Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu

This afternoon, I had the pleasure of taking a group of Year 6 children to a taster session of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, at a local club called Triton BJJ.

We started off the session by getting warmed up and practising key Jiu-Jitsu skills such as ‘shrimping’ (I’ll let the children explain this!) and ‘cartwheels’. We then began ‘drilling’ which is a fundamental aspect of BJJ that helps to practise and improve different techniques. The children also learned some of the main positions including, how to get into ‘full mount; and a ‘closed guard’.

To finish, the children spent some time playing some games and having a go at some ‘sparring’.  There were a total of 4 schools all together so the children were partnered up with lots of different children this afternoon and I was incredibly proud of how well they worked together reciprocally and continued to support one another.

What a brilliant way to end the week, Year 6! The energy and enthusiasm you brought to the session was incredible – a huge well done to you all!
