Our BJJ classes start with an energising warm-up, where you’ll practise important movements like forward and backward rolls, hip-escapes, squats, sit-ups, and pushups. Our experienced instructors will then guide you through the techniques of the day, breaking down each movement so that you can understand and apply it with ease.
Once you’ve learned the technique, it’s time to put it into practice! Our instructors will pair you up with a training partner, where you’ll drill the technique and reinforce the skills you’ve just learned. Finally, it’s time for free-rolling, a 30-minute session where you can apply your skills in a live scenario and refine your techniques.
