Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a martial art and combat sport system that focusses on grappling, joint locks, chokes and especially ground-fighting. Its is a system of self-defence that was designed for the street, adapted by the Gracie family to focus on dominating your opponent on the ground. Whatever the size or weight of your opponent it will be used against them. BJJ provides amazing physical and mental benefits and is also a cardiovascular, breathing and resistance workout. The ultimate stress relief!
Paxton Gibbons is the Head Coach for both adults and juniors at RGA Henley and a black belt under 10 Time World Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Champion Roger Gracie. Paxton's love of jiu-Jitsu and friendly nature extends throughout the club. He loves teaching and this is evident in how well his student's progress. Although he runs his academy in Henley on Thames, he is available for teaching and private lessons in Mayfair, London as well.
Paxton currently runs BJJ classes for Adult Beginners and Intermediate, as well as classes for Juniors and hopes to start Self-Defence classes tailored towards women soon.
Adult classes are currently being held on: Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, Saturday and Sunday, with specific beginners sessions on Wednesday and Saturday.
The Junior classes for ages 8-12 years old are on Wednesdays 6.15-7pm, 10-13 years old on Tuesdays from 6.15 -7pm and Teen Classes (14-17 years old) on Thursdays 6pm -7pm.
BJJ is an amazing sport for children to learn as it teaches them discipline as well as giving them confidence as they learn how to defend themselves. Unlike many martial arts, BJJ requires contact from the very beginning getting the children used to controlling their bodies and teaching them to think quickly in tricky situations. Its the ultimate workout for both their bodies and their minds!
See you on the mats!
“I have been training at RGA Henley for some time now, and I must say that it has been an incredible experience. The club has a welcoming and supportive environment, and the coaches are knowledgeable, skilled and passionate about teaching Jiu-Jitsu. I travel quite a way to get to Henley, but for the atmosphere it's worth it. Honestly wouldn't want to go anywhere else"
