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 has begun hosting a mini BJJ training camp right here in Bristol, to bring a taste of that experience closer to home.


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 third) will be on the 2nd/3rd November 2019, at our central venue (Easton Road, by LA Gym). If you would like to book your spot (£65, there will be 40 spaces in total), contact There will be at least 10hrs of training in total, across the Saturday and Sunday, with both classes and open mat time.

Instructors will include Gret Zoeller (top competitor and GB Long Eaton owner), Chris Paines (Priit Mihkelson black belt), Leoni Munslow (another elite competitor), Kenny Polmans (head coach at BRASA Limburg in Belgium), Lilo Asensi (instructor at Nexus Fighter Academy in Hamburg, Germany) and Can Sönmez (Artemis BJJ head instructor), among others.

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.
