BJJ Class

BJJ Class

£7.50

1hr 30min BJJ Class with Jack Magee of Madhatters Asylum. Black Belt and British Champion. Brazillian jiu jitsu is the art that made me fall in love with martial arts the way it was so openly tested in combat mad me interested, I'd tried other martial arts and always questioned the effectiveness but for brazillian jiu jitsu it was right there being tested in the old UFC and coming out on top. This was back in 2004 I have been training it ever since receiving most of my belts in Brazil and my black belt under professor Lucio Rodrigues. I teach brazillian jiu jitsu to adults, kids and women and strongly suggest the arte suave to all to improve confidence, fitness and to supplement a healthy lifestyle. *Brazillian jiu jitsu adult* Monday: 7:30pm Tuesday: 6:00pm Wednesday: 6:30am Thursday: 6:00pm Friday: 6:00pm (no-gi) Saturday: 9:20am Sunday: 5:00pm Brazilian jiu-jitsu (/dʒuːˈdʒɪtsuː/; Portuguese: [ˈʒiw ˈʒitsu], [ˈʒu ˈʒitsu], [dʒiˈu dʒiˈtsu]) (BJJ) is a martial art, combat sport, and a self defense system that focuses on grappling and especially ground fighting. Brazilian jiu-jitsu was formed from Kodokan Judo ground fighting (Ne-Waza) fundamentals that were taught to Luiz França and Carlos Gracie by master Mitsuyo Maeda. Brazilian jiu-jitsu eventually came to be its own art through the experimentations, practices, and adaptation from the Judo knowledge of Carlos and Hélio Gracie, who then passed their knowledge on to their extended family. BJJ promotes the concept that a smaller, weaker person can successfully defend against a bigger, stronger assailant by using proper technique, leverage, and most notably, taking the fight to the ground, and then applying joint-locks and chokeholds to defeat the other person. BJJ training can be used for sport grappling tournaments (gi and no-gi) and mixed martial arts (MMA) competition or self-defense.[4] Sparring (commonly referred to as "rolling") and live drilling play a major role in training, and a premium is placed on performance, especially in competition, in relation to progress and ascension through its ranking system. Since its inception in 1882, its parent art of Judo was separated from older systems of Japanese ju-jitsu by an important difference that was passed on to Brazilian jiu-jitsu: it is not solely a martial art: it is also a sport; a method for promoting physical fitness and building character in young people; and, ultimately, a way of life.

Capoeira

Capoeira

£5.00

Starting May 28th. Capoeira originated from the slaves that were brought to Brazil from Africa during the slave trade. They mixed their own traditions and culture with those that they found in Brazil, and capoeira was born. Capoeira is a mix of martial arts, dance and music, as have been called the dance fight game. Whilst the kicks and flips can be highly acrobatic, don't be put off if you are new to sport and exercise. Capoeira is open to all, and all levels of fitness are welcome. Capoeira will help increase your fitness - especially flexibility, endurance and balance. You will also get to learn music and songs, as well as the culture, history and philosophy of capoeira. Capoeira is as much as you want it to be. There is a lot to learn, but you can take it at your own pace. To start capoeira, you will just need tracksuit bottoms and a t shirt. You will end up spending some of your time upside down, so make sure it's not too baggy so it doesn't end up in your face."

MMA Strength & Conditioning

MMA Strength & Conditioning

£5.00

With MMA Strength & Conditioning Level 3 Coach Gareth Ide. Face it: if you want to be lean and ripped then you’ll need to work hard. Reaching new heights in any aspect of life usually doesn't happen in your comfort zone. You see, most people train in their comfort zone, which leads to a plateau and sometimes giving up on fitness all together. A high level MMA fighter has the endurance to go five five-minute rounds with a little bit still left in the tank at the end; the power and strength to land lethal strikes and execute crippling submission holds; and the overall athleticism to master various fighting disciplines—from wrestling to karate to boxing. Not coincidentally, virtually all successful MMA fighters possess lean, athletic physiques to show for it. So if the UFC body type is what you’re after, why not train like a fighter? We can't promise you that it will be easy, but if you’re consistent, progress will follow. It’s time to train smart! If you’re currently in your comfort zone or want to take your results to the next level then you need to try some different forms of metabolic training. The main form of metabolic training used in the MMA system and was developed over 12 years ago to train some of the top fighters in Mixed Martial Arts and UFC by Kevin Kearns. A workout that is challenging, but worth it when you are stronger, more explosive and at a lower body fat as a result OFF FOR WINTER< RETURNS IN SPRING Can be used in conjunction with Ladies Grit Fit Membership

DDP YOGA

DDP YOGA

£6.00

With Haydn Walden. Monday 7.30-8.15am and Tuesday 4-5pm NO RUNNING, NO JUMPING, NO LIFTING. You Can Do This! Diamond Dallas Page originally developed DDP YOGA for athletes like himself who had suffered years of injuries due to high impact sports. For the first 42 years of his life, Dallas was a guy who "wouldn't be caught dead" doing Yoga, or anything like it. When he ruptured his L4 and L5 discs in his back during the height of his professional wrestling career, he was so desperate to keep his childhood dream alive, he was willing to try anything. So he tried Yoga for the first time in his life. Because Dallas (DDP) had so much experience in many other areas of fitness all his life, he quickly learned how different Yoga was to his traditional training, and he started mixing the best parts (in his opinion) of Yoga, with his rehab as well as his traditional workout principles. For almost a decade, DDP has refined his workout and has become a master at teaching it to others, as well as motivating individuals to believe that anything is possible with dedication and hard work. Along the way, Dallas learned that very deconditioned men and women could do DDP YOGA as well -- even though he had never struggled with weight himself, he was amazed to see stories of people doing DDP YOGA losing literally hundreds of pounds! As Dallas puts it, "weight loss just happens to be a really AWESOME side effect of DDP YOGA!"

Kung Fu

Kung Fu

£7.00

Whenever a word is translated into English from another language, variations in spelling will occur. This is especially true when translating something from the Chinese, as the language consists of so many different spoken dialects, each with a different way of pronouncing the same word. Such is what happened when the Chinese for “martial art” (功夫) was translated into English. Although the popular version remains “kung fu”, some people call it “gung fu”, and others, including the late and legendary Bruce Lee, spelt it “gong fu”. However it is spelt or pronounced, it all refers to the same thing: a collective term for the different styles of (particularly Chinese) martial arts. Please check space availability prior to arriving and bring your receipt or Membership Card to class as proof of purchase or entitlement. Wednesday 9-10 pm

FROM JUST £8.50 PER PERSON. Available with Neil on a 1-2-1 basis or in small groups by appt. Greco Freestyle Wrestling. Please check space availability prior to arriving and bring your receipt or Membership Card to class as proof of purchase or entitlement. Freestyle wrestling, like collegiate wrestling, has its greatest origins in catch-as-catch-can wrestling and, in both styles, the ultimate goal is to throw and pin your opponent to the mat, which results in an immediate win. Freestyle and collegiate wrestling, unlike Greco-Roman, also both allow the use of the wrestler's or his opponent's legs in offense and defense. Freestyle wrestling is the most complete style of standup wrestling and brings together traditional wrestling, judo, and sambo techniques. According to the International Federation of Associated Wrestling Styles (FILA), freestyle wrestling is one of the four main forms of amateur competitive wrestling that are practiced internationally today. The other main forms of wrestling are Greco-Roman and Grappling (also called submission wrestling). The Executive Board of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) recommended dropping wrestling as a sport from the 2020 Olympic Games, but the decision was later reversed by the IOC.
