Brazilian Jiu Jitsu



What Is Brazilian Jiu Jitsu?

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a grappling-based martial art where the aim is the control of a resisting opponent by taking them down to the ground. Once on the ground, the use of superior leverage, gripping and positioning can enable control and submission of a larger, stronger, more aggressive opponent. Although the learning of this knowledge is physically and mentally demanding, it produces greatly increased physical fitness, sensitivity, problem-solving abilities and self-awareness of body and mind


At elements martial arts we pride ourselves on having a safe and fun environment where you can learn an incredibly effective form of self defence whilst improving fitness and building confidence. Please contact us for a free trial class.
