GB Gym ry offers excellent opportunities to do mixed martial arts (mma), Brazilian jiujitsu, submission grappling, kickboxing, thaiboxing, and traditional boxing. A beginner gets introduced to a new martial art by going through the basic course and more experienced aficionados can go to the advanced classes straight away. For kids and juveniles there are their own Brazilian jiujitsu groups where they can join without the need for a basic course first.
In every martial art the basic course lasts for 9 weeks and during that time there will be two training sessions each week. The basic training gives an introduction to the basic techniques of the sport as well as sport-specific vocabulary, rules, and normal practices. There is no need for a prior experience when signing up for the basic courses or to be in an excellent physical shape: in the beginning the force and intensity of the training will be on a level that people with all kinds of starting points have the possibility to adjust to the physical load. After the basic training the person will have enough skills and condition to go and train in the advanced classes.
The price entails the basic training (70 €), membership fee (20 €), and a personal access control badge (10 €). There will come an invoice including the basic training and membership fee and the access control badge will be paid at the gym when the basic course starts.
Two basic courses for the same person for the same training period will cost 160 €.
If you are already a member and have paid the training fee for the current training period (see prices) then the basic course will cost 50 €.

There is no separate basic course for submission grappling. To participate in the advanced classes it is mandatory to have the basic skills already and those are taught in the basic courses of both Brazilian jiujitsu and mixed martial arts (mma).
There are limited amount of people taken in the basic courses so advanced signing up is mandatory. Please, get to know the conditions of the courses as well as the rules and principles of our association before signing up.
The sign-up happens through our association’s memberships registry and invoicing system. After registering you will get a username and a password via email, which you can then use to sign-in and sign-up for courses. In the end the system will send you an invoice to your email address: you can make the payment either through online banking or at the gym with a card (debit/credit/Electron). Unfortunately, we cannot accept cash at this point.
Please take notice of these possibilities:

Common principles of GB Gym ry
Principles regarding training
It is important to consider the people you train with by keeping good care of your personal hygiene. Finger and toe nails should be cut so that no wounds or scratches happen. It is also good to wash your feet before continuing to the training area/tatami as most martial arts are done with bare feet. We recommend using flip-flops/sandals when you go from the dressing room to the training mat. All jewellery, watches, and piercings should be removed for the duration of the training. These can be dangerous to yourself as well as to the people you train with. At the first training session of the basic training the instructor will go through more specifically the gym etiquette and the basic practices of your chosen martial art. Feel free to ask anything that you are wondering about the training itself or anything that has to do with the course from the instructors.
In the beginning of the basic training course a t-shirt, shorts/slacks, and a water bottle are all you need. The people attending the basic course for boxing should also have shoes fit for boxing, such as boxing or wrestling shoes or any other indoor pair. People training other martial arts would do well with having indoor sandals or flip-flops for walking from the dressing rooms to the training area. The instructors of the basic courses will inform about the equipment you need and where you can get them at a later part of the course.
