“Here at Sakura Brazilian Jiu Jitsu students will grow and develop their skills among many avid practitioners of the sport,” says Civello. “Ranging from famous professional fighters to everyday enthusiasts.”
Civello is a dedicated instructor and student of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu who simply wants to pass along the art that was taught to him.
Classes feature a strength and endurance building warm-up, followed by demonstration and practice of techniques after which students engage in live wrestling with other students of their own level. It is a truly demanding workout with a strongly cerebral aspect and a sense of purpose and skill that will truly capture your imagination. Come down to the academy. Come take a look at a class or better yet, take one of the introduction classes. We are confident that jiu jitsu will become one of the most cherished and enjoyable aspects of your life. It will give you a confidence, knowledge and body-dexterity and fitness that few people will ever know.
Sakura BJJ also has a program set up with Big Brothers Big Sisters in that if a Big Brother or Sister joins a program, a Big and Little Brother/Sister get a free GI along with a free membership for the Little Brother or Sister.
“This Saturday will be a great opportunity for people who want to learn more about Jiu Jitsu to be able to get a first hand view of what it is about, and give it a try,” said Civello.
