A grappling martial art without striking, Jiu Jitsu was developed in Brazil throughout the 20th century before exploding in popularity after it was showcased in the first “Ultimate Fighting Championship” where it was shown to be an incredibly effective means of self-defence which could overcome far bigger and stronger opponents.
Since its exposure on the world-stage Brazilian Jiu Jitsu has grown rapidly and continues to do so, owing to a potent mix of the Art’s effectiveness, the community which Jiu Jitsu breeds and the ability for people of all ages to practice the sport in a safe and welcoming environment.

NoGi is a style of Jiu-Jitsu which takes place in rash guard and shorts, without the kimono.
It focuses more on the wrestling aspect and is much faster and high paced than its Gi counterpart. The biggest advantage of NoGi training is that it translates well to both MMA and real-life situations.
However, if a student wishes to progress through the belt ranking system, GB1 or GB2 Gi classes also need to be taken.Book Your Free Class
