Women’s Brazilian Jiu-jitsu Class Starting November 1st, 2017
Recently several of our female Brazilian Jiu-jitsu practitioners competed in an all female submission only tournament. Which is super cool. A submission only tournament is where the BJJ competitors roll with one another until one successfully achieves a hold of some sort. Choke hold, arm lock, leg lock, etc.
As a coach I’m very proud of all our or women and their courage to get out there and compete in the spotlight like they did. One of our BJJ Blue Belts was one of the competitors at the U.G.I All Female Submission Only No Gi grappling tournament.
Madison, who is known for being incredibly aggressive with top pressure along with having a strong college wrestling background played this match a little different than normal. During the Brazilian Jiu-jitsu / No Gi Grappling match. She used her top pressure to attack with an ankle lock instead of the grinding guard passing she usually does.
The match was a fast one and she was able to come away with the win during her women’s Brazilian Jiujitsu match. We’re super proud of her accomplishment.
