Nova Mente Fundamentals

     Your journey to earning your Black Belt begins here, with us, at Nova Mente Academy! It is here where you get the first taste and glimpses of the effectiveness of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu. All Jiu-Jitsu practitioners tie their White Belt on and start their path to Black Belt. You can come back time and time again and always learn something new. Nova Mente Fundamentals are designed to prepare you for real life self-defense situations while grounding you in the basics of this life-altering martial art.  

     You can expect to learn a wide variety of techniques and concepts such as how to close distance, and clinch your opponent. How to take your opponent to the ground, and stabilize the mount position. You will also explore a variety of concepts and theories on how to control an opponent on the ground. This is valuable information you will carry with you the rest of your Jiu Jitsu journey.

     After 6 months of training you will have transformed. In the beginning you will start to notice things about yourself: your body will begin to change, you will start soaking in knowledge, you will see body mechanics in a new light, the way you carry yourself will alter, and your level of self-confidence and discipline will increase. Most of all, your experience of yourself, and the quality of your life will expand.
