KIDS BJJ CLASSES
Our Brazilian Jiu Jitsu classes are for 4-8 year olds and 9-15 year olds and are friendly and educational. They give children the chance to make new friends and learn new skills. They also see the importance of working with others and respecting fellow students’ needs and abilities.
Each lesson starts with a warm up consisting of a mix of stretching (to improve flexibility) and some cardio exercises. Depending on students’ ages and abilities we then cover basic Brazilian Jiu Jitsu moves and, for older ones, look at how certain combinations are put together.
These lessons are specifically designed for children in order to develop their confidence, self esteem, balance, concentration, co-operation, co-ordination and, of course, fitness.
Sessions are a great addition to any child’s education and we hope that what they learn here will positively impact other areas of their lives. Parents are encouraged to stay and watch the lessons and see what progress is being made.
Gi or No-Gi private lessons available, to go through your own specific requirements.

MMA CLASSES (MIXED MARTIAL ARTS)
Mixed martial arts (MMA) is a full-contact combat sport based on striking, grappling and ground fighting, incorporating techniques from various combat sports from around the world.
During the early 20th century, various inter stylistic contests took place throughout Japan and in the countries of the Four Asian Tigers. At the same time, in Brazil, there was a phenomenon called Vale-Tudo, which became known for its unrestricted fights. where the Gracie family stood out for promoting fights as a way to promote their own style of Brazilian jiu-jitsu through the "Gracie Challenge" bringing together fighters from all over the world to test their fighting style. Challenge who became a great forerunner of MMA and the UFC. A precursor to modern MMA was the 1976 Ali vs. Inoki exhibition bout (which ended in a draw after 15 rounds), fought between boxer Muhammad Ali and wrestler Antonio Inoki in Japan, where it later inspired the foundation of Pancrase in 1993 and the Pride Fighting Championships in 1997.
In the 1990s, the Gracie family brought their Brazilian jiu-jitsu style, first developed in Brazil from the 1920s, to the United States – which culminated in the founding of the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) promotion company in 1993. The company held an event with almost no rules, mostly due to the influence of Art Davie and Rorion Gracie attempting to replicate Vale Tudo fights that existed in Brazil and would later implement a different set of rules (example: eliminating kicking a grounded opponent), which differed from other leagues which were more in favor of realistic, street like fights.
MMA is now renowned all over the world mixing kickboxing, boxing, muy thai, wrestiling, sambo & brazilian Jiu-jitsu inside the cage.
