The Universal Academy offers a complete Drysdale Jiu-Jitsu instruction program that incorporates excellent technique, live sparring, competition training and fitness. Although our classes are intense and vigorous, our instructors recognize that each student is an individual with unique goals and will progress at their own rate in accordance to their athletic and martial arts background and fitness level.
In general, our classes are formatted as follows: students participating in Jiu-Jitsu classes can expect a friendly and structured environment focused on learning basic to advanced techniques and principles of Drysdale Jiu-Jitsu. Students will be taught all aspects of Jiu-Jitsu including self-defense with emphasis on technique and leverage over physical size and strength.
Our Jiu-Jitsu classes typically begin with a warm up to promote physical conditioning and mobility, then students are paired with a partner or split into groups to learn and practice techniques taught by the instructor.
Classes usually end with some light drills and free training and are always taught and supervised by a qualified instructor with the student’s safety in mind.
