We are adding some new programs! Team Chitwood is known for more than just the Brazilian Jiu-jitsu that is taught in Lewis Center. We are highly qualified experts in multiple forms of martial arts and training, and we are bringing those programs here!
What Are the New Programs?
Adult Co-ed Self Defense
Even though 85% of assaults go to the ground, 100% of them start on your feet. This class will cover all self-defense elements from Combat Jujitsu and Gracie Jiu-jitsu focusing on standing self defense and escapes from grabs, holds, tackles, headlocks, chokes, assaults with fists, sticks, guns & knives.
Did you know that the 3 Chitwood Brothers are also accomplished strikers? Our kickboxing program is one of the most popular offerings at our Lexington Academy and it’s coming here! This is not your neighbor’s Tae Bo or Title Boxing class! Plan on learning real technique while breaking a sweat, killing calories, and becoming uber efficient on your feet. Class will consist of rope work, body weight exercises, mit work and partner drills. Can you say awesome?
Advanced Gracie Brazilian Jiu-jitsu
Gracie Brazilian Jiu-jitsu is the epitome of chess on the mat. Like chess, it takes a lifetime to master. Though we work on beginner, immediate, and advanced concepts in our daily Gracie Brazilian Jiu-jitsu classes, we will gather the future mat chess masterminds once per week to share our advanced knowledge. Rank restriction will be for Purple Belt and up but as we open this program anyone who is a 2nd degree Blue Belt and above may attend.
You have spoken and we have listened! In addition to adding more classes, we are offering more synergistic scheduling. We have altered the schedule to make attendance days more logical, and classes more consistent.
Little Dragons will be consolidated to Tuesday and Thursday at 5pm.
Kid-jitsu Beginner and Advanced Thursday classes have moved to Saturday to offer a weekend option for your busy schedules!
Teen Gracie Jiu-jitsu will be on a better set schedule of Tuesday and Thursday, for those of you who have busy weekends with other extracurricular activities. The class is slightly shorter but will cover the same amount of instructional time. For extra grappling time after technique, we still encourage our Teens to participate in the Saturday Open Mat.
We understand that this new schedule will not be perfect for everyone. However, we have the best interest of the majority student base in mind (requests you have made, schedule concerns you have, and programs we want you to experience).
Please spread the word to family, friends, coworkers, and neighbors about our new programs to help us grow and keep them on the schedule!
