The bulk of the classes on our timetable are “General”. The classes are suitable for absolute beginners to seasoned grapplers.
One of the advantages of the general class is the mix of skill sets on the mat. The advanced student will have the chance to try a new technique on a less skilled partner and be able to build up their technique there. The novice will have more experienced trainers around them to guide them and speed up their learning.
Our experienced instructors will be able to scale the amount of detail in the technique to suit everyone on the mat.
A Gi also known as a Kimono is the heavy cotton Jiu Jitsu uniform, although they come in many colours, we only have white and blue Gi’s.
In a Gi class the uniform is gripped and can be used in many techniques, adding to the complexity and variety of techniques available.
There is often much conjecture about Gi vs No Gi, our viewpoint is that it’s essential to do both.
Your ego is your enemy, your partner is your teacher. Be humble and respectful to others
This is pretty straightforward do not wear shoes and sandals onto the training mats in the gym. Leave your shoes or sandals at the side of the mats.
This is another customary rule you must follow to have in your BJJ journey.
In Jiu Jitsu, arguably the best part of the class is the free sparring at the end, known as rolling. Here you get to practise your techniques against a fully resitenant training partner.
