Brazilian Jiu Jitsu

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) is a martial art adapted from Kodokan Judo which focuses on grappling with your opponent on the ground.

By applying proper technique and leverage, BJJ practitioners can neutralize their counterpart using joint locks and chokeholds. BJJ is the best self defence against a bigger, stronger or heavier foe. Submission techniques learned from a qualified martial arts teacher can help a much smaller and weaker practitioner to achieve a dominant position on the ground. Unlike Karate or Taekwondo which use punching, kicking or striking techniques, BJJ is one of the safest full-contact combat sports because of its low impact grappling maneuvers. When you learn Brazilian Jiu Jitsu at Bowler’s BJJ, your progress will continue at a pace that’s right for you. Beginners will engage in technique drills against a non-resisting partner. As you gain more confidence, you will practice positional drilling using a specific set of techniques to gain an advantage over your opponent. More advanced students will spar with each other using techniques learned in class to overcome their opponent.

Kickboxing is a hybrid martial art, a mixture of Karate and Boxing techniques. 

It was developed for self defence and has become a popular combat sport around the world. Also used for general fitness, it provides an extremely good workout. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Kickboxing were combined to create mixed martial arts (MMA), a combat sport made popular by the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC).

Self Defence for Women

Bowler’s BJJ maintains a female-friendly training gym. Classes occur in a co-ed format.

Females learn to employ grappling techniques against generally larger males in a safe environment, thus providing proper women’s self defence instruction. We are also proud to offer limited Female Self Defence Classes. These one-time events allow women to train together in an all female environment where they can learn self defence techniques that defend against the most common attacks they might face. Such techniques include holds, chokes, hair pull, wrist grabs, hostage attacks, mounted ground and weapon attacks. Check our events list for upcoming dates.

Self Defence for Kids

Kids benefit immensely from martial arts training. Your child will be able to protect themselves against bullies.

They will also learn self-discipline, build self-confidence and a healthier body. Kids are taught to avoid fighting at all costs but when confrontation cannot be avoided, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is the perfect self defence. While many other martial art disciplines fail to equip students with ground fighting techniques, BJJ is ideal for a smaller person who needs to defend themselves against a larger adversary. Focusing primarily on gaining a better leveraging position than their opponent, students will be taught stand-up maneuvers as well as techniques that can be used on the ground. Kids also feel an amazing sense of accomplishment when they are able to recreate some of these maneuvers and techniques.
