What is Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ)?
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, often abbreviated as BJJ, is a martial art and combat sport that focuses on ground fighting and grappling techniques. It emphasises leverage and technique to control and submit opponents, making it suitable for practitioners of all ages and sizes.
Is BJJ suitable for beginners?
Absolutely! BJJ is welcoming to beginners and offers a structured learning environment to help individuals progress at their own pace. Our instructors are experienced in teaching beginners and will provide guidance every step of the way!
Do I need prior martial arts experience to start BJJ?
No prior martial arts experience is necessary to start learning BJJ. Our classes cater to individuals of all skill levels, from complete beginners to advanced practitioners.
Do I need to spar (roll) in BJJ classes?
While sparring, known as rolling, is an integral part of BJJ training, participation is optional. Beginners can choose to observe or participate in drills until they feel comfortable engaging in sparring sessions.
Are there belt promotions in BJJ?
Yes! BJJ utilises a belt system to signify skill level and progress. Students start with a white belt and progress through various coloured belts (blue, purple, brown, and black) as they demonstrate proficiency in techniques and knowledge.
