OUR PHILOSOPHY!

THE APPLICATION OF TRADITIONAL BRAZILIAN JIU-JITSU TRANSCENDS THE PRACTICE OF CHOKES, JOINT LOCKS IMMOBILIZATIONS, THROWS AND STRIKES. A TRUE JIU-JITSU PHILOSOPHY PREPARES MEN, WOMEN AND CHILDREN FOR LIFE, SHOWING THEM PATHS TO A HEALTHIER LIFE AND THE MOST EFFECTIVE USE OF PHYSICAL, MENTAL AND SPIRITUAL STRENGTH. EATING WELL IS JIU-JITSU, TAKING CARE OF YOUR BODY IS JIU-JITSU, SAYING NO TO CIGARETTES, ALCOHOL AND DRUGS IS JIU-JITSU, AS WELL AS KEEPING A CLOSE BOND WITH RELATIVES AND FRIENDS. THIS PHILOSOPHY, CAN BE CALLED A “WAY OF LIFE”.

OUR METHOD!

AT JAY PAGES JIU-JITSU & MMA WE STRIVE TO HELP STUDENTS GET THE MOST OUT OF THEIR TRAINING. FOR STUDENTS WITH CONSISTENCY AND DEDICATION, BRAZILIAN JIU-JITSU BECOMES A LIFE-STYLE AND STUDENTS CAN READILY ENJOY ALL THE BENEFITS OF THE JIU-JITSU OR THE “GENTLE ART”.

WORKING FROM THE ASSUMPTION THAT BRAZILIAN JIU-JITSU MUST BE EMBRACED AS A LIFELONG JOURNEY, PROFESSOR JAY PAGES HAS DESIGNED AN EFFECTIVE LEARNING PLAN OR PROGRAM OF STUDY THAT ALLOWS FOR STUDENTS TO NATURALLY PROGRESS FROM THE WHITE BELT TO THE BLACK BELT. THUS, CLASSES AND THEIR RESPECTIVE CURRICULUM AT JAY PAGES JIU-JITSU & MMA ARE NOT ISOLATED FROM ONE ANOTHER, BUT ELEMENTS OF A LARGER STRUCTURED LEARNING PLAN CALLED “PROGRAMS”.

JAY PAGES JIU-JITSU & MMA/CAIO TERRA BJJ ASSOCIATION PROGRAMS ARE COMPRISED OF SIX (6) MAIN ELEMENTS:

  1. CURRICULUMS: SET OF COORDINATED TECHNIQUES ORGANIZED IN THE BEST POSSIBLE WAY TO FACILITATE STUDENTS’ LEARNING PROCESSES.
  2. PRE-REQUISITE: THE MINIMUM LEVEL A STUDENT MUST POSSESS OR HAVE ACCOMPLISHED IN ORDER TO ENROL IN A SPECIFIC PROGRAM.
  3. CLASS: THE DEFINED PERIOD OF TIME DURING WHICH THE STUDENT LEARNS THE TECHNIQUES THAT COMPRISE THE CURRICULA USING SEVERAL DIFFERENT TRAINING METHODS OR APPROPRIATE INSTRUCTIONAL TECHNIQUES.
  4. TRAINING METHODS: SPECIFIC DRILLS AND TRAINING PRACTICES DESIGNED TO CONVERT THE KNOWLEDGE REPRESENTED IN THE CURRICULA AND TAUGHT BY THE INSTRUCTOR INTO KNOWLEDGE AND SKILLS, INSURING THAT THE STUDENT IS ABLE TO APPLY THEIR KNOWLEDGE AND TECHNIQUES UNDER REAL CIRCUMSTANCES (OR UNDER AUTHENTIC CONDITIONS).
  5. MINIMUM ATTENDANCE: MINIMUM ATTENDANCE REQUIRED FROM THE STUDENT SO HE OR SHE CAN PROGRESS AND BE UPDATED WITH THE CTBJJA CURRICULUM’S.
  6. BELT SYSTEM: HIERARCHICAL RANK STRUCTURE DESIGNED TO REPRESENT STUDENTS’ PROGRESS, ACCORDING TO THEIR OWN POTENTIAL. THE INTERNATIONAL BRAZILIAN JIU-JITSU FEDERATION (IBJJF) RANKING SYSTEM IS USED FOR ALL JAY PAGES JIU-JITSU & MMA PROGRAMS.

ALL JAY PAGES JIU-JITSU ACADEMY STUDENTS HAVE THE DREAM OF BECOMING A BLACK BELT. HOWEVER, THIS IS NOT AN EASY GOAL AND A LOT OF CONSISTENCY AND DEDICATION IS REQUIRED. TO FULFIL THE PROMISE OF FACILITATING STUDENTS’ LEARNING, JAY PAGES JIU-JITSU & MMA PROGRAMS ARE STRUCTURED LOGICALLY TO KEEP STUDENTS MOTIVATED TO LEARN, PRACTICE AND PERFORM.
