If you live in the Brighton area and are looking to start a martial arts program for you or your children, BJJ Academy is definitely the place. With a full time Dojo we offer over 20 classes per week, you’ll be amazed at all you can accomplish in short period of time training the worlds most efficient martial art: Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.

I will list bellow why I believe the BJJ Academy is the ideal place to learn Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu in Sussex:


When you are looking to start learn something, your first concern should be the legitimacy and experience of the school where you will be learning from. You should be looking for a school with a certified Black Belt instructor on hand who teaches regular classes and has done so for some time. The practice of people teaching at lower ranks was a necessity about five years ago due to a high demand and so few Black Belts to teach the art, but at this point in time, most areas of the UK have Black Belt instructors within a reasonable distance. Another important thing about learning from a Black Belt as opposed to lower ranking people aside from the obvious issue of experience and ability to give rank when deserved is that you want to be your teacher’s student, not his training partner. People under the rank of black belt are still working on personal goals and may be a better training partner than teacher.

The BJJ Academy is the only place in Brighton where you will find a Brazilian-born, BJJ 1st Degree Black Belt: Professor Ivam Maciel, from Curitiba, Brazil. Ivam has over twelve years of experience. Has been training also in Vale-Tudo and Muay-Thai under the UFC Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva. Inside the octagon (MMA) Ivam’s professional record is 4-0-0, with three fights finished with his signature move: Triangle.

Well, nothing better to learn from a Master straight from the source!


Our timetable is flexible, no matter if you work shifts, you can always fit one training session to your schedule, the BJJ Academy will be your second home. From Sunday 1st of April, we will start our new timetable. It will be over 20 classes per week available, inclusive on Sundays! The Dojo is opened 7 days per week, 12 hours per day!


BJJ Academy is also a great place for kids! If you’re looking for something fun, educational and constructive to keep your kids out of trouble after school, you should look into our Kids Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Your kids will be entertained but they’ll also learn valuable life skills that they’ll never be without, so there is no reason why you shouldn’t get your kids involved in martial arts today!


We have students of all ages from all walks of life, and each one of them will gladly tell you how the art of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu has changed their outlook on life for the better. Children and young adults learn how to socialize with other kids in a healthy way, learning about the right way to deal with competition and other issues they may face as kids. Martial arts can literally help change anyone for the better, but you don’t know that until you give it a shot. Call 01273 411486 and JOIN THE CLUB TODAY!
