Brazilian Jiu Jitsu classes at Synergy Fitness are run by our resident Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) Black Belt Arlans Siqueira. To find out more about BJJ lessons, please read on or call 07725 544867.
Arlans is a legend within the UK BJJ community, moving from his native Brazil in 1996 and becoming the first BJJ instructor in the UK. He is very proud to still be coaching BJJ here.
Arlans has been training BJJ for over 20 years and has competed at the highest levels in Brazil, here in the UK and across Europe.
BJJ promotes the concept that a smaller, weaker person can successfully defend against a bigger, stronger assailant by using leverage and proper technique, taking the fight to the ground – most notably by applying joint-locks and chokeholds to defeat the other person. In keeping with the original ethos of BJJ, it is Arlans’ aim to make Brazilian Jiu Jitsu accessible to everyone.
At Synergy Fitness we have a dedicated training area that is fully matted and we run a wide variety of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Classes, from Kids classes, beginner classes all the way through to Advanced and competition focused classes.
