At the Bad Boy Training Centre, we offer a range of Jiu-Jitsu and BJJ Training because these disciplines are a large contributor in being a successful Mixed Martial Artist.
Jiu-Jitsu is a grappling art that emphasises the use of leverage over brute strength, whereas the techniques of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu are exclusively concerned with pins, joint locks and chokes rather than striking techniques.
The Jiu-Jitsu uniform, the Kimono or Gi, is a hard wearing jacket and pants in the Japanese style that is used to grip and control the opponent and is utilised in many of the strangling techniques. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu can also be practiced without the Kimono, and is often referred to as ‘submission wrestling’ or ‘no-gi’ Jiu Jitsu.
Jiu-Jitsu can be practiced as a sport, as an art, or for self defence, and is an essential element of the skill set necessary to fight in MMA. Because of the reliance on skill and technique over force, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is an ideal martial art for men and women regardless of age or physical build.
We are one of the few facilities in the country to benefit from the expertise and coaching BJJ Brown Belt Ryan Roddy and BJJ Black Belt Richy Knox.
