This website is about Brazilian jiu jitsu (BJJ). I'm a black belt who started in 2006, teaching and training at Artemis BJJ in Bristol, UK. All content ©Can Sönmez

14/08/2020 - Covid training update

Class #1236
Artemis BJJ (my living room), Bristol, UK - 14/08/2020

Still just solo drilling, with a continuing focus on grilled chicken/shell guard. I've been telling my uke to put in more resistance, so that's been fun. Space is limited, which makes things difficult, plus the uke isn't somebody who trains BJJ. Even so, it's been useful having somebody to work off. This is as close as I've got to sparring since March, so I'll take anything I can get. ;)

I am planning to finally reopen Artemis BJJ classes in September. It will depend what government regulations allow at that point, meaning it could just be solo drilling classes. I'm hopeful that we might be able to train in 'pods' by that point, with the same 3 or 4 people every class, but we'll see. Either way, I'm in the middle of preparing: updating the ventilation, marking out spaces on the mats for social distancing, ordering infared thermometers, professional risk assessment, etc.

Keep an eye on the Artemis BJJ Facebook page for updates about reopening, should have more news soon. :D
