BRAZILIAN JIU JITSU CLASSES

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Classes at London’s Commando Temple with Coach & Personal Trainer, David Goodall

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, founded by the Gracie family in the early 1900’s, is founded on the principles of efficiency of movement, patience and opportunity, and control of an opponent. Jiu jitsu methods allow a smaller, weaker fighter to dominate a larger, stronger opponent through practising correct technique and taking the fight to the floor. In the early days of mixed-martial arts competition Ultimate Fighting Championship, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu practitioners dominated their competition. We teach the basics of this absorbing and multi-faceted combat sport, teaching a variety of guards, grappling, position, movement, basic attacks and take-downs.

Our Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Classes are ideal for beginner- to intermediate-level athletes and cover technique drilling, specific sparring, and full sparring sessions. We keep them small (12 mixed-ability trainees at the most) so that everyone gets the best out of every session.

David’s 10 years of BJJ experience, as well as his passion for learning and teaching, have made him an exceptional Purple Belt, which he was awarded by highly regarded instructor and 2nd degree black belt, Felipe Alves de Souza. He’s fought a number of competitive fights, and trained alongside notable athletes such as ‘Draculino’ Magalhães. Don’t miss the opportunity to train in Brazilian Jui Jitsu with our resident expert. We run two sociable and friendly group classes a week as well as a session dedicated to sparring.

I enjoy training with David as his clear passion for the art form, his selflessness in passing on the techniques and his consummate professionalism while grappling in some challenging positions is inspiring me to continue to practice Brazilian Jujitsu, improving my fitness and agility and has brightened my Mondays.

David trains from the heart and I love spending time with people who are passionate about what they do - it is infectious and I leave every session feeling invigorated and renewed.

David is considerate in his Brazilian Jujitsu lessons, making sure that he demonstrates the right level if strength vs technique and fearless in the face of you attempting reciprocal techniques. In the brief time that I have been training with him, my skills have improved exponentially and many of the techniques can be effectively used for self-defence as well as improving your fitness and agility.

I started training with David because I was new to Brazilian Jujitsu and I wanted to learn the basics 1-2-1 before attempting a mixed class. David has been encouraging and supportive in his instruction which has allowed me to build confidence and technique in parallel, the physicality of the discipline and David's patience in teaching has resulted in improved strength and agility and I continue to see improved muscle tone as I progress.
