Brazilian Jiu JitsuCharles Martin Martial Arts Academy
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a grappling-based martial art where the central theme is the skill of controlling an opponent, whether stood up or on the floor
Our academy has links with the Ryan Gracie team, through Charlie being one of the first men in the UK to receive a BJJ Brazilian Jiu Jitsu black belt from the Gracie’s.
We are also the only club in the area to have not one, but TWO high level BJJ black belts and are a member of the British Ju Jitsu Association, so have the pedigree and back-up to assure you are in good hands when it comes to learning the very best Jiu Jitsu.
Jiu Jitsu goes under many names and styles, and there are many schools of thought, but each one is part of the whole thing and it constantly evolves and develops, so we believe the best way to build your game is to take what works best from each and combine skills into an invincible all round Jiu Jitsu game.
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu or BJJ harnesses the concept that control is easier on the ground than in a standing position, hence much of the technique of BJJ is centred round the skill of taking an opponent down to the ground and wrestling for dominant control positions.
Our Jiu Jitsu takes the skills of this highly effective art one step further, so unlike clubs who ONLY teach Gi (the traditional martial arts wear) we go by the concept that in an everyday situation, nobody wears a Gi, so its best to ALSO learn techniques that do not rely on this.
Our approach is therefore unique and versatile as we teach in Gi, but also teach techniques that can be applied in normal clothing, or in a fight situation, even topless, making it a more effective, all-round defence style.
Our BJJ Jiu Jitsu classes in Doncaster start at beginner to advanced and just like our other disciplines, can help you to become fitter and more confident, or with time and determination, support you to become a winning fighter.
