What is Brazilian Jiu Jitsu


Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) is a grappling art where you learn to control your opponent before applying a lock or choke to submit them.

Since there is no striking, it’s a very safe martial art and when you lock or start to choke your partner they ‘tap’ and let you know to release the position.During classes you’ll learn to throw and take-down an opponent to the floor. From there you will learn to control and submit them.

We teach two types of classes here at the Academy — Gi and No-Gi. Wearing the Gi is more technical whilst No-Gi is more realistic for those interested in MMA (mixed martial arts). We recommend you try and train both where you can. Classes begins with a thorough warm-up before before learning new techniques with a partner.

Classes finish with ‘rolling’ which is the BJJ version of sparring. Here you work with a partner of similar size and a similar level to put your new techniques into action and try them on a resisting opponent.
