Welcome to Pedro Bessa Brazilian Jiu Jitsu School

The Pedro Bessa Brazilian Jiu Jitsu School is open to people of all levels and it has affiliated schools throughout the United Kingdom & Republic of Ireland; we pride ourselves on the quality of teaching, therefore we ensure that students are absorbing the art and developing their BJJ skills.

As a competitor himself, Professor Pedro Bessa encourages the more dedicated students to take part in tournaments in order to test their skills under pressure; and perhaps take BJJ to a high competitor level.

Typically the class is friendly in a relaxed atmosphere, also building close friendships between the team, learning & helping each other improve and consequently help the group to develop as a whole. The class consists of stretching and warm up drills, then focusing with a partner to learn the basics of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu; For those already more experienced, then comes the sparring, which gives the students the opportunity to put in practice what has been taught.

Feel free to visit any of our schools, our headquarters is located in Bristol at the Sweatbox Gym.
