Jiu-Jitsu, commonly known as BJJ, is a martial art that uses weight and leverage to take the fight to the ground and defeats opponents using holds and submissions. Its modern-day focus is on competition, sport, or as a hobby for Jiu-Jitsu enthusiasts. It improves your physical fitness through varied and challenging positional training and routines followed by positional training (known as rolling) on the mats. Led by a coach who adapts training to your own ambitions, Jiu-Jitsu is optimised for self-defense, combat, and competition all in a safe, friendly, and inclusive community.
