Open Mat Classes

We will soon be starting up our adult self-defence classes. These classes will be tailored towards women of all ages and will use Gracie jiu-jitsu to teach you how to be aware and alert to your surroundings. They will teach you how to defend yourself against an attacker and react through muscle memory. They will also help you to build strength and confidence through physical interaction in a safe, comfortable environment.


Build friendships! Build Confidence! Build Strength! Build Respect!
In the kids classes we use our own body weight for exercises based on jiu-jitsu warmups and techniques. We learn balance, awareness and flexibility and have fun with a wide variety of games which improve our fitness and gradually begin the children's Jiu-jitsu training.  As we progress we will incorporate more Gracie BJJ techniques so they learn how to use jiu-jitsu with respect and understanding.


Our kids classes will now be on Tuesday (children aged 10-14) and Wednesday evenings (children aged 8-12) from 6.15- 7pm (Juniors) and on Thursday evenings from 6.15-7pm for children aged 14-17 years old (Teens). We also have an extra Teens Open Mat session on Sunday mornings as well 10.30-11.30am.

Kids classes cost £7 per session, paid termly. Official RGA Kimono needed to train, for more information email us through the link below
