I am offering a free session for complete beginners to try Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ).
BJJ is a fun martial art that focuses on techniques on the ground. It is both a sport and a form of self defence and is loved by people of all shapes, sizes, ages and physical abilities.
Time and Date
Saturday 7th May
1pm-1:45pm (Children aged 7-12) and then 2pm-3pm (Adults)
The kids session is open for children aged 7-12 years old.
Parents are encouraged to stay and watch.
Adults session is open to anyone over 18 years old
Wear comfortable sports clothing, eg tshirt and jogging pants or shorts.
The session begins promptly at the stated times. Please arrive early in order to give time for filling in a form and to get changed.
The Venue leisure centre has parking (bring change for the meter).
There are changing rooms downstairs.
The Beaumont Dance Studio is located upstairs at the Venue. Go up the spiral stairs, turn left and follow the coridoor until you see the door named ‘Dance Studio’. There are changing rooms upstairs too.
What to expect
Read a FAQ on Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu here.
In this session, I will introduce participants to simple movements and concepts that form the basis of BJJ. We’ll then apply these movements to practice how to escape from being pinned to the floor. I will also introduce some basic ‘guard’ positions and (for adult session only) a few simple and effective submission techniques. It’s a light to moderate work-out with an emphasis on simplicity, ease and of course….fun!
