Spots available

These aspects will be covered during the course

Rolling and breaking fall

It may sound simple, but a correct way of rolling and breaking a fall. Ensures that you can prevent many annoying injuries. In addition, a good rolling technique ensures that you will be able to perform your BJJ techniques better later on.


In Brazilian Jiu Jitsu you have different positions from which you will learn to defend yourself, but also to set up attacks yourself. Common positions are; side control, mount, closed guard, half guard and open guard. During this course we pay extra attention to all these positions so that you can learn and apply the techniques faster


BJJ is largely about controlling your opponent, this often requires improving your position in relation to your opponent. Your opponent will not just let this happen, he/she will do everything with his/her legs and arms to stop you. During this course we will teach you the basic techniques needed to pass your opponent and get into a dominant position​

Holding Position

You have finally made it past your opponent's arms and legs. You are now in a dominant position. But what now? Your opponent will do anything to get out of this position and you should do your best to hold your position.


But what if you end up lying on the bottom yourself?! That also happens sometimes, you can try to push someone very hard but with an opponent who knows how to hold the position this will be difficult. With the right technique, you can get out of this annoying position without exhausting yourself

Condition, Coordination and Agility​

A good condition, good coordination and some flexibility is a big advantage when practicing BJJ. We will work on all these aspects during this 1 month course. Often not in the form of countless exercises, but especially in the form of BJJ techniques at a faster pace
