Artemis BJJ Training Camp


Can and many of the students at Artemis BJJ regularly attend BJJ Globetrotters Camps, particularly the large annual Summer Camp in Leuven, Belgium. That consists 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 hosted a mini BJJ training camp right here in Bristol to bring a taste of that experience closer to home. So far, there has been an inaugural ‘test’ camp, which went well. The intention is currently to hold our next camp in April 2019, but that date is subject to change as it is still in the planning stages.

Our first attempt was held over the 25th-26th August at our Clifton location, The Exercise Club on 213 Whiteladies Road, along with a few sessions at MYGYM (directions are over on our Locations page). Everybody is always welcome at Artemis BJJ, wherever you train.

There was training on both Saturday and Sunday from 15:00 through to 19:00. We had six black belts teaching us, including Seymour Yang (who runs the world famous Meerkatsu brand), world champions Chelsea Bainbridge-Donner and Tom Barlow, pioneering female grappler Gret Zoeller, plus Neil Owen (one of the most experienced black belts in the UK) and his student James Boyle (who runs a successful BJJ academy in Chesterfield). The schedule was as follows:
