Pure Art BJJ teaches enjoyable Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu classes in Portsmouth.

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a martial art that uses leverage instead of relying on size or strength to defeat an opponent - allowing a smaller person to successfully beat a larger person. This, combined with the fact it has been tested and proven effective in MMA, makes it perfect for self defence!

All Pure Art BJJ sessions feature patient and dedicated instruction for you, with lots of personal attention for each individual student. Classes are taught by Head Instructor Adam Sparrow, a multiple gold, silver and bronze medalist at international and national level BJJ competition. Adam has a background in multiple martial arts and heads up a multiple gold medal-winning competition team, if competing is something you are interested in. His teaching method is friendly and always patient. A product of his passion for the martial art means he's happy to explain something as many different ways as necessary until you understand it.

There is also an equal focus on standing techniques as well as self defence, looking at applications of techniques for a street context - with a good focus on throws or takedowns. Having been proven by its success in MMA, BJJ is very effective for self defence as it features live testing of its techniques against resisting training partners as part of its training methods. This means you know the techniques work as you have already tested them against someone fighting back and have experienced them working, giving you the confidence that you can rely on your ability.

BJJ is fast becoming the most popular martial art in the world and for good reason. As well as being highly effective and fantastic for self defence it's great for developing fitness, increasing health, mobility, strength and flexibility. It can also help you lose weight, reduce stress, gain confidence and help manage anxiety and depression. Above all else its just lots of fun and massively addictive to do!

Grappling with your partner becomes like a moving meditation. Its a physical chess game that forces you to be completely present in the moment, allowing you to forget about everything else and focus on using your intellect to develop strategy and your muscle memory to develop timing. The result is immensely satisfying and enjoyable to do.

Classes are highly suitable for beginners and you will be well looked after, helping you to develop with every step of your Jiu-Jitsu journey. Pure Art BJJ has both Gi (martial arts suit) and No Gi (shorts & t-shirt) sessions for you to train, and has spare Gi jackets for new students to borrow.

Private 1-2-1 personal lessons in BJJ, as well as striking, MMA, self defence and other aspects of the martial arts, are also available.

Pure Art BJJ Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu sessions in Portsmouth have a friendly and enjoyable atmosphere, with all the students helping each other to progress and develop together, creating an uplifting and positive environment in which to learn.
