Intro Course

the best way to start bjj

This course will teach you the most important positions, ideas and concepts of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.

It can be intimidating to start with Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.
When you finally do visit a gym, you get thrown into the deep with barely any guidance.
You have to train with people with way more experience than you.
The techniques the coach explains don’t make any sense. 

This is the experience of many people that start with BJJ. 

Our unique Introduction Course aims to change that experience. 
In two week we will teach you the fundamentals of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu in a small group setting.
 You work with other beginners and the class is tailored to people without any experience in the sport. 

That way you can start BJJ in a safe and effective way.

After you complete this course, you will be able to follow any beginner’s class around the world and have a good idea of what the instructor is talking about

What do others say?


“Before the Introduction Course I noticed I didn’t understand the basics and the ideas behind the moves. Now I understand the ideas behind the moves way better. I can hold my own against better training partners longer now. I liked that there was a lot of time and space for asking questions during the course”


“The Introduction Course helped me with the basic skills like falling and getting up. It also helped me be more comfortable with the close contact. When I joined the regular classes, I was able recognize a lot of the techniques. It gave me more confidence because I now understand the basics”


“Before the Introduction Course I was not training very consciously. Now that I did the course, I am aware of a lot of important details. It made me more confident and more conscious of what I am doing. The course also helped me with the names of the positions and techniques ”
