We offer classes for Children, teen and adults and regularly attend sanctioned tournaments.
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu or BJJ as it is often referred to teaches that a smaller, weaker person can successfully defend against a bigger, stronger assailant by using leverage and proper technique—most notably by applying joint-locks and chokeholds to defeat the other person. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu training can be used for sport grappling tournaments (gi and no-gi) and mixed martial arts (MMA) competition or self defense. Sparring (commonly referred to as ‘rolling’) and live drilling play a major role in training, and a premium is placed on performance, especially in competition, in relation to progress and ascension through the grades/belts.
This is a great class for gaining confidence, better fitness, co-ordination, speed and agility and has been one of Pride Gym’s best selling class for every age group!
