Fundamentals BJJ Classes

This is the BJJ Beginners programme . It focuses on taking the average person that has never stepped foot onto a mat before and teaching you everything you need to be considered advanced in the basics of BJJ, Judo and Wrestling.

How is the class taught?

Everything is taught in an easy to learn and sequential way. As a result,  you will be told clearly how to perform each movement exactly and also guided through any potential challenges with a training partner.

Do the Fundamentals take long to learn?

Five Rings Grappling Academy have created a four month rolling curriculum.  This centres around teaching you everything you need to know. From how to grip properly, fall safely and move your whole body on the ground to controlling a fully resisting opponent.

The fundamentals class works by giving you a great understanding of the 5 basic positions of BJJ (closed guard, half guard, side control, mount and back control). This will help you to transition between the positions effectively should you ever need to use your new skills in a self defence or combative situation.

Everything has been thought of from the perspective of self defence and sport competition.

Advanced BJJ Classes.

Five Rings Grappling Academy Jiu Jitsu programmes define different stages of development with the Fundamentals and the Advanced Programmes. These show different skill levels as students go from one to the other at their own pace. Classes are available in both of our locations.

I’ve completed the fundamentals – what now?

Because the Fundamentals Program focuses on the basics, the Advanced  Program is built on higher-level techniques. With drills that build the students game through the development of speed and timing as well as moving between one technique and another.

Students now usually find themselves experiencing the discipline and commitment to healthy habits that keep them in good shape. Throughout the fundamentals it is usual to have students tell us how much weight they have lost and how great they feel after Jiu Jitsu. We even help people to quit smoking.

How are these classes taught?

These classes are based on a curriculum that is open-minded and uses techniques from different grappling styles so can take a student all of the way to black belt. They are a faster paced class so you can be sure you will leave smiling and sweaty after having learned something new.

The advanced classes take students all the way from blue belt to black belt and we have had students from these classes win medals at the international level.

No Gi BJJ Classes

No need to ever train in the gi.

No Gi Submission Wrestling is one of the fastest growing sports on the planet. It mixes the takedowns of Wrestling, the groundfighting of BJJ and leg locks of Sambo. With the popularity of UFC and ADCC, the No Gi classes have students from other arts join us on the mats to learn techniques to add to their own style.

Five Rings Grappling Academy believe’s in an approach where students feel as comfortable whether wearing a gi or not. Whether standing or on the ground. We regularly hold seminars and classes with some of the best fighters in the world. This gives our students the opportunity to learn cutting edge techniques with the best.

Our No Gi BJJ Classes are beginner friendly and structured so that students can progress without ever wearing a gi. They take place in Sheffield every Tuesday and Saturday and Mansfield every Thursday and Sunday.

What are the main differences between Gi and No Gi?

There are many differences between the two. People can even argue now that they are almost separate sports as there are certain submissions in No Gi BJJ that are illegal in the Gi (heelhooks, twister spinelocks etc) as well as certain positions (Inside Sankaku, Saddle). The main difference, though, is what you wear. In the gi you wear a jacket and trousers which can be gripped and used against you to get a submission hold or choke. The gi is also used to control different guards and set up different sweeps. In No Gi BJJ you wear a rashguard and shorts and these aren’t allowed to be held onto to try to control you. It is a very pure form of grappling that can rely more on speed and strength.
