Most tournaments use IBJJF’s rules. It’s important to understand them in order to compete and have the appropriate strategy.
Team Bear Hug is a diverse group of dedicated and passionate individuals (male and female) who love the sport. Some of our team members train to compete, some train for the pleasure of it. Bear Hug BJJ welcomes newcomers as well as drop-ins from other teams. We offer authentic Brazilian Jiu Jitsu training from our convenient school location in Corning, NY. Also serving the Finger Lakes / Southern Tier region, Horseheads and Elmira.
If you are in the area if Watkins Glen, New York and need a gym to train at, this is it. I have been to a couple of gyms outside of my home gym, and this has been the most welcoming. Great instruction and team members. I worked up a sweat even before the roll.
Amazing team spirit, training partners and a coach who is a well rounded groundfighter who knows the ins and outs of the art of Brazilian jujitsu.
Aron is an awesome instructor that knows how to easily explain complex movements. BEAR HUG has a great atmosphere and is welcoming to beginners. I have no hesitation in recommending this school. Two big thumbs up!
I look forward to training every class. Great teacher and great environment. Team Bear Hug is the place to train BJJ in the southern tier.
