The Fundamentals classes provide white belts with a solid understanding of key concepts, positions, and techniques in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Each class will focus on a portion of the Alliance Fundamentals curriculum. The class starts with a warmup that may include solo or partner drills. Then the coach will demonstrate several techniques, helping each student leave the class with a stronger understanding of those techniques. At the end of the technique portion, white belts with at least 2 stripes can participate in positionals, while white belts with fewer than 2 stripes will continue drilling technique or work with the coach.
