May Bank Holiday Open Mat

May Bank Holiday Open Mat On the 29th May 2023, the New School BJJ Battersea branch held an Open Mat session, so that our members could take advantage of getting some training in on the Bank holiday.

At the end of the session, and after all the enjoyable hard […]

Kids Comp Training

Kids Comp Training On Sunday 15th May, New School BJJ held a competition training session for the kids. Unlike a regular session, there was no focus on drilling techniques.

After this, the kids were put into groups to do a few rounds of round robin sparring, whereby one opponent stays on for two rounds.
