Following government advice regarding the coronavirus pandemic, we will be temporarily closing from the 20th March. We hope to be open again soon, depending on how the situation develops. There will be interactive online classes instead for our members, while we wait to get back on the mats. You can see an example of what these classes are like below, from a drilling session in late April 2020:
Artemis 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):
For a summary of the warm up drills we include in each class, head to our BJJ videos page. For an example of how we teach, below is footage of Can covering a technique during one of his evening classes. You can find other material taught over on the BJJ videos page:
We are proud to be a member of the United Kingdom Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Association (UKBJJA). We are also part of the international BJJ Globetrotters community, meaning travelers are very welcome to train with us. We also regularly attend BJJ Globetrotter Camps.
There are no restrictions on who can train BJJ
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!
