New School BJJ Opens New Branch in Cheam !!

New School, New Branch, North Cheam Kids!! On Saturday, the 12th December 2020, New School BJJ were proud to hold the first Kids class at the new branch in North Cheam. The plan was to start the sessions in the new year but, as you can imagine, a few of the kids were itching to get on the mats early. So, coach Lukasz, decided to open up for a few classes before the festive break! Lukasz is not only a BJJ brown belt but is also a very experienced and successful competitor, having won tournaments in both Gi and No-Gi divisions. In addition, Lukasz also works as a referee at some of the UK’s most prestigious BJJ and grappling competitions.  […]

Kids are back at Battersea !!

Kids are Back!! The COVID-19 pandemic has had a great impact on all facets of our lives, including our training in Jiu-Jitsu. New School BJJ hasn’t been able to run any classes since the first lockdown began, at the end of March.

It was great to see the kids get back on the mats, with that same dedicated enthusiasm they had shown the last time we saw them!!! All of them had great fun […]

Leão Teixeira Seminar 2020

Leão Teixeira Seminar 2020 On Friday the 28th February, New School BJJ held a seminar under, 7th Degree Red and Black Belt, Leão Teixeira. It wasn’t surprising that we had a huge turnout, as it’s not everyday that you get a chance to train with someone who received their black belt over thirty years ago. To begin the session, Leão Teixeira, known by his nickname Zé, thanked everyone for attending and then gave an explanation on his philosophy of how he trains in Jiu-Jitsu and what he focuses on. He explained that the fundamental aspect everyone should train is their ability to have a good defence. His reasoning behind this is that when your defence is good, it makes it […]

Two New Brown Belts

Two New Brown Belts at New School BJJ!!! The front row of our grade order line up has gotten a little bigger! Two of our students, Ryan Graham and Dwayne Ewart, were recently awarded their well deserved brown belts. Everyone who trains in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) knows that there’s really no room for chasing grades. There are martial arts styles and systems out there where you can earn a black belt after three to four years of dedicated training. Unfortunately, BJJ isn’t one of them. On average, it can take around ten to twelve years to be awarded a BJJ black belt. To earn a brown belt could take seven to eight years and that could entail training four or […]
