Welcome to Combative Jiu Jitsu...
It is no secret to the success of what is known as
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and to the Gracie family that
brought this to the world in these modern times. I
have a healthy respect for ALL Martial Arts, and by
no means look down on any other style or form.
Here is a brief description to what Combative Jiu
Jitsu (CJJ) is all about and whom it is for. The
training facility is located in Chino Valley, AZ. In
the beginning stages the focus will be on equipping
individuals in very simple and straightforward
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu techniques that are most effective
and primarily used in COMBAT, or a typical street
fight. Other techniques, such as Krav Maga, or as I
like to call it, dirty fighting, will be evaluated and
added as we proceed forward. There will be
instruction on weapon defense; be it a club type
weapon, knife, firearm, etc. There will be classes
for Law Enforcement and high risk personnel as well.
Their training will only differ in respect to the
equipment they carry on a daily basis and the unique
scenarios they encounter. I believe that good moral
civilians should receive the best instruction even
though they are not in Law Enforcement or the
Military. When the chips are down, we are all in it
Also, we have an OPEN Floor Policy, which means that
you are free to ask questions, make comments, and of
course share or try any moves that you may know or want
learn. Ego and aggressive type attitudes will NOT be
tolerated. We will show mutual respect to one another.
Everyone has something to teach, share, and add to the
Combative Jiu Jitsu (CJJ) is for anyone that wants
to be able to handle themselves with confidence,
whether standing or on the ground where most
fights end up. CJJ can be added to any other style
of Martial Art or fighting experience you possess.
CJJ is perfect for those of you that have no
experience as well. CJJ is not based on strength or
height, but leverage and technique. It can be taught
to men, women, and children. In the future, classes
will be added geared toward children and women’s
self defense. Private and group lessons can also be
arranged at the CJJ Training Facility in Chino Valley,
AZ or brought to your location. Instruction will be
tailored based on your particular needs because
some industries have different challenges than others.
The instruction will be informal, but structured. In
other words, you will feel comfortable and have fun
while learning. The teaching style is COMMON
sense based. You can be well armed, but if you are
unaware of your surroundings you have already lost
the fight before it even started.
For more information, call 928-583-3383.
I want to keep things as affordable as possible, so
our current drop in rate of instruction will be $10 per hour
and $20 per hour for private lessons. There are
NO contracts, NO sign up fees, and any prepaid
classes will NOT disappear at the end of the month.
In other words, if you prepay for 4 classes and only
take 2 classes that month, you still have 2 classes
you can take the following month, etc. Monthly Specials do
NOT roll over each month because of the extra discount
you are receiving upon our already LOW prices.
Attire will be shorts, sweat pants, GI pants, and a
tee-shirt. CJJ tee-shirts can be purchased if you like.
S.P.A.R.(Synergistic, Practical Application, Reflex and
Development) Classes can be attended by those
that have been through the cycle twice, or if the
instructor believes the student is ready, or has
enough previous experience in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.
You are allowed to wear your full GI and earned
colored belt from your current or previous martial
arts school. You choose what is most
comfortable for you. It is highly recommend that
women wear some type of support sports bra.
Mouth guards will be required for S.P.A.R.
Classes, groin protection and ear protection is
optional. Finger and toe nails will be trimmed,
and NO earrings, nose rings, body piercing
jewelry, chains, or rings with protrusive
stones will be allowed. Plain wedding bands are
okay, but not recommended. These rules are for
your protection and the protection of others. The
last thing you want is for your jewelry to be broken
or ripped out from its original body part.
Trimmed nails will keep you from scratching
others and from being scratched. Long pretty
nails are not so pretty when they get bent back,
and/or broken off.
There are currently NO earned belts in CJJ. You
are a beginner, intermediate, or advanced. Belts
are for holding your pants up, and securing your
firearm, whether it be concealed or open carried.
This is our personal philosophy and NOT meant
to put down ANY martial arts schools that have a
colored belt system. This is not set in stone, and
we might entertain a colored belt system in the
future, maybe. :)
CJJ will be offering firearms training and knife training as
well. Stay tuned for the upcoming training days!
