Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a grappling based martial art that originates from Brazil where it was used to great effect in famous “Vale Tudo” no rules fights by the Gracie family. Whilst being an informed choice for Self Defence there is also a very healthy competition scene in the UK and many of our students do very well at all events. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu will make you fitter, healthier, and give you a massive boost in self-confidence
