Re: Brazilian Ju Jitsu in Geneva

tchadwick82: I'm not in Geneva, I'm way up in Bern, but I'm a fellow grappler! Strict BJJ for about 3-4 years, then went over to no-Gi for the following years. I love it I've found a place here that I can roll a few times a week, but if your ever up this way, let me know, and maybe we can find a mat somewhere and get some practice in.

Good luck with your search!

Right, like going flat on your stomach would actually prevent some damage...
Or making leg takedowns ilegal...

Headlines for 2012:

"Winner of the olympic gold for judo by super-ippon"

Re: Brazilian Ju Jitsu in Geneva

What's an approximate tuition per month? Does the BJJ help to loose weight?

Re: Brazilian Ju Jitsu in Geneva

russiangeneva: In short, yes it can help you lose weight, but so can any other strenuous physical activity. If your primary goal is weight loss, and you want to also learn a martial art, then try a bunch of different ones, and see which one you like the best. It's more important that you enjoy the art, the teacher, and the other students and want to continue doing it. If you like it, you will keep doing it, and the weight will come off on it's own.

And for average tuition, it seems around here (Bern) about 100CHF per month seems to be typical, for about 3 days a week training. Although that can vary a lot.

Good luck!

Not really, that's one side of the game but it's not the full picture.
