Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Program

November 22, 2010 13 Comments by Amal Easton

If you want to learn Jiu Jitsu, then you’ve come to the right place. Easton BJJ is known for high quality instruction from some of the most talented athletes in the country. With a tradition of student success that can’t be beat, you’ll be proud to train with us.

Why Study Brazilian Jiu Jitsu?

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is the single most effective martial art you can learn for self-defense. Unlike most martial arts, Jiu Jitsu doesn’t rely on size and strength. It’s all about leverage and joint manipulation. A smaller person could easily defeat a much larger and stronger opponent with BJJ. And since 90% of fights end up on the ground, doesn’t knowing a martial art that focuses exclusively on ground combat make sense?

What does BJJ Training in Denver look like?

And if you want to compete in the cage, you know that BJJ makes up a significant part of MMA fighting. From teaching the basics needed for ground-and-pound, to how to make someone tap out from a submission, you have to have a great ground game. It’s the only way you can expect to make it in a match.

An added bonus of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is it will get you in shape. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a physically demanding sport, in that it requires flexibility and endurance. You will be exerting a lot of energy on the mat, and that exertion will help you get in great shape. And with BJJ, exercise is fun, never a chore.

Why Study at Easton?

There are plenty of reasons for studying Brazilian Jiu Jitsu at Easton. For starters, we’ve trained several UFC and MMA competitors such as Eliot Marshall, Duane Ludwig, Tyler Toner, Tyrone Glover, Chaun Sims and more!

Our instructors are world class, and have all demonstrated their amazing skill on the mat. All of them are the recipients of numerous awards from major Jiu Jitsu championships, and they look forward to teaching you the same skills.

More Reasons to Study With Us:

  • Safe- At Easton, you’ll train in a safe and controlled environment, with professional trainers.
  • Fun – Learning BJJ should be fun. You’ll enjoy coming and you’ll want to keep coming back.
  • Legacy – Professor Amal Easton received his black belt from legendary master Renzo Gracie.
  • Health – As you learn BJJ, you’ll find yourself in better health the more you train.

At Easton BJJ, we consider our students a part of our family. We work together and support each other to maximize our training. With the help of your teammates, you’ll achieve levels of success you didn’t know you were capable of.

    Hi, I’d like to let you guys know that I really appreciate the morning classes that have recently started up. I have a very busy schedule all day and most evenings; the early morning fundamentals classes allow me to double the number of days I can train in a week. Also, Ian is a great coach, his classes are fun and engaging. Thanks!

    I started training with Easton BJJ since mid-January 2011 and find it one of the most enjoyable and most effective workouts there is. I’ve improved my overall physical fitness and have fun in the process. Learning this fairly new martial arts form and the skills from the program provides another avenue for me to become more focused and disciplined.

    The staff is very encouraging and knowledgable in their field. I train at both the Denver and Highlands Ranch locations. I find that their approach to training is very effective.

    I’m hooked and can forsee that I’ll be part of the Easton group for the foreseeable future as their student.

      I second Ryan O’Kuinghttons comment about the morning classes. I just wish that there were more morning classes.

    Started last week of August thinking maybe I was too old or too out of shape. Training at Highlands Ranch Littleton has been great. Gaining confidence and shedding pounds, both good for the body and soul! Really appreciate the coaches and “family” at EBJJ-HRL, they make sure it works.

    I have been attending fundamental BJJ classes at the Denver Easton BJJ location for the past eleven weeks. I am totally addicted and there is no other workout like it. I am in the best shape I have been in in the past ten years.The instructors are top notch and share their knowledge of BJJ with great enthusiasm. This is not like a gym membership, it’s more like a family of great people. Professor Larry greets me every time I enter and the others like professor Juinor and the coaches John and Peter are phenomenal at instruction. I want to thank these guys for making a life change for me. Thx Doug.H.

    I was taking classes at the Denver Easton Bjj school from Aug thru Jan, I had to stop due to life circumstances. I would however like to say thank you to all the coaches and professors. Prof Larry King is outstanding in his teaching, professor Junior is amazing and very attentive and has great skills at instructing Bjj, I would like to say that coach John Boyle is outstanding and his teaching and instruction is off the charts, anyone taking his classes should be greatful to have such great instruction, and lastly Coach Peter is awesome at instruction and has a keen eye on cleaning up a persons Bjj game, he should he competes a lot and is also a amazing coach. Thank you all and it was a privilege to train at your facility. I highly recommend it to anyone. Doug H.

    I Live in Casper Wyoming and train under DAVID ADAM VIDAL, not only is he an amazing coach he is a truly amazing human being. Little over 3 month ago I finally decided what am I doing with my life and so I contacted Damond Clark who is a great friend and finally had the courage to do it and the rest is history, I’ve never looked back. I truly never thought I’d enjoy ground work but my striking has gone to the side for now only concentrating on BJJ and I absolutely Love it… I’m not gonna sugar coat this but it is very demanding and to prove it I went from 196 pounds to 166 pounds in 2.5 months, with that a good healthy life style, eating correctly and not over training outside of class. I owe the world to this team and it changed my life and taught me self control in the streets knowing I never have to worry bout anything as I’d just really on my training to defend myself as in the cage to not have to hurt people. That is a wonderful feeling. Thank God for this team and my coaches…J.R. Hunter
