About Eris Martial Arts

Eris Martial Arts gets its name after the planet orbiting the Sun and has it’s name from the Greek goddess of chaos, strife and discord.

Which is great for two reasons – First, we are one of the original 10th Planet Jiu Jitsu affiliates in the world. Second Jiu-Jitsu, at its core Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu tends to be chaotic, full of strife and discord. We teach our students to navigate this effectively and safely – and it transcends the sport and art – students learn to deal with chaotic nature of life.

About Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu

The safest and most effective martial art for self-defense.

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ), or Newaza, is a martial art and combat sport that focuses on grappling and ground fighting. BJJ is founded on the idea of a smaller, weaker person can successfully defend themselves against a bigger, stronger, heavier attacker. The proper technique, leverage, and timing is an integral part of training and therefore practitioners are encouraged to spar with one another.

Sparring, or rolling, is what sets BJJ apart from more traditional Japanese Jiu-Jitsu – the progressive nature of the joint locks and chokes used with BJJ allows for rigorous sparring, and lends to a safer experience than wrestling and judo. And since BJJ doesn’t rely on striking techniques, it notable safer than striking arts. Source.

Apart from being a martial art, it is also a sport, and is practiced across the world by individuals of all sex, age and race.It is a method for promoting physical fitness and building skills that bleed into the rest of the world: confidence, problem solving and ethical behaviour.
