Private Lessons with Coach James

Everyone runs into different challenges in when training in Brazilian jiu-jitsu. Paying attention to technique and coming to class consistently is extremely important in helping your game progress, but most of the time there are questions or problems in your game that cannot always be addressed in class right when you need them. Maybe you are having a problem with a certain position, wondering how you can use your body type to your advantage, or are being challenged by a specific person or strategy in rolling. Private lessons are an amazingly effective way to quickly solve some of those issues!

Black belt James Peterson not only has a great list of credentials, but has years of experience successfully helping people with their games and has coached multiple people to IBJJF World and Regional Champions. He is right here at home in Appleton and offering hour-long private lessons for as low as $40 when you split it with a partner. Call or text him directly at 920-740-6005 to schedule yours!

Now Offering 2 WEEKS FREE!

Team FVGC is excited to announce that we are extending our trial offer to 2 WEEKS FREE for all prospective adult students!  Team FVGC is the ONLY Brazilian jiu-jitsu academy in NE Wisconsin with a full-time Black Belt instructor as well as a group of the most dedicated and accomplished coaches in the valley.

Women’s Martial Arts Program to Launch February 29th

mighty_maiden_web_flyer_initial

Martial arts can be a powerful tool for women. Martial arts can not only give women the skills to protect themselves, but can be an effective way to develop self-confidence, determination, focus, and self-respect. The martial arts can also be a great way to relieve stress, a part of a healthy lifestyle, and a way to create a supportive network of friends and mentors!

 

Team FVGC’s Women’s Class teaches a combination of Brazilian jiu-jitsu, kickboxing, and self-defense skills in a safe, supportive, and empowering environment. It is designed for women with a variety of experience levels; we welcome women with absolutely no experience as well as our more advanced martial artists. This is a class that can be taken by itself or in conjunction with another martial arts program at FVGC.

 

Our Women’s program is taught by Alexandra Peterson, who has been training in the martial arts for over 20 years and is one of the highest ranking female Brazilian jiu-jitsu practitioners in Wisconsin. She has many years of teaching experience both in striking and grappling and is the founder of Rebel Girls BJJ, a non-profit organization that promotes women’s jiu-jitsu and its community in Wisconsin.

 

As with all the programs at Team FVGC, you get 7 DAYS FREE to try out the class (Learn more about getting started HERE
