What is the program schedule?

The Brazilian Jiu Jitsu program for individuals is a 11 week workout program that will take place in a one on one setting with the practitioner which will be followed up at home. Week 1 is an introduction to the program accompanied with baseline testing for mobility, strength, and power relative to positional scenarios experienced in both sports. Following this, clients will come into the clinic once every week for 4 weeks and once every other week for 4 weeks with each session guiding you through the program. The final session will be a debrief along with a retest of the initial objective measures which were tested.
