BRAZILIAN JIU JITSU (BJJ) & SUBMISSION GRAPPLING
Dedicated Jiu Jitsu Academy in Guildford, Surrey. Focused on providing a systematic and conceptual approach to the complex sport of BJJ and self-defence. We are proudly affiliated to and mentored by the world famous Mauricio Gomes.
All our classes from Kids and our Beginners Program, through to experienced Competition Athletes are coached in the same systems and methods that we see working consistently at the highest levels. However, this is only half the story...
Just as important as the approach we take is the environment we create. BJJ is addictive fun and training is supposed to be an enjoyable release from the pressures of modern life. Guildford Jiu Jitsu is committed to providing our members (and all those who visit us) with supportive and friendly training partners and coaches, that make every class a pleasant experience you can look forward to.

Programs & Class Schedule
ADULT BJJ: Brazilian Jiu Jitsu practitioners wear a traditional uniform or Gi. A Gi is a heavy cotton jacket with a thick collar, drawstring pants, and a cotton belt which is coloured to denote rank. The grabbing of clothing imparts control over your opponent and even offers options to win via submission.
ADULT NO-GI SUBMISSION GRAPPLING: In No-Gi Jiu jitsu (or Submission Grappling) a rashguard and shorts are worn. Grabbing the clothing is not permitted and thus the No-Gi version of the sport is often viewed as faster and more energetic, with the Gi offering a more methodical and technical game.
ADULT & KIDS SELF-DEFENCE CLASSES: As a BJJ student, you will learn how to control and overcome an opponent of greater size and aggression, utilizing superior leverage, grip and positioning in relation to your opponent. Thus, Jiu Jitsu practitioners develop a deep understanding of conflict management and through sparring they hone the ability to push themselves both physically and mentally, far beyond what they previously deemed possible.
KIDS BJJ: Our aim is to provide a safe, fun environment in which to help children develop a deep confidence, while reinforcing positive values and good character. Promoting focus, determination, fitness, and many other qualities, learning Brazilian Jiu Jitsu provides children with options to effectively defend themselves and find a way out of conflict. Most martial arts programs rely on teaching striking techniques: punches; kicks; knees; and elbows; but BJJ takes a different approach. All the techniques are purely defensive, utilize no strikes and are proven to work at the highest levels of combat sports and self-defence.
BEGINNERS COURSE: Start your adventure into Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and a powerful system of self-defence, with our specially designed Beginners Course. This program (of 4 weekly classes on Friday evenings) offers a carefully crafted introduction into the sophisticated grappling system of takedowns, ground-control and submissions, collectively know as BJJ. In this program, you will learn the core techniques, terminology & concepts of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu in a fun, safe, and cooperative environment. Each hour-long lesson helps to quickly embed the classic 4 Stage Strategy of Jiu Jitsu by taking the new student from standing start into a grounded self-defence technique, towards positional control and finally into a submission.
PRIVATE CLASSES: While regular group classes are the primary way that most students learn and develop their Jiu Jitsu skills, some prefer to begin with or supplement their understanding with Private Classes. Calm, focused one-on-one time with your instructor will help you make strides forward.
