Welcome to the next stage of your journey… In Jiu-Jitsu you will never stop learning. The advanced program means that the students have advanced to the next phase of learning.
The Ground Control program structure defines different stages of development for students: the Fundamentals Program and Advanced Program. These stages indicate different levels of the student’s natural progression through the art. The student will progress from the Fundamentals to the Advanced program as he begins to understand the fundamental and basic movements of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.
While the Fundamentals Program focuses on the building blocks and basic principles of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, the Advanced Program is built on higher-level techniques and drills that start shaping the students art through the development of reflexes, speed and reaction time as well as transitions between one technique and another.
A few months into the Ground Control Advanced Program students typically experience a deeper involvement in the Ground Control philosophy, a stronger bond with training partners as well as a more discipline commitment to healthy habits that keep them in good shape and catapult them into their desired lifestyle.
Advanced Program classes are based on a defined class structure and curriculum that take a broad and open-minded approach to learning the art. Students interact with the instructors and other students in a way that all team members will advance to their ultimate goals. With everyone focusing on each other and helping the person next to you in order to better Jiu-Jitsu
