Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu @ESB starting 17th May

A welcome to new and existing members to Brazilian Jiu Jitsu @ESB with Black Belt Andre Ramos starting tomorrow 17th May.

Well known as the most efficient grappling martial art and combat sport that focuses on ground fighting with the goal of gaining; Dominant position and using joint-locks and chokeholds to force an opponent to submit.

It promotes the principle that a smaller, weaker person using leverage and proper technique can successfully defend against a bigger, stronger assailant.

Regardless of strength, size, or previous training, anyone can learn effective submission techniques. Nothing feels better than knowing you can take care of yourself mentally and physically.

We will continue to progress the levels of training throughout the year.

Here are the new details:

Where: ESB Matthews building
When: Every Tuesday & Thursday starting on the 17th May till the 9th June.
Time: 17:00 – 18:00
Course: 4 weeks (1st week FREE for new comers)

. ?40 for 4 weeks (Tuesday or Thursday)
. ?60 for 4 weeks (both Tuesday & Thursday)
. or ?12.00 on a Pay as you go basis.

Any further details, call me, thanks and we look forward to seeing you all.
