Jiu Jitsu (BJJ ) school are called ‘schools’ or ‘academies’ and not ‘gyms’ because they are in fact more in line with educational institutions and schools than with gymnasiums in the traditional sense.
Jiu Jitsu schools teach discipline, order and respect in an otherwise chaotic combat sports environment. For those uninitiated, Gracie Jiu Jitsu or Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, is a martial art based around the premise that technique and leverage can overcome brute strength and aggression. Made famous by the Gracie family specially Helio Gracie who was a frail man who could not even do a pull up all through his life. He however understood the concept of technique and leverage and used that to fight a number of fighters from several martial arts and was able to prove the effectiveness of Jiu Jitsu whenever the fight went to the ground.
Another example of the Gracie family was the very first UFC event where the smallest fighter in an otherwise open weight tournament Royce Gracie, was able to strangle all of his opponents ; all of whom were from different martial arts and all of whom were physically much bigger and stronger than Royce.
At a Jiu Jitsu School like Crosstrain Fight Club, every student is taught the core principles of Jiu Jitsu that make kids bully proof and women- empowered via self defence. In a country like India, and city like Delhi where rape and kidnapping are so rampant, Jiu Jitsu is in essence the need of the hour for women and children.
Crosstrain Fight Club has empowered over 5000 women and kids since our inception in 2012.
Once you have trained at Crosstrain you will realise the camaraderie and respect that everyone has towards each other. We don’t have trainers, we have teachers and coaches who teach classes and seminars at Crosstrain unlike a gym where one goes, lifts weights and leaves. At Crosstrain, coaches ensure one learns the most effective techniques which would be useful in real life scenarios (like street fights).
