Brazilian Jiu Jitsu

Nelson BJJ Futuwwa Club

"In an age when people are celebrating the sports of paupers, it is time for us to celebrate the Sports of Kings!" Shaykh Ibrahim Osi Efa.

The ancient, noble and prophetic art of grappling or rolling is one such sport. Our aim as an organisation is to provide an opportunity for local people to discover an important sunnah discipline and indeed strive to master the art of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.


Sessions currently take place at Nelson and Colne College on Saturday nights at 7pm till 8:30. They are open to males aged 16+ and suitable for completed beginners. Sessions are delivered by Instructors affiliated with Team Sukata, Liverpool.

If you are interested in becoming a club member, please call the club secretary on 07788270413. We have limited places at these sessions, so will be unable to accomodate anyone who turns up unannounced at these classes. 

Fees and Membership

Fees are payable monthly and currently set at £25 per month for 1 session per week. There is currently no option for pay as you go membership, although this may be reviewed in the future. The membership secretary will offer standing order forms for members. Current members need to attend sessions regularly as a condition of their membership. If attendance, without informing the management team, falls under 50% in a month we reserve the right to terminate your membership. If you are planning on missing several sessions, please inform us and we will happily ensure your slot remains - payment will be due each month you are a member and is not determined by your attendance. 

Hygiene and Code of Conduct

  • Your GI or workout clothes must be clean. The easiest way to ensure this is by washing your clothes after each session.
  • Large or dirt nails are prohibited. Keep trimmed and clean.
  • Bring a spare pair of slippers with you if you are planning on training barefoot. Should you wish to leave the mat area, do not walk out of the area without slippers on.
  • Maintain a high level of personal hygiene to avoid sweat related infectious diseases as reported by the NHS. Do not train if you have an infectious disease.
  • We highly recommend to wear a rashguard under the GI.
  • Keep your training partners safe: not hurting them is far more important than getting a submission. Apply submissions slowly, stay controlled at all times, and if for some reason they won’t tap, let go.
  • Arrive for training on time. 
  • Remove piercings and jewellery

Team Sukata (Instructors) Welcome Message

By joining this program, you will learn the core fundamental techniques of  Jiu-Jitsu in a safe, cooperative, & friendly environment.

Each lesson addresses both standing and ground self-defence techniques. You can participate within the class without previous experience or fear of injury. Your safety and technical growth are our number one concern; there is no obligation or pressure to spar in any of our classes. If you have ever been unsure about trying martial arts for fear of injury, embarrassment, or any other reason, then our Jiu-Jitsu proprietary training program program is for you. Jiu-Jitsu consists of hundreds of techniques, and after years of studies and experience of real fights statistics have shown that  jiu-jitsu has been used more often and with greater success than all other martial arts techniques combined.

New students need absolutely no experience to begin this program; our black belt instructors conduct classes daily and are committed to ensuring that every new student has an enjoyable & safe experience regardless of age, gender, or athletic ability.

We look forward to seeing you & welcoming you to our jiu-jitsu family.
