Jiu Jitsu Tournaments

MMA students at the Valor & Virtue Martial Arts Academy LLC regularly compete in no-gi grappling events at local Jiu-Jitsu tournaments. This provides students an opportunity to gain experience going head-to-head with other Jiu-Jitsu practitioners in a competitive environment. We feel that it is important for our MMA students—who are trained to control opponents with punches, kicks, knees, and elbows—to step out of their area of expertise, and into an arena where they cannot rely on their striking skills. This ability to adapt to the Jiu-Jitsu sport environment is a great metaphor for life as there are many situations where one must perform under less-than-ideal circumstances.
