What is Brazilian Jiu Jitsu?

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a grappling based Martial Art, incorporating the principles of leverage, angles, pressure, and timing to render your opponent harmless.

It centres around taking an opponent to the ground, as you have greater control there than in a standing position. From there, BJJ involves using knowledge of human anatomy to achieve a non-violent control or submission of an attacker, through a joint lock or choke.

Fitness & Health Benefits

Looking on advancing your fitness, flexibility, strength & co-ordination? Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a fantastic way to do so, while also teaching you self-defence skills that will boost your confidence.

It can also help you lose weight, and improve your physical condition overall, strengthening your muscles as well as developing your cardiovascular and respiratory capabilities. On top of all that, BJJ helps develop endurance, and reduce stress and anxiety.


Brazilian Jiu Jitsu does not involve kicking, punching, or any other striking techniques. The objective is for BJJ practitioners to be able to defend themselves without having to strike their opponent. Instead, BJJ focuses on asserting control over an opponent until they submit.

The skill set of a BJJ practitioner involves the ability to be able to defuse a violent situation in a non-violent manner. Rather than fighting fire with fire, BJJ practitioners take control of the situation, putting an end to a violent attack. For this reason, BJJ is the best practice for developing your self-defence skillset.

Perfect for Kids

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a great way for kids to safely learn how to defend themselves, without providing an avenue for violence and aggression. It’s a safe, fun, and exciting sport that your kids will love! Not to mention, BJJ can be the perfect way to make new friends.
