Introduction to BJJ and MMA
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) and mixed martial arts (MMA) have exploded in popularity over the past few decades. These martial arts disciplines not only provide an incredible full-body workout but also invaluable self-defence skills and boosted confidence. However, finding a gym that specialises in high-quality BJJ and MMA training can be a challenge. That’s where we come in.
Our gym offers specialised classes, experienced instructors, and a close-knit community atmosphere to help you achieve your martial arts goals. Whether you want to get in shape, learn self-defence, or compete professionally, we have something for everyone. Read on to learn more about our specialised BJJ and MMA services.
World-Class BJJ Instruction
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a grappling-focused martial art that teaches you to subdue opponents through various holds, locks and throws. It emphasises using leverage, angles, and proper technique over brute strength. Our BJJ program helps students of all levels, from complete beginners to experienced grapplers.
Our classes are taught by high-level black belt instructors who will closely monitor your development. You’ll learn all of the essential BJJ techniques and positions, including:
- Guard passes
- Submissions like armbars, triangle chokes, and rear naked chokes
We also offer gi and no-gi classes to help tailor your training. Gi BJJ utilises the traditional uniform, while no-gi uses more fitted athletic gear for a faster-paced style. Both help improve your overall skills.
In addition to classes, we have open mat time where you can spar and drill techniques with teammates. Competing is encouraged but optional. Overall, our BJJ program will improve your physical fitness, problem-solving skills, discipline, and more.
Top-Tier MMA Training
MMA combines techniques from various martial arts, including boxing, Muay Thai, wrestling, BJJ, and more. If you want to participate in a mixed martial arts competition, our MMA program will take your abilities to the next level.
Our classes provide high-intensity conditioning, striking development, grappling training, and mental preparation. You’ll learn:
- Proper special techniques for punches, kicks, knees, and elbows
- Takedown and wrestling skills for controlling opponents
- Grappling and ground-and-pound training
- Cutting-edge strength and conditioning routines
- How to put it all together through sparring
We also provide one-on-one focused mitt work and pad rounds so you can hone your skills. If you plan to compete, we’ll make sure you’re prepared both physically and mentally. Our coaches have trained numerous amateur and professional fighters over the years.
For those newer to MMA, we offer a comprehensive introductory program covering all foundational techniques. Within 6-12 months, you’ll have the ability to hold your own in the cage or ring.
