January 2014 brings about some big news for Revolution BJJ and Muay Thai. First off, we have 2 new class time slots, covering all three levels of Muay Thai training at our gym! The full schedule can be found here. Level 1 classes (also called “intro classes”) will be held on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5:30-6:30 PM. Level 2 classes (the “Fundamentals”) will be from 6:30-7:30 PM on Mondays and Wednesdays, along with 1 PM on Tuesdays. Finally, the Level 3 classes (more advanced) will take place Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6:30-7:30 PM.
The technical theme for January is the clinch. The clinch is a necessary and valuable tool for fighting; it will happen, whether you want it to or not! Learn how to utilize off balancing techniques to keep your opponent guessing, land effective knee and elbow strikes, and how to get in and out of the clinch effectively (including defending from the worst positions in Thai Boxing!).
We’re now reserving spots four our next 8 week introductory program for Muay Thai kickboxing that begins in March 2014. Reserve your spot today by contacting us here - this program will sell out quickly!
Finally, come enjoy the additional space as we finalize our expansion! There are more improvements coming in the near future, but the extra room starts right away.

The technical theme at Revolution BJJ for the month of January 2014 is open guard maintenance. You are likely to spend the overwhelming majority of your time rolling trying to pass the open guard or trying to maintain it. We will study this crucial area in considerable detail all month long.
All of our 6 AM classes, along with 5:30 PM BJJ on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, and Saturday at 11 AM (all of our Level 2 classes) will revolve around this theme, as will all of our 7:30 PM (Level 4) classes. This month can make a dramatic difference in your overall guard game in a very short amount of time!
We are also currently taking reservations for our next intro program for BJJ. Reserve your spot today!

January 25th, 2014 will be a very big day for Revolution BJJ! January marks the 8th year anniversary for the gym’s existence, and thanks to all the growth over the years (and especially more recently), we’re expanding to a facility that is three times the current facility’s size! To commemorate this momentous occasion, we’re offering four events during the day.
First, Julio “Foca” Fernandez will visit Richmond to conduct a three hour Brazilian Jiu Jitsu seminar on passing the guard! Julio brings a legendary status as a sixth degree black belt under the legendary Carlson Gracie, and is one of the founders of our team. We are honored to begin the festivities with Julio giving one of his high energy, information-packed seminars on passing the guard! For more information on the seminar, check out the official event page on Facebook and contact us to reserve your spot early. The seminar will be from 12-3 PM.
Next up, head instructors Andrew Smith and Trey Martin will oversee BJJ belt promotions for several highly deserving students. Julio’s presence and blessing will make the occasion even more memorable! Everyone will take a seat at 3 PM, and the entire ceremony will last one hour. More info is available here.
Then… open mat! Come roll with some of the best grapplers in the area, as several students from Revolution BJJ and quite a few visitors from other gyms take to the mats at 4 PM to do the type of training that represents our gym- relaxed and fun! Here’s the Facebook event for more info on what to expect. There is no charge for the open mat.
Finally, at 5 PM, refreshments and food will be offered, including catering from Chipotle (nearly everyone’s favorite option for catering!). This is a great time for friends and family who don’t necessarily train to come check out the new facility and hang out with good friends. Open house info is here.
Of all these events, the seminar at the beginning is the only one that costs any money. If you use Facebook, please RSVP to any of the above events so that we can get a good estimate of the numbers in attendance. Otherwise, feel free to contact us via email. Let’s make it a great day!
03 of December 2013
For the month of December, our focus in Muay Thai shifts once again to one of the most devastating attacks in the art: elbows. We’ll explore the use of several different types of elbows, starting with the true fundamentals of the horizontal elbow, diagonal front and rear elbows, and elbows from the clinch. There are tons of combinations and counters, and there’s the defense as well. All of this- and more- will be covered on Tuesdays and Thursdays (Level 3 class) in December at Revolution BJJ and Muay Thai. Mondays and Wednesdays will continue to be Fundamentals classes (Level 2).
Interested in doing our 8 week intro program for Muay Thai? If you’re new to the art and want to try it out for only $59, we are currently reserving spots for our January session. Just contact us if you are interested in reserving your own space in the upcoming program, or if you have any questions. This program sells out quickly!
02 of December 2013
December 2013 at Revolution BJJ brings back the usual gi classes, and a new focus: the triangle choke. This month we’re focusing largely on the triangle as a position as well as a submission, featuring dozens of high percentage set ups, tremendously important points of control broken down in a very simple, easy to understand manner, and combinations and escapes.
Interested in getting started with us? We are now reserving spots for two different BJJ intro programs that start in January! Reserve your spot today by contacting usright away.
