WELCOME!!! The Marra Senki Jiu-Jitsu Academy is the original Power Team Academy of San Antonio and provides a multi-dimensional approach to martial arts cross training by offering instruction in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, No Gi submission grappling, Judo and Mixed Martial Arts. With the various arts taught, all aspects of self defense are covered to include striking, clinching, throws and proper application of submission holds. This type of training environment will give the student the necessary tools to truly protect themselves in virtually any situation. It provides a common sense approach to self defense, while remaining FUN and providing an invigorating workout.
What is Jiu-Jitsu?
"Brazilian jiu-jitsu is a martial art developed with the concepts of leverage and technique at its core. Because it is easier to dominate an opponent using the floor to assist in balance and control , most of the training in jiu-jitsu takes place on the ground. Being able to dominate and neutralize a larger, more aggressive opponent is a hallmark of the art. This is achieved through ground control positions and leverage-maximizing techniques to dominate and
neutralize a larger, more aggressive opponent.
What can Jiu-Jitsu do for me?
Jiu-Jitsu students develop a deep understanding of the mechanics of the human skeletal and muscular systems. Using this knowledge they are able to subdue an attacker without causing him/her injury, should they so choose. Acquiring these skills is not easy, and requires mental and physical effort on the part of the student. The rewards however, are great, and include massive improvements in stamina, strength, flexibility and mental clarity. In addition to this, social skills are improved as a result of interacting with individuals and the group as a whole.
When are the Classes?
Classes take place six days a week from Monday to Saturday. We offer Private Classes and both morning and evening Group classes. With the many classes currently on our schedule and our flexible Private Class times, you are sure to find something which best suits you. To see the benefits between Group and Private Classes go HERE.
What do the Classes consist of?
We begin class with some light calisthenics and stretching. Following our warm-up we then begin drilling technique. These drills when done over and over help form muscle memory and help our students retain technique. After our drilling is completed we then begin to spar (or roll). Rolling is when students are able to put their techniques to the test with training partners who can resist and counter just as they would in an actual fight, providing valuable real-world experience should the techniques ever need to be applied in an actual fight.
What do I need to start training?
Please feel free to stop by our academy. You are more than welcome to watch one of the classes or better yet, try one of the free introduction classes. To begin you'll only need a generic Kimono (GI), which we sell at the academy. If you are only trying BJJ for a single day, we can loan the kimono for the trial class.
