Brazilian Jiu Jitsu
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a martial art that revolves around grappling and ground fighting. Most of the techniques focus on taking your opponent to the ground where you can control and work to submit them – making them tap out. BJJ promotes the idea that a smaller, weaker person can use leverage, grip, knowledge, position plus tactical skills and problem solving to successfully defend against a bigger, stronger assailant by successfully applying a range of techniques like chokeholds and joint locks.
Sparring/rolling is included in the majority of our classes as it enables students to put what they’ve learnt to the test and many of our members participate in BJJ competitions.
