During the ten week course you will acquire the basic techniques and principles of Brazilian jiu-jitsu, and you will be able to combine all of them. You will learn the main dominating positions and how to achieve them, defence techniques and escapes, and of course the most common submissions.

The classes offer exercise for both body and mind – you’ll forget all your worries the moment you step on the mats. Brazilian jiu-jitsu improves your physical form, makes your body become stronger, but also more flexible and mobile. You’ll learn to move in ways you’ve never even thought of. BJJ in its liveliness and functionality is also the best sport for learning self defence skills.
