It is the “ground game,” as the members “fondly” call it. While CROSSTRAIN offers stand up martial arts, this completes the fighter’s combat training. The blend of the two is essential because an MMA fighter starts stand up with kicks and punches and ends up with grappling on the ground.
CROSSTRAIN fight club brings Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) to members over the original, Japanese Jujutsu because in competitive fights today, it is more popular and far more impactful.
BJJ endorses the notion that a smaller person can defend a bigger, stronger person with the use of proper technique and leverage. The aim is to take the fight to the ground by applying joint-locks and chokeholds to defeat the other fighter.
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is more than just a combat sport; it is also a mind and strategy game. The whole idea is to not let your energy get spent in the first thirty seconds of a fight. The more you practice, the stronger the ability to strategize a move and therefore smarten your own game.
With the rise in eyeballs on MMA because of the UFC and now with the recent introduction to MMA India with SFL, BJJ is at a nascent but noticeable space in the country.
CROSSTRAIN brings together the whole fighter package with the best trainers available to quench the thirst of the fighter within you.
