My son started here couple months ago and he love it. He preferred to learn how to self defence then just kicking and boxing which I agree. Lessons takes whole 1h and they are not wasting to much time for warmup running in circle like in other schools. Price is perfect and I can highly recommend this school if your goal is to learn real Martial Art skills and not just pay for color belts like at other schools.

I recently ventured into the world of Jiu Jitsu training, and I must say, I am thoroughly impressed by its effectiveness and the minimal force required to subdue attackers. One of the remarkable aspects of this martial art is its ability to control and neutralize opponents without causing significant harm. By utilizing simple body movements, balance, locks, and leveraging an opponent's momentum, Jiu Jitsu offers a progressive approach to self-defense.
What sets Jiu Jitsu apart from other martial arts, such as boxing and Thai boxing, is its emphasis on technique rather than brute force. While I had previously trained for over 30 years in boxing and Thai boxing, I now realize that these arts, although effective in their own right, often necessitate strikes and kicks to subdue aggressive opponents. This reliance on striking techniques can have serious legal consequences, as excessive force can lead to legal issues and severe harm to the opponent.
Jiu Jitsu, on the other hand, offers a more measured and controlled approach. It empowers individuals to defend themselves without resorting to excessive violence. Through strategic positioning, joint locks, and submission holds, practitioners can effectively control and immobilize an attacker, giving them the advantage in a physical confrontation. This progressive use of force allows for the appropriate response to match the level of aggression encountered.
Moreover, Jiu Jitsu proves to be a martial art accessible to individuals who may perceive themselves as physically weak. It shatters the false belief that strength alone determines one's ability to defend oneself. By utilizing leverage, timing, and technique, even those with less physical strength can overcome larger and stronger opponents.
I am truly amazed at how Jiu Jitsu has provided me with a fresh perspective on self-defense. Not only does it offer an efficient means to subdue attackers, but it also promotes personal growth, discipline, and self-confidence. The focus on control and the avoidance of unnecessary harm aligns with my desire to protect myself and others while minimizing the potential for legal repercussions.
In conclusion, Jiu Jitsu stands out as a martial art that offers an effective and practical approach to self-defense. Its emphasis on technique, control, and progressive use of force sets it apart from other combat sports. Whether you are a beginner or have experience in other martial arts, Jiu Jitsu provides a valuable skill set that can empower you to protect yourself without resorting to excessive violence. It's an art form that encourages personal growth and instills confidence while promoting a safer and more responsible approach to self-defense.

My son finds the classes really good. The moves can be broken down and repeated which helps his way of learning! Martin is a good coach, and good with adapting the teaching techniques to each individual.
