What does Open Mat Bermuda offer?

We offer training in all aspects of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Whether you’re looking for a great form of self defense; something to improve your fitness; something to increase your confidence; to make a few new friends; or you want to join our record breaking Competition Team, we have something for you at Open Mat Bermuda.

Our schedule of classes can be found below and don’t forget, as a new member, when you come to try a class, you’ll get to train in our foundation classes for the REST OF THAT MONTH… FOR FREE! That’s right! Turn up on the first of the month and you’ll get a whole month of training for nothing – and we’ll even let you borrow a gi, to get you started… we’re too kind, right!?! We just want you to love BJJ the way we do, and this seems like a pretty fair way to give you a taste of the sport that’s changed our lives for the better!

What does Open Mat Bermuda cost?

We’re not in this to make money. We’re in it for the love of the art. However, we do have rent to pay!

Adult membership is $225.00 per month. That will allow you access to all adult classes, and any open mat sessions, which are held on an ad hoc basis. Competition Team Training sessions are by invitation only.

Kids membership is $150 per month.

And don’t forget… everyone gets until the end of the month that they join, FOR FREE! That means if you come to us on the first day of the month, you get until the end of that month for free! It also means if you come to us part way through the month, you get until the END OF THAT MONTH, for free (hint: if you’re going to come, come at the start of the month!)

Gi Jiu Jitsu

Jiu Jitsu practiced in the traditional gi or kimono. The jacket and trousers can be used to manipulate and, ultimately, submit your opponent, by use of joint locks, chokes and strangles. This facet of jiu jitsu is like a chess match – methodical and technical, in its detail – the thinking person’s game.

NoGi Submission Grappling

Fast and furious, NoGi (or submission grappling) is akin to freestyle wrestling in its use of takedowns and pins, but with the added element of all submission attacks being allowed… this is a killer workout!

Kids Jiu Jitsu

If you want your kids to learn the value of discipline, respect, honour, tenacity, loyalty and teamwork; along with the physical abilities and self confidence to stand up for themselves… there is no better art than Brazilian Jiu Jitsu!


Most academies will offer you a free lesson or two. In our opinion, that’s not enough time to know if BJJ is the martial art for you.

So, here’s an offer for you… come and try a class, and you’ll get to train until the end of that month FOR FREE! That’s right… turn up on the first of the month and you’ll get a full month of training for absolutely NOTHING… we’ll even lend you a uniform to get you started!
