Starting BJJ with Gama Force

Beginners Classes

Our dedicated BJJ Beginner classes are designed to give people new to BJJ the opportunity to develop a strong base before joining the more advanced classes. Our coaches will show you the fundamental techniques and drills that will help get you started on your BJJ journey. If you have never trained BJJ before this is definitely the ideal class for you. There is no rolling (sparring) during these classes. The program centres around a 16 class schedule which repeats, so you can join at any time and cover the entire syllabus.

Please contact us via Facebook or here for more information.

What do I need to bring?

Wear something comfortable and flexible, most people wear shorts and a t-shirt until they have a Gi. Also, remember to bring a drink with you as BJJ can be thirsty work!

When rolling (sparring) we always recommend wearing a mouthguard.

We sell all of the equipment you'll need so if you're unsure about anything, contact us before you attend your first class and we can help get you ready.

Previous experience?

You’ve had some time off the mats, moved to Cambridge or just coming to BJJ from a different discipline e.g. Judo or Wrestling, don’t worry we have you covered. We welcome everyone at Gama Force BJJ, so if you want to come and join us get in contact via Facebook or here, and we’ll work with you to find the best route onto the mats.

 

What is a Gi?

"Gi" is the name given to the traditional uniform worn in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ).

What can I expect from a class?

Classes begin with a warmup, typically followed by strength and conditioning exercises and some light stretching. This prepare the body for the class ahead and helps maintain a healthy level of fitness. Wednesday and Saturday classes have a more intense warm up and are designed elevate your current fitness levels.

After the warmup the instructor will lead the class in a technique such as a sweep or a submission, giving students the opportunity to observer and understand the technique before practicing with a partner.

Finally, with the exception of beginner classes, students are given the option to roll (spar) with their team mates in short rounds until the end of the class. Rounds are timed and students quickly switch partners before the next round begins.

All classes conclude with students lining up in rank order, ensuring belts are tied in Gi classes, and the instructor address the class before dismissing them.

Am I fit enough?

We hear this line a lot and the great news is BJJ will help you get fit very quickly. If you already have a basic level of fitness thats great, but if you don't we can help you get there.
