Artemis BJJ Training Camp

Can and many of the students at Artemis BJJ regularly attend BJJ Globetrotters Camps. Those consist of an awesome week long BJJ training camp, with classes from 9am through to around 8pm. It’s a fantastic experience and one Can would highly recommend.

Unfortunately, not everybody has the time to take a whole week off work to enjoy a spot of pyjama wrestling. Therefore, Artemis BJJ hosts regular mini BJJ training camps right here in Bristol, to bring a taste of that experience closer to home.

We have also expanded to organise camps elsewhere: our first camp outside of the UK took place in Hamburg, Germany in 2022. We are planning future camps in München, Bergen and the USA. 😁


Most of our camps take place in Bristol, at the easily found Artemis BJJ clubs: directions are over on our Locations page.

The next Artemis BJJ Camp (our seventh) will take place on the 19th/20th November 2022, at our central location in Bristol, UK. If you would like to book your spot (£75, limited places and non-refundable) contact There will be at least 10hrs of training in total, across Saturday and Sunday, with both classes and open mat time.

Instructors will include Seymour Yang (famous for his Meerkatsu brand), Tanya Lindsay (instructor teaching in South West UK), Mike Velotta (decades of experience from Madison, USA), Hayley Carter (elite competitor), John Andrews (veteran black belt wristlocker), Vanessa Williams (based in Nottingham), Mike Buckman-Cowling (from Origin BJJ in London) and Can Sönmez (Artemis BJJ head instructor).

Tickets for our camps are non-refundable as the proceeds are used to pay for the venue and the instructors. However, you can of course sell that ticket on if it turns out you can no longer make an event. Please follow the Artemis BJJ Facebook page if you would like to stay updated on future camps. For footage of previous camps, head over to Instagram.

If you’re looking for things to do when you’re not on the mats, take a look at our dedicated Bristol page (for Bristol camps, naturally: for Hamburg etc, lots to do as well). To get an idea of the camp timetable, here’s the provisional schedule, subject to change:
