Brazilian Jiu Jitsu

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu will make you fitter, healthier, and give you a massive boost in self-confidence.

Meeting new friends and learning some crucial self defence skills.

We are here to help you.
We run many specific programs for different groups so there is sure to be an option for everyone to try it out.

We have added 3 extra classes to the Fundamentals timetable including 18.00 on Wednesday Evening for Submission Grappling without the BJJ uniform.

The 06.00 am classes have been added as many people have busy lives and can only find the time to train early mornings.

The Fundamentals classes will now run 

Monday  06.00 – 07.00

Monday  18.00 – 19.00

Wednesday 06.00 – 07.00

Wednesday 18.00 – 19.00

Thursday 12.00 – 13.00

Thursday 18.00 – 19.00

This course has been running for many years and has helped many people change their lives for the better. People from the course have gone on to be British Champions. This is the perfect introduction to Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Grappling.
