Carlson Gracie Team Clapham Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu

About Us

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu or BJJ is a martial art based on grappling and ground fighting, focusing on the skill of controlling one’s opponent through techniques that force him or her to submit.

The popularity of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) has been on a steady rise over the years, thanks to the growing audience of MMA and most specifically the UFC.

 

Carlson Gracie Team inspired by Carlson Gracie Senior who was a highly influential figure in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, and is still considered to be one of the most significant individuals in the sports development, both as a competitor and as a coach at his legendary Carlson Gracie Academy (302) in Copacabana Rio.

 

We are excited to bring this heritage to South London to offer you the opportunity to train in this authentic Rio self-defence and fitness system. Classes are 90 minutes long and beginners are very welcome. 

 

The DoJo is easily accessible being next to Wandsworth Road Station and is approximately a 10 minutes walk from Clapham Common Tube and Queens Town Road stations.

Vauxhall, Stockwell, Brixton, and Balham are all easily accessible as we are situated in Battersea on the borders of Lambeth and Wandsworth.

Here you will discover one of the best places to train Brazilian Jiu Jitsu in London.

with a passion for Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and MMA, not by an odious accountant at some irksomely branded warriors academy.

Martin Foot - lead instructor of Carlson Gracie Clapham

Martin is a Black Belt under Sensei Dickie Martin. He has studied martial arts for over 35 years: 20 years of Wing Chun Kung Fu before training in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu for the last 15 years.

His fun but challenging approach to teaching makes BJJ both enjoyable to learn, yet also highly effective in its application.
Martin will help you become proficient in the art, whilst also developing your strength and conditioning, sense of well being, and your confidence. In time, you could even pick up a medal or two if you decide to compete for the club.
