What Other Say About Our BJJ Norwich Classes
It’s easy to say we’re the best here at BJJ Norwich. Of course we’ll think that. But listen to what our members say about us, to see what they think about our brazilian jiu jitsu norwich classes.
“When I walked into the dojo at the BJJ Norwich Gym for the first time I was welcomed by everyone in the class. I never had the feeling of being the “new guy” as I did in other dojos. The friendly atmosphere makes you feel more like hanging out with friends.”
Felipe – Norwich
“I’ve been training with Steve at BJJ Norwich for five and a half years now. Although I had studied traditional Karate when I was younger, by the time I took up Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu I had’nt trained at all for fifteen years, and was pretty unfit, to put it mildly. I was also nearly forty, and worried that I might well be a bit too old to resume training in the martial arts. After a chat with Steve at bjj norwich, I started attending classes.I found myself actually looking forward to going training! ( rather than regarding it as a bit of a painful chore, as had sometimes been the case in the past with a more traditonal style). I’m happy to say that I’ve been training ever since. My fitness has improved out of all recognition to what it was, I’ve lost weight, and I am also pleased to say that I now hold a Blue Belt grade.
If you hav’nt trained in a martial art before, or think that you may be a bit too old, or not fit enough, don’t worry, give it a go. I really can’t recommend the club and Steve’s coaching highly enough” Bjj Norwich has helped me greatly
“I’ve trained martial arts off and on for about 5 years until a knee injury forced me to quit. I became interested in BJJ Norwich through watching MMA events. Luckily Steve was running training sessions at the BJJ Norwich gym. After speaking to Steve i was looking forward to my first session. I have found BJJ Norwich has enabled me to learn a new martial art without risking injury to my knee. The structure of the sessions is well thought out, Steve has a gift for teaching and makes sure your understand each movement in a technique and are comfortable with each technique before moving on to the next. The sessions help me keep in shape and each time i am able to reaffirm my knowledge of techniques learnt previously, be shown new techniques and practise sparring in a controlled environment. Thanks Steve for bringing BJJ Norwich to Norfolk!”
