Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu involves using your opponent’s strength, force, and aggression against himself in order to defeat him. You make use of body position and leverage to defend yourself. One of the main benefits of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is that anyone can practice BJJ no matter what age or size.
Along with the many physical benefits that lead to an overall improved physical health, there are many hidden mental benefits of martial arts training. For example, the process of learning a new techniques causes increased brain activity and the increased ability of memory recall and concentration. Other mental and emotional benefits include the ability to overcome agression, temper-issue or frustrations. Martial arts training provides a much-needed balance to counteract the frustrations of daily life.
The instructors at Kaju AZ are comfortable blending Kajukenbo with Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu to create a dynamic, exciting program. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu classes are taught at both school locations (in Mesa and Gilbert) and students may attend classes held at both schools.
Professor Kelly Corder receives instruction at the PIT in San Luis Obispo, KORE BJJ in Connecticut, and locally at Arizona Chuan Fa Society (ACS). Kelly Corder is also fortunate to attend training sessions as a guest with Paul Nava, a Nova Uniao black belt with over 11 years of experience.
