Welcome to Team Pedro Sauer UK
Looking for Gracie Jiu Jitsu Classes in Chelmsford and the surrounding area?
Then you’ve come to the right place. Learning Gracie Jiu Jitsu with us is a great way to get in shape, learn to defend yourself, all in a fun and friendly environment!
What’s the difference between Gracie Jiu Jitsu and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu?
Gracie Jiu Jitsu is a type of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, that focusses on ‘self defence first’, as opposed to a purely sporting mindset. We find that for the majority of people, this has much more benefit and application in their day to day lives.
What do classes consist of?
To ensure that the techniques shown can be applied in motion, at Team Pedro Sauer UK, we emphasise both situational and free sparring, otherwise known as rolling. Before doing so, students are taught the correct use of body mechanics and technique, so they can be used ‘live’ effectively, and without hurting themselves in the process.
Am I too old / unfit / small to join?
Gracie Jiu Jitsu is for great for all shapes, sizes, and ages of people; and equally beneficial for men and women! At Team Pedro Sauer UK we trace our lineage back to Grand Master Helio Gracie; a man who proved time and time again that with regard to defending yourself with Gracie Jiu Jitsu, size doesn’t matter!
