The Best BJJ / MMA Academy in Massachusetts

Adult Brazilian Jiu Jitsu

For adults, we run two BJJ classes in a row. The first class is our technique class. This is when we warm up with some light cardio and stretching. The remainder of this class will be drilling the techniques of the day. The second class is our BJJ "sparring" class. We also call this "rolling". For 1 hour we pair everybody and spar for five minutes at a time. It is not mandatory to spar for the entire hour. Many people take breaks throughout the class. Men and women of all skill levels train with each other in these classes.

MMA Western Mass Conditioning

Our Cardio MMA Western Mass class is a 1 hour class. We start off with a warm up that may include running, jumping jacks, jump rope, push ups, high knees, burpees etc ... This class can be described as a mix between the "Insanity" workouts and a kickboxing class. All of our exercise and techniques are timed. 30 seconds of kicking could be 5 kicks for one person and 25 kicks for another. The idea is to push yourself at your own pace. A mix of cardio, punching & kicking is a fun way to lose weight and a great stress reliever.

Kids Brazilian Jiu Jitsu

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu it is an effective, practical martial art that is very applicable to self-defense situations and is also a fantastic way for kids to stay fit. The program at Team Link Ludlow accepts children from 5 to 16 years old. The 1 hour class is designed to instill confidence and self-discipline while improving balance, coordination and mental toughness. Each class includes a warm-up, stretching, technical instruction, games related to BJJ concepts and movements and an instructor-supervised sparring session.
