Led by black belt Andrew Dearsley, our team of passionate, high-level coaches want to teach you the art of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ).
BJJ is a martial art based on grappling, ground fighting and submission holds. BJJ focuses on taking an opponent to the ground, controlling one's opponent, gaining a dominant position, and using several techniques to force them into submission via joint locks and choke holds.
BJJ is great for both fitness and self-defence and is a sport everyone can join, no matter your age, gender or fitness level.
Starting any new sport, much less a martial art, can be difficult. So your very first session is a 45 minutes private introduction class with one of our instructors. After that, our beginner’s classes allow you to learn the basics in a very controlled, safe, and fun environment. Our fundamental program is designed for anyone, male or female, of any body type or fitness level. The program is designed to effectively introduce all the basic positions, techniques, submissions, and escapes. The classes will prepare you for both self-defence and sport Jiu-Jitsu. It will also improve your fitness, balance, and coordination.
Designed for those who have practised BJJ for a while, or are returning to the mat after a break, this program will help you reach new heights in your Jiu-Jitsu journey. In these classes, the whole world of Jiu-Jitsu is an open book to be studied, evaluated, drilled, and put into practice. For students wanting to evolve their Jiu-Jitsu to the more advanced belts, compete, or test their abilities in the most practical setting, here you progress in a systematic fashion to improve your understanding, reflexes, and overall development in the sport. This is the class where champions are made and fitness goals are exceeded
Submission Grappling or also known as No-Gi Jiu-Jitsu, takes the same approach as Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, but without the advantage (or disadvantage) of a uniform to grab on to. Take off the Gi and the three biggest differences are less friction, fewer and weaker grips to control your opponent and fewer methods of applying strangles. The class focuses on modifying our normal Jiu-Jitsu techniques by reducing emphasis on the ability to grab clothing material. What you have left is a real life experience that is similar to the type of grappling done in the Octagon.
