Brazillian Ju Jitsu (BJJ)

Brazilian Ju Jitsu (BJJ) in Chepstow

BJJ is a grappling art that uses the principles of leverage, timing, and knowledge of the human anatomy. Ju means gentle and Jitsu means art, so its name literally means the gentle art.

BJJ originally came from Japanese ju jitsu and Judo which came to Brazil in the early 1900’s. It has since evolved into the fighting system you see today made famous by the Gracies in the UFC where it took the martial arts world by storm. It has since earned the right to be recognised as one of the best ground fighting styles around.

Our regular classes are led by BJJ blackbelt and head coach of Chepstow BJJ Gareth Jenkins.

Our end of month masterclasses are led by a BJJ  2nd degree black belt and 3 x British champion MMA pro-fighter Antanas Jazbutis.

The sessions are designed to teach from beginner to advanced students in a friendly welcoming environment. We also cater to senior students and fighters with our fight team training for more advanced practitioners and active competitors.
