The trip back to Island Top Team was inspiring in oh so many ways.One thing that really stayed with me: the one-hour class structure. After re-experiencing how well that worked, I’ve decided to apply the same structure to Solarte’s classes. I also want to ensure we have a schedule that benefits as many people as possible. So these are the main changes to the schedule effective immediately:
Sequim’s Women-only Brazilian Jiu-jitsu class Saturday mornings
I feel it’s important for women to train together. I also feel it’s essential that men and women support each other’s training. With that in mind, I am continuing to offer a women-only class on Saturday mornings. The Wednesday evening class, formerly a women-only one, is now a mixed group adult class.
All classes are one hour!
All classes are now one hour. If you need to warm up, please arrive early and do so. Warm ups during class will be short and based on the lesson that will be taught. After each class, the mats are open for stretching and/or rolling (for new folks, that’s the term for sparring in Brazilian Jiu-jitsu). Open mats after class are also a great time to drill the games that we use to rep specific skill sets such as guard retention, passing, top control, sweeps, etc.
The new adult class schedule for Solarte Brazilian Jiu-jitsu in Sequim:
Women-only classes are Saturdays 10:30-11:30am.
Mats are open after each class for rolling/stretching/drilling.
Youth classes are still every Tuesday and Thursday, 4-5pm. Rolling/stretching will happen during the last 15 minutes of class.
Sundays are also available for additional training if you contact me ahead of time. Don’t be shy…I’m usually already there on Sundays!
Check the website calendar for closure dates!
The online calendar is always kept up-to-date. Be sure to check it often. There are a few days each month when classes are canceled due to holidays or other events hosted at the mat space. If in doubt, call or text 360-808-3197 or check out Solarte’s Facebook page.
