Is it OK to train even if I have never trained any martial arts before?
Of course! Over 80% of members have never trained any martial arts before. Even head instructor Tsuyoshi did not have any experience before he started BJJ. You can also try out one free session to see if you like it.
I’m busy in the evenings, are there any classes in daytime?
Yes! We hold early morning sessions twice a week as well as regular lunchtime sessions.
Are there any changing rooms?
We have male and female changing rooms available which are both fitted with individual showers.
Can I rent a gi?
Yes, we have several sizes of gis which you can rent for ￡10 per class. You also get a towel with this for the shower afterwards.
Are there any private lockers for members?
Yes, we have private lockers & a gi cleaning service available. Please ask staff for more information.
Is there an option to take private classes?
Yes of course - all of our instructors can offer further technical assistance at a time to suit you. Whatever your level and whatever your goals are we will help you achieve them.
I don’t have a gi. Where can I buy one?
Gis are available to buy from the dojo - just ask one of the instructors to help.
I’m still a bit nervous, is there anything else I should know?
We really want you to feel welcome at Carpe Diem BJJ. If you have any questions or worries please let us know and we will do our best to help.
