Can a Jiu-Jitsu student learn more and learn faster? Is it beneficial to have one-on-one time with my instructor?

Jiu-Jitsu is like any other sport or activity: your progress is a consequence of how hard and how smart you work. Group classes are the best proven way to teach Jiu-Jitsu, since the diversity of training partners creates more and different challenges allowing a student to improve more quickly. However, private classes are definitely an essential complement that no serious Jiu-Jitsu student should do without.

The individual attention and approach that a 30 or 60-minute session with one of our instructors provides can and does lead to significant improvement in a student’s Jiu-Jitsu game flow.

It is highly recommended that all students take at least one private lesson per month to review techniques and address specific challenges in his or her Jiu-Jitsu game flow.

Your private classes will be specifically designed to fit your needs and goals. To get started contact your GB School’s staff and explain that you’d like to take private classes. They will set an appointment with an available instructor so he or she can evaluate and build a program for you. There are many options available but students typically prefer a package of 10 classes since it offers the highest value and benefits.
