CLASSES

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) is a predominantly ground-based martial art, using the principals of leverage, pressure, timing and control. Unlike other martial arts where the primary focus is in your ability to strike an opponent, BJJ focuses on close contact grappling, using holds, application of chokes and joint manipulations.

Submission Grappling

Submission Grappling/Wrestling leaves behind the traditional kimono (Gi) worn in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. A hybrid of faster paced, competitive sport, focusing on ground fighting and submission techniques. It takes elements from multiple sports including BJJ, Judo, Sambo and Wrestling.

Kids Jiu-Jitsu

Our Kids BJJ class combines fun, fitness, and fundamental Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu techniques in a safe and supportive environment. Led by our experienced instructors, your child will develop confidence, discipline, and respect while learning valuable self-defense techniques and making new friends.

FAQ'S

Q Do I have to be in shape to get started?
Not at all. You’ll find that our classes for beginners are the perfect way to build up your overall fitness level and confidence regardless of your physical condition.
Q What makes Triton BJJ different to other Jiu-Jitsu schools?
We are blessed to have three active black belts teaching and rolling regularly with students. We are also a non profit club meaning all fees and memberships go back into improving the club, the facilities, training and competitions. Being committee lead all major decisions are discussed and agreed upon as to provide the best experience for members.
Q I’m out of shape should I wait until I’m a bit fitter?
Absolutely not, there is no requirement to be fit upon joining. BJJ is a progressive individual journey, as is fitness. Our warm ups can sometimes be physically demanding, but you can take your time and stop when you need to.
Q Do you offer a free trial?
Yes, we do! Your first week is completely free. Meaning you can train every session that week whilst you decide if it’s for you or not.
Q Is there an age limit for learning Brazilian Jiuitsu?
No; we welcome members of all ages. This is the beauty of Jiujitsu, its for anyone and everyone. What makes Triton BJJ Weymouth special is the community in which it is built on. The members are at the centre of what we do.
Q Sparring (rolling) sounds scary, is it dangerous?
BJJ is unlike any other martial art. You can perform your rolls at any intensity to suit your own ability, whether it be 10% or 100% the likelihood of injury is low when compared to other martial arts. Rolling is about improving your technique and rather than beating your opponent. To ensure rolling is as safe as possible, you can stop at any time just by tapping on your training partner and the round will completely stop. One of the first things you will be taught is to tap early and tap often!
Q What are the benefits of training Jiu-Jitsu?
There really are too many benefits to list! To name a few: Fitness, Confidence, Mental health, Self-Discipline, and arguably the biggest thing most people find is its ability to make you comfortable being uncomfortable. Then there is always the community you join as a member of the Triton BJJ family.
Q What should I bring to my first class?
Lots of water! You can wear sports gear, preferably a tight top and shorts with no zips – tie any long hair back! We have spare Gis for trial members and will have club Gis available soon! Most importantly – yes, you can keep your socks on if you are that way inclined!

TESTIMONIALS

After seeing the incredible growth in skills and confidence my daughter gained from the kids' classes at Triton, I decided to join as well. Despite my initial nervousness about my fitness level and lack of martial arts background, on top of social nerves the community was so welcoming and supportive that my only regret is not joining sooner. The classes are exceptionally well-run, and the positive environment makes all the difference.

Since joining Triton BJJ I’ve been made to feel so welcome! There are no egos just wholesome support from everyone involved. The clubs black belts Mark, Marco & Richard provide a wide variety of knowledge within the sport. It’s a non profit organisation growing day by day with an amazing atmosphere! I can honestly say I’ve made friends for life since joining and would highly recommend to anyone looking to partake in ju jitsu!
