Brazilian Jiu Jitsu

Classes consist of technical instruction, drills and live sparring (rolling).
Training Grounds boxing programme is built around the core development of a strong set of fundamentals, with an emphasis on footwork, balance & conditioning.
Training Grounds kickboxing programme follows the Dutch model of Muay Thai with an emphasis on free flowing combinations which set up kicks with punches, balance & control.
