Union Team BJJ Class Descriptions:

Integrated Grappling

At Union Team BJJ, our goal is to provide a curriculum that is well rounded and gives our students the competitive edge. Our Integrated Grappling classes focus on teaching the most effective throws and takedowns from Judo, Sambo, and Wrestling focused on transition to Ground Fighting. With one of the highest levels of experience and knowledge as an 8th degree Jiu Jitsu Black Belt, Master Ricardo Murgel is a Judo black belt since 1974 and has extensively studied and trained in a variety of Grappling styles, such as Wrestling, Sambo and Sumo. Since every fight starts from standing, this is an integral part of how to differentiate yourself as a true, well rounded Jiu Jitsu practitioner. This class is open to all Levels! Join us every Tuesday and Thursday at 6:30pm and take your Jiu Jitsu skills to the next level!

Young Warriors (8 to 16 yrs old)

There are two class groups for students ages 8-16 years of age. The focus of this class is to teach students how to protect themselves from bullying through the power of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu! Our method focuses on martial arts development by thoroughly teaching the anatomy of each technique as well as by consistently practicing moves in order to build muscle memory. Through muscle memory, students will be able to defend themselves from bullies in real life situations without having to remember what they learned. Classes also focus on building integrity, character, and good morals in every student. Students are taught to use what they learn in each class for SELF DEFENSE PURPOSES ONLY and are otherwise taught to treat their peers with respect. Students are split up by age groups (8-12 years Young Warriors and 13-16 years Young Warrior Teens on different days) so that they can learn Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu in a safe and controlled manner. 

*Classes require a Gi, a.k.a. Kimono.


Jiu Jitsu Intermediate/Advanced

Our Jiu Jitsu All Levels class teaches students continues to build on the current Fundamentals curriculum but with more advanced techniques and training in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu to be the absolute best competitors they can be.

*Classes require a Gi, a.k.a. Kimono.
