BRAZILIAN JIU JITSU

Schedule

Day: Monday - Friday
Time: 9.00 - 11.00 AM | 6.00 - 8.00 PM
Location: Woodstock

Class details

The concept of techniques based on leverage and angles, not physical attribute, became the core principle of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, or BJJ. To prove how effective the art was, the Gracie Family issued an open challenge to anyone who doubted the applicability of BJJ in a real fight. These challenges, known as “Vale Tudo” (Portuguese for “anything goes”) matches, would become the precursors of today’s MMA competitions.

The Gracie Family fame grew rapidly as their art of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu performed admirably in these challenge matches. In 1993, Helio’s eldest son, Rorion engineered the first Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) in the United States. This was seen as a means to exhibit the effectiveness of the art, and not the practitioner. As such, one of the smallest of the Gracie clan, Royce, was chosen to represent the entire family. To the surprise of many viewers, Royce won three of the first four UFCs, and in the process defeated opponents up to 80 pounds heavier than he was. This success, and effectiveness of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, caused many martial artists to think about the ground fight in a new light as well as how it applies to a realistic combat situation.

The growth of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu since the first UFC has been unrivaled in the history of martial arts. BJJ remains a staple of MMA training, competitions in BJJ have reached professional levels, and practitioners interested in self-defense have embraced it as a valid, effective methodology. Here at Dan Hart Jiu Jitsu, we are proud to be a part of such an amazing history and tradition.

YOGA

Schedule

Day: Saturday
Time: 10.00 AM
Location: Woodstock

Class details

Yoga is a physical, mental and spiritual practice that originated in ancient India. First codified by the sage Patanjali in his Yoga Sutras around 400 C.E, the practice was in fact handed down from teacher to student long before this text arose. Traditionally, this was a one-to-one transmission, but since yoga became popular in the West in the 20th century, group classes have become the norm.

The word yoga is derived from the Sanskrit root yuj, meaning “to yoke,” or “to unite”. The practice aims to create union between body, mind and spirit, as well as between the individual self and universal consciousness. Such a union tends to neutralize ego-driven thoughts and behaviours, creating a sense of spiritual awakening.

Yoga has been practiced for thousands of years, and whilst many different interpretations and styles have been developed, most tend to agree that the ultimate goal of yoga is to achieve liberation from suffering. Although each school or tradition of yoga has its own emphasis and practices, most focus on bringing together body, mind and breath as a means of altering energy or shifting consciousness.
