Beginners Classes

Beginners are welcome at all of our weekly mixed level classes, but we also offer three weekly classes that are aimed primarily at those starting out in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) for the first time.  Our beginner’s classes are the ideal introduction to BJJ and are specifically designed to give students a strong foundation in all aspects of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, including self-defence, takedowns, and the fundamentals of BJJ.


We now run three beginner specific classes every week:


KINGSTON-UPON-THAMES – Tiffin Sports Centre

Friday (Beginners only class): 7-8 pm *New class starting in March*

Sunday (Beginners only class): 1-2 pm


KINGSTON-UPON-THAMES – St. John’s Parish Hall

Tuesday (Fundamentals class open to all levels): 8-9 pm

10 months ago I signed up for Jiu Jitsu Brotherhoods beginners classes and it’s proven to be one of my best decision to date. The classes taught me some self-defence techniques as well as the fundamentals of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, giving me the confidence and eagerness to continue training after the course completed. Starting a martial art can be intimidating, I was hesitant at first, but Marc’s friendly welcoming nature made it easy to come back week after week. My training partners became my friends fast! That’s a testament to the club spirit Marc and Nic have created here!

The thing that struck me immediately about my first evening at the Beginners class was the supportive atmosphere. Marc and the other students made me feel so welcome. I felt comfortable being a beginner and this was key. At the end of the class, I knew that I had found my school and that Jiu-Jitsu would be part of my life moving forward. I can’t recommend this club any more highly. Marc is an excellent Jiu-Jitsu teacher
