Before I began training Jiu Jitsu I was doing Pilates, natural movement and weight based training. While I enjoyed it I felt it lacked a certain challenge.  Since coming to RGA I have competed in more than 10 competitions, lost weight, gained fitness and made friends for life.  Becoming part of the team has helped me through a huge amount of personal struggles.

The atmosphere at RGA is relaxed and inclusive and I would never train anywhere else.  We have built up a great ladies team who are all about supporting and pushing each other to be our best possible selves.  My only regret is not starting sooner!

Started at RGA at 35, I was overweight and not very flexible.  I wasn't sure if BJJ was for me or if my body could take all the rolling around.

The beginners class is at your own pace.  Everything is broken down and explained really well.  Some things that look difficult you find easy and vice versa.  There is a good atmosphere at the club, very friendly and good banter amongst the members.  I found everyone at the club to be helpful and friendly.  They'll show you if you're doing something wrong and how to correct it.  I'd recommend the club and sport to anyone looking for something that will motivate them to keep in shape.

At first thinking about joining Jiu-Jitsu seemed like a pretty wild idea, because of the fact that I had never done grappling in my life.  After doing some research and finding the Royal Grappling Academy, I decided I would approach Roger and book in for my first class.  My overall impression of the place in my first visit was that everyone was very friendly between each other, especially with the new guys such as myself. I would definitely recommend Royal Grappling Academy to everyone that I know.

I joined Royal Grappling Academy almost 6 months ago.  What caught my attention was a very personal and relaxed approach by extremely experienced and professional coaches.

You might think at first that it is tough and difficult but the guys at the Academy will help you go through it as they are taking that sport to the next level. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu helped me with my resolutions - I quit smoking, lost weight and now I lead a healthy lifestyle.

Getting on the mats in Royal Grappling Aacademy last summer I was initially hesitant as I had not done any sport or martial arts in years.

Those nerves quickly disappeared after my first session owing to the friendly and encouraging atmosphere upheld by its members and coaches Roger and Foxy. I feel I have learned a lot since then and can't wait to train as much as I can in 2018.
