We train in judo-style ghis, which you can borrow from us initially. We have a variety of sizes that you can borrow. Women also wear a t-shirt beneath their jacket and so remember to bring a comfortable t-shirt along (preferably a white one).
The club trains every Tuesday from 8pm - 9.30pm
You can start training whenever you like. We do not have set starting dates and welcome newcomers throughout the year.
We charge £3 a session for adults and £2 a sessions for students, the unemployed and under 18's. There is also a licence fee to become a member of the BJJA. This costs £12 for the first year, and £10 a year thereafter.
Your licence is both your membership and grading record. Its second purpose is to give you third party insurance against injury.
This depends on the ability and commitment of the individual, however you can expect to train for anything from four years upwards to reach this stage.
are women that train regularly with us, so don't be afraid to join us!
