Why Choose Dojo Americana for Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu?

Because in the Real World, You Need to know Self Defense Jiu-Jitsu...

The popularity of jiu-jitsu has grown incredibly in the past 5 years. With this explosion in popularity, more and more schools are focused on teaching the sportive techniques of jiu-jitsu, the techniques that will help make them win at tournaments. Sport techniques are great for tournaments where striking is NOT allowed, but in the real world and in MMA, your opponent and adversaries will be trying to punch and kick you. Sport techniques don't take into consideration an adversary striking at you. This is why not all sport techniques are ideal for use in real self-defense situations--especially when striking is involved.

The best way to prepare yourself for street situations is to practice in a way that mimicks those situations--situations where someone is attacking you with kicks and punches. If you're not practicing for these type of situations, then you're not getting the most out of your jiu-jitsu. In sport jiu-jitsu, there are a lot of techniques that are NOT allowed, so one can easily develop a false sense of secuirty since they are not accustom to street techniques such as punches and slams. In sport, slams and punches are not allowed, so they are not practiced for in most jiu-jitsu schools and gyms.

Training sport only, doesn't allow you to build up the timing and reflexes to effectyively deal with striking adversaries. This isn't ideal if you want the best jiu-jitsu training for Real World Self Defense. If you're looking for the best all-around jiu-jitsu, that covers self defense and sport, then make us your first choice.

Because in the Real World, You Need Good Takedown Techniques

Having good takedowns allows you to be in control of a fight whether you're standing or on the ground. As good as jiu-jitsu is for self defense, most schools don't practice enough throws and takedowns. Why? Because nowadays, most schools are geared for competition and in competition it's takes less work pulling guard (going to the ground voluntarily) and going to the groud right away. On the ground a sweep is worth 3 points versus 2 points for a takedown. But in the street, the top position is preferred. On the bottom you are more prone to kicks, punches and slams. In the street a good takedown or throw can easily end a confrontation/fight.

Practicing takedowns and throws on a regular basis is vital if you want to be good at getting someone to the ground, which is not always going to be easy, especially against a stronger and more athletic person--unless you have good takedowns. In the street, there is no reason to be on the bottom of the guard if you can be in the top position. Sure having a good guard is very important, but in the street, if you have a choice then why be on the bottom of the guard if you can be on top?

This is another great reason to choose Dojo Americana for your jiu-jitsu training.

If You Are Attacked and End Up on the Ground What Would You Do?

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is the Ideal Martial Art for Women.

At Dojo Americana the foundation of our self defense system is the martial art of Brazilian jiu-jitsu.  BJJ is an ideal martial art for self defense because it is based on technique, proper body positioning and leverage–not strength or power.  Because of this, it is the perfect martial art for women. Since men are physically stronger than women, the chances of a woman ending up on the ground when attacked are very likely–especially if it is a surprise attack from behind. Therefore, it only makes sense for a women to learn how to defend themselves from attacks that are very likely to end up on the ground.

In Brazilian jiu-jitsu you will learn how to defend against various choke-holds, grabs, and other situations that are likely to occur in an attack.  You will learn to fight on the ground as well as how to prevent yourself from being taken to the ground. You wil also learn submission techniques, such as choke-holds, arm-locks and more.
Don’t allow yourself to be a victim.
