One of the most popular programs here at UFC GYM Singapore is our Brazilian Jiu-jitsu program. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, or BJJ, is very popular among our members because not only does it provide a full-body workout, but it builds character and mental strength as well. UFC GYM’s BJJ program allows you to take what you learn on the mat and apply it to your everyday life. If you’re looking for a new workout that can improve your overall physical AND mental well-being, UFC GYM’s BJJ is for you. Here are a few things you can expect in a UFC GYM Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu class:


Our Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu program is being led by Professor Takeo Tani. He currently serves as the Head Coach of the Singapore Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu National Team. Under his continued tenure as Head Coach, the Singapore national team has achieved award-winning results on the international stage, having won 2 golds, 1 silver and 4 bronze medals at the 2019 SEA Games. Our instructors know what it takes for our students to reach their goals in the sport.


In Jiu-Jitsu, respect is expected as soon as you step onto the mat. Students come into the class to line up and bow to the instructor. Students will then begin a full-body warm-up, followed by a stretch. A proper warm-up helps to prevent injury.


Students will learn a series of techniques and/or drills depending on the level of the class. We offer beginner, intermediate, and advanced training. Students will learn all of the fundamental techniques through our BJJ curriculum and will move to more advanced techniques as they progress. Depending on the level of the student, we conduct our training in a safe controlled environment for students to practice techniques on a resisting opponent.


At the end of every class, we do a cool down with a class message. If it is a Gi class this is the time to stripe students' belts once the instructor feels a student is ready. Students will then line up and bow out of class.


Students who regularly partake in the Gi classes will have the opportunity to move up in rank. We follow the International Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Federation standards in our program. We have a full belt promotions system where UFC GYM students have the opportunity to move up in belt rank, from White all the way up to Black Belt.


The BJJ community is paramount to what makes our program so successful. It is the relationship between instructors and students, and students with other students that keep the atmosphere engaging and fun. By the nature of martial art, we have a special bond and trust with our peers. This interaction, with the growth of the students' BJJ skills mentally and physically, keeps our members consistently in the gym trying to reach that next level. Everyone who partakes in BJJ is a part of a team and large family inside the UFC GYM community that stretches to our clubs all around the world.
