Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) - Fighting for Fitness Golborne, Wigan
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is practiced not only by MMA competitors but
by people of all walks of life. It allows a smaller, weaker
person to successfully defend against a bigger, stronger
assailant using leverage and correct technique. Most of the
advantages that come from superior reach and more powerful
strikes when standing are negated when grappling on the ground.
BJJ is recommended for anyone who wants to learn how to defend
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu focuses on submitting opponents without
using strikes. Time-tested training methods allow students to
practice with full speed and power, akin to the effort used in a
real competition, while nearly eliminating the risk of injury.
At Aspinall BJJ, we encourage respectful free sparring (or
rolling) against fellow students and instructors. This provides
students with the opportunity to test and develop their skills
in submission under realistic conditions, while minimising the
risk of injury. Other training methods include technique drills,
in which techniques are practiced against a non-resisting
partner, and isolation sparring, where only a certain technique
or sets of techniques are used against full resistance.
