Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) is the largest and most popular martial art in the Army and Defence.

It is a ground based fighting system designed to neutralise a physically bigger and stronger opponent and is open to absolutely everybody regardless of ability, age or gender.

BJJ combines Judo and Wrestling to rapidly close the distance and take an opponent to the ground. Once on the ground it applies a combination of chokes and joint locks to finish the fight.

The Army Team regularly competes at national and international level and boasts a large number of British, European and World Champions.

We would love to see you regardless of whether you aspire to be a future world champion, or just to learn some self-defence or just get a little bit more active.
