Sharpen your technique and develop your game


Looking to take your Jiu Jitsu skills to the next level? This class is about sharpening your technique as you continue to progress your understanding of Jiu Jitsu.  Detailed technique with plenty of specific training and rolling can be expected in this class.
Recommended for students with a solid understanding of the fundamentals – this is to help ensure you have the knowledge and skills to keep up with the pace of instruction as well as execute the techniques safely. 

Build confidence for daily life

no gi classes

Training Jiu Jitsu without a GI (the kimono uniform traditionally worn in jiu jitsu) so terms the class; ‘No GI’.

No GI attire includes a rashie and shorts / tights. Training without a GI differs from regular classes in the training attire as well as the grips, pace, and strategy.

No GI offers diversified training to compliment our Gi classes and learning. 

Our No GI classes follow the same learning curriculum as our GI classes. 

Diversify & excel

Competition Classes

Not suitable for beginners or drop-in’s, our competition class has been developed for students who love to train hard.

With multiple competitions available with differing rule sets (IBJJF, ADCC, etc) our competition class explores techniques and training in accordance with these.

Our uniform rules may be relaxed in this class to allow students to practice in accordance with competition uniform requirements.

High paced, high energy and extremely technical. Tough rolls and no excuses here.

Integrate and solidify skills

Open mat

Open Mat is a chance for students to practice and train with each other. The focus here is live rolling (sparring) where you take all the techniques and skills you have acquired during your other classes and put them into practice.

By practicing with partners, we train our bodies and minds to react instinctively, committing essential techniques to muscle memory. Roll as much or as little as you need in this class -in open mat you take control of your own training needs and goals.

People from all walks of life love our jiu jitsu classes!

"Loving it. Portal is an inclusive environment that supports families, girls on the mat & beginners. (Our entire family are rolling now, including our 4yo, and myself as a bit of a nervous starter.) Prof. David makes sure the lessons are fun and that you're learning the underlying principals, not just going for flashy takedowns. This ethos filters down through the belts so there is respect and community on, and off the mat. Look forward to many years with the club. Oss 👊"

"Cannot rate Portal BJJ high enough. My experience of joining has been beneficial for me and my Daughter. The Professor and the other black belts are so passionate about BJJ and it is shown in the way they teach The culture set by Holly and Professor David is what sets it apart. It is an environment of support and encouragement and that’s from the top down.
