BRAZILIAN JIU JITSU
Timaru’s premier Brazilian Jiu Jitsu academy was established in July 2016.
Run by black belt, Kirsty Mather, this community focused training environment offers classes to students of all ages in the art of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.
Brazilian jiu–jitsu (BJJ) is a martial art and combat sport that teaches a smaller person how to defend him or herself against a larger adversary by using leverage and proper technique. This art is not limited to smaller students and can be keenly learnt and applied by all body types, fitness levels and age groups.
The Gracie family, popularised BJJ, a modified judo and traditional Japanese jujutsu to create the art, and showcased their skills to great effect by creating and dominating the first UFCs.
Currently BJJ is practiced by all for wide range of goals including competition, self defence, fitness, community and more.
At Timaru BJJ we believe that BJJ is for everybody. We invite you to come in and check out the benefits of BJJ for you.
