Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) is a grappling-based martial art whose central theme is the skill of taking down a resisting opponent in ways that force him or her to submit. Such control is generally easier on the ground than in a standing position, and much of the technique of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) is centred around dominating positions to the extent that the opponent can be rendered harmless.

To control and overcome an attacker who possesses greater size, strength and athleticism is the keystone of BJJ philosophy and strategy. This is done by developing a deep understanding of leverage, control and positional dominance over your opponent.

This knowledge can be used to subdue an opponent with whatever level of severity the student chooses. As students develop, they will benefit from a greatly increased level of physical fitness, problem-solving ability, knowledge of their bodies and minds, as well as the many social benefits of working with a large group of like-minded fellow students in a safe, challenging yet professional environment. BJJ is not only an effective self defence system that is now world renowned, but a character building endeavour which offers much more than just a fat burning workout. 

Many students first learn about Jiu Jitsu though the great popularity of mixed martial arts (MMA) competitions, where BJJ technique is extremely prominent. Indeed, the beginnings of MMA and the early Ultimate Fighting Championships (UFC) competition were largely tied up with proving the real life combat efficiency of BJJ. The practice of BJJ as a sport and self-defence system however, is strongly separated from MMA. Daily classes do not feature kicking or punching, the focus is on safe grappling technique that can be done on a daily basis without getting repetitively hit.

Classes feature a strength, co-ordination and endurance building warm-up, followed by demonstration and practice of techniques - after which students engage in live wrestling with other students of their own level. It is a demanding workout with a strong mental aspect and a sense of purpose and skill that will truly capture your imagination. Come down to Centre Line BJJ to experience this amazing art and learn from respected and qualified instructors in the field. Watch a class or better yet, take us up on a FREE TRIAL CLASS. Jiu Jitsu will give you real self-defence skills, build confidence, burn fat as well as help develop self knowledge, dexterity and fitness that few people will ever know.

BJJ truly enriches your soul, strengthens your spirit and builds your confidence.
