 16 and onwards the belts are colored blue, purple, brown and black. At our academy we have a defined grading system where you prepare yourself for your belt exam with a determined amount of completed classes which varies from belt to belt.

The class begins with a warm up which also serves as physical conditioning varying every day among stretching, strength training, mobility, etc. After warming up comes the technical training with repetitions of self-defense, control positions, joint locks and choke movements to name a few of the many Jiu Jitsu techniques taught. And finally we have the free training more commonly known as “rolling”.

10 Reasons To Join

Six Blades Jiu Jitsu Denver 10 Reasons To Join

1.) Jiu-Jitsu is a truly exciting way to get fit!

BJJ is often likened to a game of human chess. If you don’t like to work out at a gym because you get bored, you’re not alone. Many of our students were tired of going to the gym, and they couldn’t find new songs or audio books to entertain them on the treadmill. They found Jiu-Jitsu to be the perfect workout because it requires a high level of concentration proportional to the amount of calories burned and pounds lost. What’s more, you’ll still learn to defend yourself. It’s a win-win situation.
