Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a combat sport and self defence system based on grappling, mainly on the ground, using leverage, locks, chokes and positional dominance to control and submit an opponent. BJJ evolved from Judo which evolved from Japanese Ju Jitsu and has continued to evolve with new techniques and training methods developing over time.

Our instructor is Lyle Gawley who is a brown belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu under Prof. Antonio La Salandra. He is trained in first aid, child protection and is vetted through Access NI.
