About

Instructors Can and Donal Bristol BJJ Bristol Brazilian Jiu JItsuArtemis BJJ offers affordable Brazilian jiu jitsu from a central location in the heart of Bristol. We can be found near Cabot Circus in St Paul’s (just off Portland Square) at MYGYM. For full directions, check out the map. We also have a session at The Exercise Club on 213 Whiteladies Road in Clifton, every Monday from 11:00-12:00.

Our dedicated, friendly and experienced team of instructors are ready to welcome you onto the mats. We offer classes six 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.

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 from open guard known as the sickle sweep. You can find other techniques taught over on the BJJ videos page:

BJJ Globetrotters logo Brazilian Jiu Jitsu GlobetrottersWe 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!
