Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) is one of the fastest growing martial arts in the world today. The vibe in BJJ is different to a classic martial art (such as karate or aikido). Its style and culture make it feel more like a street sport, such as skateboarding or surfing, but with the added benefit of being one of the most efficient forms of self-defence in the world.

BJJ will take you on a journey. There will be highs and lows as you constantly challenge both your body and mind. It is a sport that forms close bonds with its practitioners and where the benefits of living a healthier lifestyle are encouraged and rewarded.Our aim at Carpe Diem BJJ London is to provide you with a safe and progressive environment that can support you on your journey. Whether your goal is to exercise and get fit, or to train and compete like a pro, we’ll be here for you and we’re sure you’ll have an amazing time.
