Gym Opening Hours & visits

Premier Training Facility for Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) in bury

Our gym is a Members only club, it  offers classes 7 days per week. There are morning and evening sessions on weekdays and lunchtime session (dependant on demand),  and morning sessions at the weekends. Unfortunately we do not allow spectators in classes, we also don’t offer taster sessions in the members classes,  but you’re free to view over 600 hours of lessons on our you tube channel. There is only one non members class a week, bookable a minimum 24 hours in advance, details here

The gym is only open during classes so if the gym happens to be open and you randomly turn up you will be turned away as there is no receptionist and this will be distracting for the class.
