Embarking on the BJJ Journey at Corvo Martial Arts
Every new beginning is a mixture of excitement and uncertainty. At Corvo Martial Arts
, beginners in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) find the experience enlightening and humbling.
Your First Brush with BJJ
For those unfamiliar with physical activities like BJJ, the initial movements can indeed feel foreign. Our modern lifestyles, filled with hours behind desks and screens, often rob us of our physical dynamism. So, when you start doing BJJ, you’ll use muscles that you haven’t used in a while.
Those initial days might leave you with some soreness, but trust the process. It’s just your body’s way of acclimatizing to the new routine. Stretching and warming up are crucial, and at Corvo, we emphasize this to every beginner.
The Choice of Gi and NoGi
Corvo Martial Arts allows you to try both traditional Gi and modern NoGi styles. While there’s no restraint on class selection, beginners can especially benefit from our ‘fundamentals’ classes. We specifically tailor these sessions to provide foundational knowledge crucial for any BJJ practitioner.
The Corvo Welcome
Our front desk team will welcome you and explain gym rules to help you get started easily when you enter Corvo. What sets us apart is our focus on individual attention. Before the class kicks off, our seasoned instructors take a moment to get to know each new student. Once the class starts, we pair beginners with experienced students to ensure a conducive learning environment.
Overcoming Initial Challenges
The path of BJJ isn’t devoid of challenges. One of the most significant barriers beginners face is the will to keep pushing forward.
At Corvo, we understand the difficulties that come with stepping out of one’s comfort zone. To tackle this, we maintain constant communication, discussing challenges new students may face. Continuous encouragement from our supportive community ensures that every student feels valued.
Training at Corvo boosts self-esteem, especially in the first month. Doing an activity with a group of people who want to improve themselves is good for mental health.
A Student’s Perspective
The following review from one of our students perfectly encapsulates the Corvo experience:
“The initial stages of BJJ can be overwhelming, but with Tony and the team at Corvo, I found a place that not only teaches techniques but helps build character. Their approach of marrying technique with mindfulness has been transformative for me.
Despite my physical strength, BJJ has taught me the power of technique over brute force. It’s not about overpowering; it’s about outsmarting, and at Corvo, you learn just that. Each session is a lesson in humility, resilience, and growth.”
Starting BJJ at Corvo Martial Arts is more than just learning a martial art; it’s about finding yourself. Whether it’s Gi or NoGi, each session pushes you to understand your limits, challenge them, and grow beyond them. Corvo guides you in BJJ to improve as a martial artist and as a person.
