Frequently Asked Questions...

Q: What is Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ)?

A: Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a martial art that focuses on ground fighting and submission holds. It emphasises technique and leverage over strength and size, making it effective for self-defence.

Q: Is BJJ effective for self-defence?

A: Yes, BJJ is highly effective for self-defence. It teaches you how to control and submit an opponent, which is crucial in real-life situations where you might need to defend yourself. In addition to sport BJJ, all our programmes incorporate a self-defence point of view, which focuses on escaping unpredictable situations.

Q: Do I need any prior martial arts experience to start BJJ?

A: No, you don't need any prior experience. BJJ is suitable for beginners and our classes are designed to accommodate people of all skill levels.

Q: What should I wear to my first BJJ class?

A: The only things we ask you to bring is a drink and open footwear that you can slip on and off easily. We will lend you a uniform for session at no cost to you.

Q: How often should I train to see progress?

A: Training consistently, at least twice a week, is recommended to see progress in your skills and fitness. Our comprehensive timetable aims to accommodate this level of commitment across a wide range of schedules.

Q: Will BJJ help me get in shape?

A: Yes, BJJ is a full-body workout that improves strength, flexibility, endurance, and cardiovascular health.

Q: Is BJJ safe for adults?

A: Yes, BJJ is generally safe when practiced with proper instruction and a focus on safety. Our instructors emphasise technique and control to minimize the risk of injury.

Q: Can women benefit from BJJ for self-defence?

A: Absolutely. While our main curriculum teaches techniques that allow smaller individuals to control and submit larger opponents, our Women's GBF Programme specifically aims to build confidence and awareness among women through a tailored combination of effective self-defence techniques and sport BJJ.
