About Koba BJJ
We are a friendly club based in Dorking Surrey, training in all aspects of Brazilian jiu-jitsu (aka. BJJ) and submission grappling.
We pride ourselves on creating a fun but hard working environment.
We cater to all levels and have classes for kids and beginners.
We train in the Gi (traditional uniform, like a judo gi) and no gi, shorts and a rash guard.
Most of the classes are no gi as we believe this is what can make you a more effective grappler.
If you wish to compete, or simply learn an effective martial art in a nice environment we have everything you need!
What is Brazilian Jiu-jitsu?
Brazilian Jiu-jitsu, or Bjj, is a grappling martial art focusing on ground fighting.
The techniques employed enable a smaller person to defeat a larger stronger opponent.
A system of joint locks and chokes are the primary tools of BJJ. However a strategy of positional dominance can also be employed to allow a practitioner to use strikes to subdue an opponent.
Bjj has always been essential in the sport of MMA and to this day is an important part of the training.
Bjj is also a growing sport worldwide, with submission grappling or no gi jiu-jitsu becoming popular.
Because of it’s proven effectiveness and the fact that the main training known as ‘rolling’ or sparring is so much fun Bjj continues to grow in popularity worldwide.
