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.

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
