BRAZILIAN JIU JITSU

hello, we are the essex blades BRAZILIAN JIU JITSU club


Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) is a martial art focusing largely on grappling and ground fighting. It utilizes natural body leverage and proper technique to obtain dominant control on the ground and, as a result, provides greater position for striking or submission holds.

 

How many teams do we have?

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is an individual sport but members have the opportunity to compete throughout the year.

 

Recent honours?

We are a recently ratified sports club, set to resume training this academic year.

 

Do I need anything else before I get involved?

Please wear comfortable sports clothing to training sessions.
