Students interested in joining the BJJ club for the spring 2024 semester, can contact the club president, Jack Shea at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit their OwlNet page, https://keene.presence.io/organization/keene-state-brazilian-jiu-jitsu for more information.
Jiu Jitsu is a grappling sport, so no striking (punches, kicks, knees, elbows etc.) The focus is on position control and dominance, as well as choke holds and joint manipulation (making people tap out). No experience is required as most of the members are new to martial arts.
The club meets once a week in the mat room in the gym. These sessions are taught by Peter Greene. He owns Flow Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. If you’re a member of the club, you can go and train at Flow Brazilian Jiu Jitsu for free any day of the week.
Established in 2008, Keene State College Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a non-discriminant student run organization focused on empowering our community through self defense and self confidence. Students of any age, gender, background, or athletic ability are invited to attend class at any time, no previous experience required.
