Brazilian Jiu Jitsu
BJJ is a self-defence martial art and combat sport based on grappling, ground fighting and submission holds. It focuses on the skill of controlling one's opponent, gaining a dominant position and using a number of techniques to force them into submission via joint locks or chokeholds.
It is extremely effective for self defence. It is fantastic exercise. And, it's very fun!
Our BJJ programme is ran by head coach Jamie Hughes. Welsh 1st Degree Black Belt and extremely successful competitor.
Muay Thai Kickboxing
This discipline is known as the "art of eight limbs" as it is characterized by the combined use of fists, elbows, knees, and shins. Muay Thai became widespread internationally in the late-20th to 21st century, when Westernized practitioners from Thailand began competing in kickboxing and mixed rules matches as well as matches under muay Thai rules around the world.
Our system blends Muay Thai and K1 training to form what we consider to be a complete kickboxing system.
Belts are not worn in classes but we award them ceremonially as a mark of progression.
Submission Grappling is a form of competition and a general term for martial arts and combat sports that focus on ground fighting with the aim of obtaining a submission through the use of submission holds.
The term "submission grappling" usually refers only to the form of competition and training that does not use a gi, of the sort often worn with belts that establish rank by colour. Not using a gi has a major impact on the sport : there are many choke techniques which make use of the lapels of the gi, thus rendering them un-usable and grappling in general becomes more difficult when the opponent doesn't have a gi to grab hold of.
The sport of submission grappling brings together techniques from Catch wrestling, Folk wrestling, Greco-Roman wrestling, Freestyle wrestling, Jujutsu, Judo, Brazilian jiu-jitsu, Luta Livre and Sambo. Submission fighting as an element of a larger sport setting is very common in mixed martial arts.
