Brazilian Jiu Jitsu

A grappling-based martial art, the aim of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is to force your opponent into submission with joint locks and chokes. The focus is on technique and leverage allowing a smaller person to defeat a stronger opponent. BJJ is often described as a “physical game of chess” due to its depth and technical nature.

What to expect in your first class

A Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) class starts with a warm-up designed to get you moving and developing skills through drills which are essential to BJJ. More than likely you haven’t done some of these movements before, that’s okay, this class is designed for beginners.

Following the warm-up, the instructor shows you a technique such as side-control, a joint lock or choke. You and your partner will then go practice this technique. We try to partner new students with more experienced students and the instructor always comes around to help. We then regroup, ask questions then go back and try again.

Towards the end of the class, we do specific training. This is where you try the technique live in a safe environment. There is no striking involved and you have the ability to tap at any time.

Coach

Eric Holmstrom

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Instructor

Eric has been training Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) since 2009 with over 9 years experience. Looking to lose weight and couldn’t keep momentum lifting weights, he walked into a small gym near his bus stop.

“I remember rolling with Karen, a blue belt and tiny in size. I learned to tap real quick that day and here I was thinking I would be the one going easy.”

Eric fell in love with the martial art ever since and was awarded his brown belt (and all belts) under Fabio Glazer and continues to compete to this day.

Testimonials

Don’t take our word for it, take theirs.

I like how it's small so there's greater attention focused on each other, and with great team spirit. I really enjoyed the class.

Joseph Sciuto

I had fun and was a good workout. Definitely keen to come back next week

Gary Tannous

There are no egos at this gym and everyone is always helpful and friendly.

Matt Cochrane

I found my first class really great from the get go. I liked the fact that I could tell it takes a lot of work but you learn a lot
