The Javier Vazquez Jiu Jitsu fundamentals course, taught at the academy in Rancho Cucamonga, California is specifically designed for beginners. This consists of 24 jiu jitsu classes & lessons preparing students for the most common street fight scenarios both before (Standing Self Defense) and after you know you are in a fight. The Strike-Based Jiu Jitsu Classes cover standing confrontations both face to face and attacks from the rear. We discuss: Tackle Defenses, Collar Grabs, Throat Grabs, Wall Pins and Wall Choking Scenarios, Headlocks both standing, against a wall and on the ground, Distance Management from standing and ground positions, Strike Defense from both the standing and ground positions, Basic Clinching, Takedowns and Throws, Escapes from the Mount and Side Mount Positions and Basic Submissions from the Mount and Guard Positions. The foundation for this course was the Gracie Jiu Jitsu Fundamentals course passed down from Carlson Gracie to Javier Vazquez and by which Javier Vazquez was certified. Javi has since customized the course reflected in the Strike Based Jiu Jitsu specialty. Self Defense Classes in Rancho Cucamonga
