LBJJC is excited to announce we will offer a new class, Striking and Padwork! The class will meet on Tuesday nights from 8:30-9:30pm, and will be taught by Nick Honstein. Prompted by the growth and success of our MMA class, we are excited to expand our offerings in that area, starting with a new class focused on the striking arts. Coach Nick will bring his experience in over 30 MMA fights, as well as time training in Thailand, to the classes. This will be an all-levels class; beginners are welcome!
Nick will also be taking over teaching duties for the No-Gi Takedowns class. A recent promotion at work and busy family schedule has left Adam Janacek unable to continue teaching the takedown class. Adam has done an incredible job building the takedown class from the ground up, and we will miss his instruction. Please thank coach Adam next time you see him! While we will miss Adam’s instruction, we are very lucky that we have Coach Nick Honstein able to step up and add the takedown class to his teaching duties. Nick is a multiple time state placer in wrestling in NE, and has a wealth of experience translating wrestling takedowns to both grappling and MMA competition.
To make this class possible, our Tuesday evening schedule has undergone a re-organization. The new Tuesday schedule will be:
6:00-7:30pm- Gi Jiu-Jitsu (All Levels)
7:30-8:30pm- No-Gi Takedowns (All Levels)
8:30-9:30pm- Striking and Pad work (All Levels)
In other schedule changes, the Sunday beginner no-gi class will move one hour later and run from 3:00-4:30pm.
These schedule changes are effective immediately-the new Sunday schedule will begin Sunday, 1/14/18, and the new Tuesday schedule will begin Tuesday, 1/16/18.
