Ever heard of Brazilian Yiu Yitsu? There’s a chance that you’ve heard about it when you look at the UFC or MMA. Often you hear that the champions also train Brazilian Jiu Jitsu to improve their ground combat. In Limburg we have had a club for several months where you can train Brazilian Jiu Jitsu under the leadership of Kenny Polmans, current Belgian champion and now also European champion.
Last weekend, the European championship Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Nogi was held in Rome, Italy. Kenny Polmans of Brasa Limburg represented our country in the class up to 67.5kg. He fought his way through the preliminaries to the finals.
In the final he was faced with a strong opponent, the Brazilian Hugo Martins, current world champion, Brazilian champion and 3-time European champion. The first minutes of the party went hand in hand with strong attacks from both sides, in the 4th minute Kenny got the upper hand in the party and was able to secure the victory after a nice arm clamp which forced the Brazilian to give up. The gold was inside for Kenny Polmans.
With Brazilian Jiu Jitsu a kimono is normally worn in the fight just like with Judo. But in the Nogi there is fighting in short and T-shirts, with the same rules. These can be beginners, but also advanced* who are looking for a training location where quality is a primary requirement!
Man or woman, young or old? With us you can practise Brazilian Jiu Jitsu/Grappling as a self-defence sport in exclusively recreational form, but also as a competitive sport by participating in competitions at (inter-) national tournaments…. Where is regularly awarded prizes! You can find out more at https://bjjgireviews.com/
The lessons are generally aimed at training the condition, endurance and techniques, with the aim of improving health and enabling the person to defend himself effectively on the street.
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu/Grappling is also an extremely interesting discipline for women. The chance that a woman will be attacked on the street by a man using stairs and bumps is very small in reality. A man is more likely to hold a woman in a grasp and then force her to the ground. Let the latter be just ‘choirs on the mill’ for someone who is at home in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu/Grappling!
Furthermore, Jiu Jitsu has a relatively large number of locations where you are always welcome to train and our club counts no less than 4 black belts, in addition to the large number of purple and brown banders.
Unfortunately, the number of places at the seminar is limited…so please register as soon as possible!
NOTE: If you belong to the first 5 registrations, you can train for free for a month!
