High-Quality Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Classes

in Kingston-Upon-Thames

Kingston Jiu Jitsu (formerly Jiu Jitsu Brotherhood London) is a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) academy based in Kingston-upon-Thames. We have classes for adults and children, and students aged between 5 and 65 training with us on the mats 7 days a week.

With over 300 students, we are the largest and longest established BJJ academy in Kingston and are renowned for our friendly and welcoming atmosphere and great team spirit. We are affiliated to the Mauricio Gomes Legacy Team.


Our beginner’s courses are the ideal introduction to Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) and are specifically designed to give students a strong foundation to enable them to join our other classes. Our next beginner’s course starts on Wednesday, January 8th 2020 and runs on Wednesday evenings from 6-7 pm at Tiffin Sports Centre in Kingston. You will have a good understanding of the basics of BJJ by the end of the 8-week course.


“Such an amazing academy. I’ve sampled many academies now, and this has to be one of the most welcoming clubs with very attentive coaches, whom adapt their approach to each individual to encourage progression.

If you’ve heard about the benefits of BJJ & are wanting to try out a class – this is somewhere you’ll feel welcomed, encouraged and safe.”

Beau Rambaut Kingston Jiu Jitsu Student

“10 months ago I signed up for Jiu Jitsu Brotherhoods beginners classes and it’s proven to be one of my best decision to date. The classes taught me some self-defence techniques as well as the fundamentals of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, giving me the confidence and eagerness to continue training after the course completed. Starting a martial art can be intimidating, I was hesitant at first, but Marc’s friendly welcoming nature made it easy to come back week after week. My training partners became my friends fast! That’s a testament to the club spirit Marc and Nic have created here!”

Joshua Sadraoui Kingston Jiu Jitsu Student

“I have been training with the club for just over 5 months. My husband had been telling me for over a year that I would really enjoy it, and I’m glad I finally took his advice! The teaching is world class, and everyone is incredibly friendly. No matter what level they are all members are happy to share their knowledge and coach us newbies.”

Emma Pinto Kingston Jiu Jitsu Student

“Awesome Jiujitsu club. The instructors are all extremely accomplished and knowledgeable. Great bunch of people. Great competition team. Loads of really engaging seminars with legendary practitioners. Really lovely kids section. Having done judo, my son started training there and I followed and it’s the best thing I’ve done for myself for years. The recent change over to Mauricio Gomes Legacy team is super exciting. Definitely the best club in the area if you’re considering taking up BJJ.”

Tom Skivington Kingston Jiu Jitsu Student

“I really felt welcome joining Kingston Jiu Jitsu after training at Carlson’s for four years. Everyone is very friendly and it was easy for me to fit in.

There is something for everyone – busy kid’s club, competition team, self defence, women’s only classes, muay thai and yoga.
Since I have been training there has also been some great seminars too – Mauricio Gomes, Daniel Strauss and Ben Poppleton to name a few.

It is headed by Marc and Clare who are really kind and generous people and you can see that the culture of the club follow their footsteps. Highly recommended – come say Hi.”

Dan Lau Kingston Jiu Jitsu Purple Belt

“I have boys aged 10, 14 and 15 & they all love this club. Great way of building strength and fitness whilst having lots of fun with friends. At home my boys love to wrestle each other – this club harnesses that urge to wrestle within safe boundaries. I am also delighted they are learning techniques that give them the ability to defend themselves should it ever be necessary. Great club!”
