THE PROGRAMS

GI PROGRAM

Well structured strength and conditioning programs should to mimic the physiological demands of the sport. This includes reliance on grip dominant exercises and an emphasis on isometric strength. A physiological trait that is truly universal to all types of grappling (and therefore makes up a core focus of our programming) is the ability to maintain an earned position through isometric strength. Commonly referred to as “mat strength,” this ability to maintain tension can mean the difference between finishing a pass you worked hard for, and letting your opponent retain their guard.

Due to the intermittent nature of the sport, adequate metabolic conditioning is also a must. High-intensity intervals with a work-to-rest ratio of 1:3 can mimic the pace of a typical gi match and have been included into our programming to accustom your body to that type of stress, preparing you to give maximum output when it really counts.

NO GI PROGRAM

Well structured strength and conditioning programs should work to mimic the physiological demands of the sport. This includes the integration of more explosive movements and isometric contractions, which are typically seen in no-gi grappling matches. Explosive movements – such as take downs and outside passing – tend to be more common in no-gi, but a physiological trait that is universal to all types of grappling (and therefore makes up a core focus of our programming) is the ability to maintain an earned position through isometric strength. Commonly referred to as “mat strength,” this ability to maintain tension can mean the difference between finishing a pass you worked hard for, and letting your opponent retain their guard.

Due to the intermittent nature of the sport, adequate metabolic conditioning is also a must. While there tend to be more high vs. medium intensity bouts of work in no-gi as opposed to gi, work-to-rest intervals of 1:3 mimic no-gi competition and have been included into our programming to accustom your body to that type of stress, preparing you to give maximum output when it really counts.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING

  • From the beginning Atos was a blessing. The classes are very friendly and very profound ways of teaching. If you want to experience BJJ to the highest limit and train along side the world champion and one of the most humble man I know go to Atos and talk to Carlos he takes care of everyone.

    Hector V. – San Diego
  • If you’re looking for a place to train in San Diego, then train at ATOS jiujitsu with Andre Galvao. He’s a great instructor with an open mind/heart and welcomes everyone of all skill level. When he’s gone for competitions, there’s no need to worry about training because there are a lot of top level student instructors at the school. Great place to train!!

    Jason S. – San Diego
  • I started training here 9 months and even though I can only make it 2 days a week the learning is amazing and positive never quit attitude is great. They really take time and pride in the learning of the students. Andre and Leo are amazing along with all other memebers of the staff. Truly a great group of people to be around. They should have gotten 6 stars.

    David W. – San Diego
  • I’ve trained/visited quite a few jiu jitsu gyms and Atos San Diego has been far and away the very best. Not only for the quality of the jiu jitsu instruction, which is top notch and cutting edge, but for the quality of the people. Everyone is treated like a valued member of the team, from top talent to hobbyist white belts. I think this is largely a product of the kind of person Andre Galvao is. An exceptional place to train.

    Philip O. – San Diego
  • Galvao Jiu-Jitsu truly offers the best BJJ instruction not only in San Diego, but in the western hemisphere. Not only do you have the best professors, but you have the best BJJ practitioners around to actually train with. No other academy can tout multiple World Champions on the mat all day everyday. The people there have become our extended family.

    Rey S. – Eastlake
  • Back in January I participated in the 30 day trial that the academy offers and let me tell you, the instruction I received during that short period of time was some of the best I’ve had in bjj. Everything was broken down clearly and as a result I was able to pick things up a bit quicker. I wish I could give more than five stars.
