Kimura Adults Brazilian Jiu Jitsu & Martial arts in Boston, Watertown, Taunton, Tewksbury
We offer Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu classes for men and women of all levels and ability from novices with no previous experience to the most advanced practitioners of the art.
Because BJJ is not a “striking” art, size, power, strength, or athleticism are not pre-requisites for success in learning and applying BJJ techniques. At Kimura BJJ Boston, our training programs are designed to teach students the necessary skills that can be used for both self-defense and for sport.
Our beginner classes are designed to teach the fundamental techniques of BJJ that will serve as the foundation for all future learning and more advanced development.
Students at the beginner level will also begin to develop their own, personal BJJ style to best suit their individual preference and body types.
Quite often some of our more advanced students will attend our beginner classes to train with and help our newer students develop their skills. This gives our beginners multiple resources to tap into as they work to advance.
Our Advanced classes are structured to hone and refine the skills students learn at the beginner level and further develop their technique to a level of mastery.
All Level classes are open to our students ranked Blue Belt or higher and offer an outstanding opportunity for both developing and advanced practitioners to benefit by training together.
Advanced students in our All Level classes also continue to develop and refine their personal BJJ style and add new positions and techniques to expand their own arsenal as they work toward mastery.
Some of our students enjoy challenging themselves by testing their skills in organized competition. For those students with an interest in competing there are opportunities in all Kimura classes to train and prepare for competition.
We are extremely proud of our record of success in BJJ competition and Kimura students are widely recognized in the tournament world as being extremely well prepared and possessing a never quit attitude. No competition team better exemplifies team unity and team spirit than Team Kimura BJJ Boston!
Women- BJJ Training and Empowering Women:
Women choose to train in martial arts for a variety reasons: fitness, stress reduction, a sense of empowerment, and competition to name just a few. However, learning self-defense is by far the most common reason women choose to train in martial arts.
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is almost tailor made for women as a method of self-defense as it was developed from its origin to neutralize any advantage of power, size, or strength.
At Kimura BJJ Boston we find that having males and females train together in the same classes, offers our female students the advantage of gaining very real and practical experience in actually applying what they learn, in scenarios that replicate threats they might encounter by would be attackers in real life. Simply put there is no better self-defense training for women than Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, and of course fitness, stress reduction, a sense of empowerment, and competition are among many of the other benefits students of either gender can realize when training in BJJ.
