Open Mat Training

Unleash Your Skills at Lineage BJJ®'s Open Mat Sessions

Step into the world of self-directed practice with our Open Mat sessions at Lineage BJJ®. Far from the regimented structure of our formal classes, Open Mat sessions invite you to dictate your training pace and hone your skills independently. It's your chance to transcend the boundaries of the conventional class framework and take control of your training journey.

Custom-Tailored Training Experiences

At an Open Mat, you're in command of your time on the mats. Drill techniques, free-roll, or spar - it's all up to you. Focused on a specific technique from class? The Open Mat is your perfect opportunity to drill and refine it. Repetitive practice in a relaxed, pressure-free environment helps build muscle memory and paves the way for fluid execution during intense rolling sessions or competitions.

More Than Just Drilling

Open Mat sessions are not just about passive drills - free rolling and sparring immerse you in a hands-on learning experience. Test your mettle against varying styles, sizes, and skill levels to uncover areas for improvement and boost your competitive edge. It's also an excellent avenue for conditioning, accumulating mat-time, and preparing for competitions.

Beyond Physical Training

Open Mat isn't all about physical prowess. It's a hub for camaraderie, a platform for sharing ideas and knowledge, and a breeding ground for lasting friendships. With Open Mat sessions, you're not just training for BJJ, you're building relationships and growing as an individual.

The Spirit of BJJ at Lineage BJJ®

Open Mat sessions are a cornerstone of the BJJ journey at Lineage BJJ®. We believe in the harmony of structured learning and self-motivated exploration. These sessions foster healthier and more effective training while fortifying a united community.

Seize control of your training, unleash your potential, and capture the true spirit of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu at Lineage BJJ®.

Open Mat Sessions Guidelines at Lineage BJJ®

We prioritize the safety and comfort of our students. Before participating in free rolling or sparring, students must attain the rank of a 2-degree white belt or receive explicit approval from the coaching staff. Newcomers are encouraged to participate in drills and positional rolls. Remember, choosing your training partners is entirely up to you - if you need a break, feel free to decline an invitation.

By upholding these rules, we aim to maintain a safe, respectful, and encouraging environment at Lineage BJJ® - a platform where every student can thrive in their Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu journey.
