Our Jiu-Jitsu Classes

Our BJJ academy is about realistic training and the pursuit of excellence in self-defence. We don’t just teach technique. We emphasise the importance of timing and positioning, and how even perfect technique will fail if you don’t learn when and when not to use it. Our safe and encouraging environment allows our students to learn the intellectual depth of Jiu-Jitsu or BJJ.

Gracie Jiu-Jitsu is unquestionably the best martial arts to learn to defend yourself if the fight goes to the ground. On the feet, there are many to choose between. It is important to acknowledge that all martial arts are to some degree flawed in one respect or another. For instance, particular techniques might be unrealistic or inapplicable in the street.

All martial arts training cover some self-defence situations well, but not others. For example, Wing Chun Kung Fu doesn’t adequately address how to escape from common headlocks in submission wrestling, whereas Gracie Jiu Jitsu (Gracie Family BJJ) deals with many different headlock situations on the feet and on the ground.

You can develop the following by practising BJJ martial art:

  • Core strength and balance

  • Overall health and fitness

  • Flexibility and co-ordination

  • Self-esteem and self-confidence of world champions

  • Strategy development

At our academy, we teach people to defend themselves in the hope that they will never need to.

Better to have trained in martial arts and never need it, than to need it and have never trained.

I want to learn BJJ to defend myself.

I am looking for a social environment that is right for me.
