Carlson Gracie Brazillian Jiu Jitsu

From February 8th Carlson Gracie Brazilian Jiu Jitsu classes will be starting, taught by experienced brown belt and British Champion, Sam Gibson. Classes are every Saturday from 1-3pm in the Dojo of the South Oxford Community Centre.

In Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ), we seek to take opponents to the ground and gain a dominant position where we can apply a multitude of joint locks and choke holds to secure a submission. The art of BJJ is a very positive addition to any lifestyle; it promotes fitness, agility, self-confidence and general physical and mental wellbeing. BJJ is very effective due to the nature of the training. By removing dangerous techniques (such as strikes, gouging or groin strikes) we are able to train at high intensity with a far smaller risk of injury, meaning the techniques we practice are honed in a realistic environment and the BJJ player is prepared for the adrenaline and intensity of a ‘real fight’. BJJ is a very technical martial art; leverage and technique play a greater part than strength meaning a smaller person can overcome a larger more aggressive opponent. For this reason it is ideal for anyone seeking to improve their chances of defending themselves against an attacker.

Classes will cost £8 a class for adults or £6 a class for students, or or you can book a introductory 6 week block for £40 for adults or £30 for students.
