For the month of October, Alexandra Park BJJ will be running a series of free classes for women. It is open to all practitioners regardless of experience. It will cover all the basic skills and movements of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and more advanced techniques for those with more experience. These classes are open to all women over the age of 16.

Our BJJ classes enable you to develop your fitness levels, balance, coordination, and flexibility develop in a no-pressure environment and provides the opportunity to start a new sport at a reasonable price with like-minded beginners.

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) is a full-contact martial art, combat sport, and self-defence system focusing on grappling, especially ground fighting. Alexandra Park BJJ offers Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu classes for all levels.

Classes will run on Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays at Alexandra Park School, Rhodes Avenue, London, N22 7UT.

All Participants at Alexandra Park BJJ are expected to sign up to our code of conduct and an insurance waiver.
