Tim Burrill Brazilian Jiu Jitsu

Providence, RI - 02905 | (401) 374-5759

Details: Tim Burrill BJJ is a center for learning the dynamic martial art of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. BJJ is a modern adaptation of the 2000 year old martial art of Japanese JuJitsu. Things have changed rapidly over the last 100 years in our culture yet very few martial arts have grown with the times. Machado Jiu-Jitsu, created by the famous Machado Brothers, offers a very modern twist on self-defense. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu’s fundamental fight strategy is to take the attacker to the ground, establish control, and end the conflict on the ground. A startling number of fights will end on the ground. How do I know this? Striking with the hands or feet requires that the distance between opponents is carefully managed so that both can strike on target. The moment one fighter decides to take a step back, or forward, it becomes very difficult for the other person to land quality blows without the proper spacing. Too much distance and strikes can’t reach the target. Too little distance between fighters and you can’t build enough momentum to get in a powerful shot. In fact, it takes professional boxers years to learn how to manage the distance in a fight. If the distance between fighters is managed properly a BJJ Practitioner can take an attacker to the ground without injury. Once the fight hits the ground all the rules change.
