BJJ - Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu – Skamma Gym

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Melbourne

If you’ve always wanted to learn the art of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Skamma Gym is the place to be.

S kamma MMA Gym Melbourne now offers Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ), a martial art focusing largely on grappling and ground fighting. It utilizes natural body leverage and proper technique to obtain dominant control on the ground and, as a result, provides greater position for striking or submission holds. If you’re looking for the best Brazilian Jiu-Jtisu South East Melbourne has to offer, Skamma Gym BJJ training is for you. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu has been proven, when used properly, to be an effective method for a smaller person or a female to deal with a bigger and stronger opponent. Melbourne BJJ has become increasingly popular due to its great success in the Ultimate Fighting Championship. It can be trained for self defense, sport grappling (gi and no-gi) and mixed martial arts competition and has found its way into the training regiment of nearly every successful martial artist worldwide.

Translated as “the gentle art,” Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu focuses on using strength and technique in the most efficient way possible to control and overcome opponents of greater size, strength and aggression. With its roots in the Japanese Jiu-Jitsu of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, the art found its way to Brazil in 1910, when Mitsuyo Maeda, a Japanese Jiu-Jitsu and judo expert, emigrated to the country. There he became friends with Gastao Gracie, an influential businessman who helped Maeda get established. In return, Maeda taught Jiu-Jitsu to Gracie’s sons, who became very proficient in the art, eventually passing on Maeda’s teaching in their own schools. The many additions, modifications, and refinements to the art made by the Gracie family were tested against other styles with great success, propelling Gracie Jiu-Jitsu into the martial arts world and creating a tradition that lives on today.

Benefits of Melbourne Jiu Jitsu Classes

Taking Jiu Jitsu classes in Melbourne has many health and fitness benefits. Some of these include:

  • Self-defence Ability – One of the most important benefits of our Melbourne BJJ classes is that you learn to defend yourself in case you’re ever in a situation where you need to. Jiu Jitsu is the perfect self-defence training for women.
  • Increased Flexibility – In Jiu Jitsu you’re moving all parts of your body as you work on the mats. This will definitely give you increased flexibility over time as you practice and improve on the various moves. When people attend our Brazilian Jiu Jitsu classes in Melbourne, they’ll often comment on how much more flexible their body feels.
  • Increased Mobility – It goes without saying, that constantly moving parts of your body in ways that you would not normally do in everyday life, will increase your mobility over time.
  • Learn Persistence & Determination – Learning the different moves and techniques requires you to practice them over and over again until you have finally perfected them which can sometimes take years of training. This in itself, will teach you persistence and determination.
  • Increased Focus – When you walk into a Melbourne BJJ class, you leave the stresses of your day behind because now you have to focus on each and every activity and technique that you’re learning and perfecting. Jiu Jitsu teaches you to focus completely.
  • Increased Self-confidence – Once you learn some of the different techniques and can beat an opponent who is twice your size, your self confidence grows because you feel accomplished and know that you can take care of yourself in any situation.
  • Lose Weight – The art of Jiu Jitsu gives you a total workout for both your anerobic and aerobic systems. This increases your cardiovascular endurance which helps you to lose weight easily.
  • Tones Your Body – Another great benefit of our BJJ classes in Melbourne is that they really help to tone and shape all areas of your body. During the classes you’ll be using muscles that you don’t normally use during the day. This will help to develop those muscles and you’ll end up looking and feeling lean and taut.
  • Teaches Cooperation – The only way you’ll learn all the different techniques and drills is with the aid of your training partners. Once you’re proficient in one technique, you’ll start to teach that to a training partner who is not. This teaches you complete cooperation, understanding and empathy.

These are just some of the benefits that you’ll gain from taking our Jiu Jitsu classes at Skamma Gym. We have the best BJJ training in Melbourne and look forward to having you come along to a class. After you attend your first class, we’re sure you’ll be hooked.
