    Hey all,

    i have just joined today and i asked in my intrduction thread about a martial art to start. Brazilian jiu jitsu was mentioned i have had a little read about it and it does seem quiet a challenge which is good. but after searching my local area, i cant seem to find any classes near me. so firstly does anyone know of any classes in the liverpool/wirral area. secondly if no what other martial art would you recommend, i have been told that Komyokan Dojo is a good placxe to study aikido. and that does seem rather a good one to study. just asking for opinions thanks

    I'm not entirely sure that there is a BJJ gym/dojo on the wirral. I haven't had an in depth look though (I live in West Kirby). There are a lot of MA's around though if you can use :D
    I have friends that do, Judo, JJJ, Ninjutsu, TKD, there is a Kick boxing coach who has been alluding me and The_Lump, Sander, WuShu and Wing Chun and a least 3/4 karate places.
    Lots of stuff around, not sure about liverpool though.

    On the Wirral, there is quite a range of MAs. I don't know of any BJJ clubs, but there's Judo, Japanese Jiu Jitsu, Ninjutsu and Karate everywhere.

    I'd suggest my Judo club, it's at Woodchurch Leisure Centre. Here's the site

    Japanese Jiu-Jitsu can be found in Moreton, amongst other places. There isn't too much sparring because it is mostly locks (Judo is Jiu-Jitsu sparring).

    Ninjutsu in Leasow.

    Shoto-Kan Karate in West Kirby (if the club is still going), and Goju-Ryu in Greasby.

    If you need any more details about either one, I could track some down ^^.

    Well, I go on Wednesdays. Though they teach on Mondays I think as well (I've only just started there :p).

    Contact Details from the club site

    It's in the Sandbrook Community Centre.

    Small mat area, and it's a small club, and so the teaching is very close to one on one.

    If it isn't your cup of tea, and you want something with more sparring then try Judo (pimping my club ^^).

    Do Judo, it's much closer to Brazilian Jiu Jitsu than Japanese Jujutsu is.

    Yep, considering BJJ is actually Brazilian Judo. (Judo coach went over there to teach judo, but the style got called Jiu-Jitsu :s).

    There's Toshindo (Birkenhead) and Bujinkan (Rock Ferry, Ellesmere Port). Who teaches what at Leasowe?

    My mistake, that may have just been a seminar.

    I'll leave Ninjutsu up to you ^^.

    Wow, you must be used to travelling quite a bit if you go from Merseyside to Cheshire.

    It's about 30 minutes drive to train at a 'world class' facility, not that big a deal in my opinion!

    I'm sure a few of my friends do BJJ in Liverpool, but i'll have to check.

    Sure it is, if you need to get a lift just to be able to get there. An hour's travelling time isn't fun in any case (unless your car is full of hot chicks).

    Just found out there's JKD in Upton too. As well as Muay Thai and a seriously saturated Karate / TKD market which I forgot to mention.

    Why is it that we have so few MAists with all of these schools about? :confused:

    do you think playing football and doing a martial art will be too much or could i do both?
