There are many reasons to begin BJJ. Some start to get fit, some to learn self-defence, others to make new friends. However, there is a number, who join to compete, to test themselves against others, to seek where their limit is, the effectiveness of their technique and where they compare to other BJJ practitioners.

With this in mind, GB Glasgow is delighted to announce the beginning of a new competition team with specialist training for team members.

The training:

  • Classes are scheduled to begin in early January after the festive break.
  • Is aimed at those pupils who wish to compete in local, national or international level.
  • Is open to all GB Glasgow current Pupils who are at ‘three tab’ white belt or above, with regular attendance at the GB2 classes also a requirement.
  • Is competition focused, with advanced conditioning components, point scoring, technique drills, sparring development and high-intensity competitive rolling.

Please note, it is not mandatory for you to attend these classes. However, these classes are on offer to those students who wish to compete against others at various competition levels. Students who wish to join the team will need to prove their motivation, consistency and desire by becoming an athlete and by taking their BJJ evolution serious.

For those students who wish to join but do not currently feel ready, a development plan can be organised and discussed with Professor Gillon, to help you reach the required level. Please discuss this at your next class.

Make 2019, the year you compete.

Jiu Jitsu Testimonial

"I have been training with gracie barra scotland for about three years. I started with fitness training but became interested in the jiu jitsu through the fitness training. Since starting training here I have lost three stones in weight, become fitter than I ever thought I could be at the age of 46 and won a silver and bronze medal in jiu jitsu competition. I couldn't recommend this training enough."

Personal Trainer Testimonial

"Ricky provides a balanced view on how you can achieve your goals and what you need to do in order to reach them and beyond, but more importantly its a holistic view. He will discuss diet, training plans and answer any questions that you have, without pushing an agenda. The only thing that you have to bring is your willpower, a desire to push yourself and your limits, along with an open mind as to what exercise can achieve." Jenny
