"It is not the critic who counts: not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming, but who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself for a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat." Theodore Roosevelt "Citizenship in a Republic"


Before you ask, we don’t do “cage fighting classes”

Taking the first step when starting something new is always the hardest part but you can be assured of a warm welcome when you come to our gym. For a start we know each and everyone by their first name, we are more like a group of friends and family that works really well together.


We have classes for men, women and children, the adults and children train in separate classes.

We have a seperate class for all beginners/white belts that focus on teaching the fundamentals that will set you in good stead to join the regular classes when you feel confident to do that.

Women also have the opportunity to train in a women only class instructed by the first UK female black belt Helen Currie. This class is suitable for beginners and advanced alike.

Please get in touch before you come down to train, don’t just turn up. If you come down to the gym to a session that may not suit you, you won’t be able to train and will have had a wasted journey. We are frequently full also so getting in touch will allow you to ascertain whether there is a place for you at the gym or not.

Please note also that Jiu Jitsu is a combat sport/martial art and although every care is taken there is still a chance that you may be injured, please check the Starting Jiu Jitsu section of this web site and understand that ALL students are strongly recommended to have valid, and relevant insurance.

We currently run all the adult classes with the gi/kimono (the traditional training uniform) except Wednesday and Thursday classes which is no gi (shorts and T-shirts). If you want to see which suits you best try both then decide. There are plenty of ‘gi versus no gi’ arguments on the internet if you feel the need to investigate.

If you would like to train in the gi class but do not yet have a gi, you can always borrow a gi top from us. Just let me know beforehand that you are coming down and I can have a top waiting for you.

For continuity in training we will work on a specific topic for a certain amount of time to make sure everyone understands it. We achieve this in part because we will have the same content of the class on a Monday and Tuesday then do the no gi version of it on the Thursday. If you train all week you get to train the same thing 3 times which helps to get the technique into your memory.

To continue training at Combat Base it is strongly recommended that all students have valid insurance and membership to cover all aspects of training, insurance is purchased through UKBJJA, please follow the link in the side bar to the left.
