We are reopening with a reduced timetable from the 17th May 2021, following a number of restrictions in order to train safely during the pandemic. Please make sure you read our COVID-19 policy in full before heading to class. Sessions will need to be pre-booked.

Instructors Can and Donal Bristol BJJ Bristol Brazilian Jiu JItsuArtemis BJJ offers affordable Brazilian jiu jitsu from a central location in Bristol, just off the Lawrence Hill roundabout. For full directions, check out the map, which additionally has pictures of the entrance. We also have sessions at The Exercise Club on 213 Whiteladies Road in Clifton.

Our dedicated, friendly and experienced team of instructors are ready to welcome you onto the mats. We offer classes seven days a week (see our timetable). Lessons are suitable for everybody, whatever your level in BJJ. Your first week is free, to give you a chance to see whether Brazilian jiu jitsu and the team at Artemis BJJ are a good fit for your needs. After your trial, unlimited training is only £40 a month.

We recommend that complete beginners attend the specific beginner class on Mondays at 19:30, but you’re welcome to go to any session you like. If you would like an idea of how the classes are run, here is some video footage summarising a typical lesson at Artemis BJJ (you can also watch the unedited version, where you can see a class in full):

We pride ourselves at Artemis BJJ on being welcoming to everybody. All are welcome, regardless of gender, sexuality, age or physical ability. We have had the privilege of sharing the mat with a gentleman in his 80s and with amputees. It’s never too late to start: we know a woman in her 60s who is a BJJ black belt.

Brazilian jiu jitsu is a versatile martial art which can be adapted to your needs. Your first week at Artemis BJJ is free, so you’ve got nothing to lose. Come and join us on the mats today!
