PROVEN SELF-DEFENCE & FITNESS

90% of all fights end up on the ground.

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is the only proven martial art that specializes in ground fighting - where a smaller, weaker person is able to defeat a larger and stronger attacker using technique and leverage

Our classes cater to everyone regardless of age, fitness or experience level. You will:

  • Learn to defend yourself on the ground as well as in close range

  • Have fun while mastering the martial art commonly referred to as ‘human chess’ due to its depth and technical nature

  • Get fit and be involved in a life-long activity that everyone from children to those in their 60’s and beyond can do

  • Build muscle and lose fat while learning practical self-defence skills

  • Develop your mental toughness, problem solving skills and patience

  • Improve focus, concentration and increase eye/body coordination
