UPDATED 26 DECEMBER 2021
This page lists the most recent guidelines for practising BJJ in the UK. Please check back regularly.
Clubs and gyms affected by coronavirus restrictions should check whether they can claim any support funding – we have produced a guide to available support HERE.
Following this afternoons announcement by the First Minister we regret to announce that from Boxing day indoor contact training will have to stop for up to 3 weeks.
Non contact training e.g dummy classes & conditioning classes can still take place but gyms must ensure that 1m social distancing is in place at all times.
It is advised that if you do run non contact classes during this time you keep changing areas closed and participants attend in their training gear.
