At Gracie Barra Havering we focus on core techniques that every Jiu Jitsu practitioner should know. Focusing on both the self defence and sport aspect of Jiu Jitsu. Our classes are great for ensuring that each new student gets a high quality introduction into Jiu Jitsu while allowing for more advanced students to perfect the basics and more advanced techniques.
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) Classes
Our BJJ classes are ideal for everyone regardless of age or skill level. The phrase drill to win is our moto, in this class you will have the opportunity to focus on technique and Jiu Jitsu philosophy, as well as live sparing and rolling with other students. Generally new students will not participate in live rolling or sparring until they have completed a month of training techniques. Similarly if you wish to sit out of the sparring for a longer period of time or indefinitely that is fine to. Our BJJ classes have adopted a laid back Brazilian atmosphere unlike many traditional martial arts classes today, this combined with a brotherhood mentally makes for a very welcoming and friendly environment.
