ABOUT US

"At high tide, fish eat ants;

at low tide, ants eat fish"


- Thai Proverb

Low Tide BJJ Studio is Edinburgh's latest Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, martial arts and and fitness studio. Located in the heart of Canonmills, our studio has a clean, modern design and is fully equipped with over 500 square feet of judo mats, boxing and Muay Thai heavy bags plus a variety of weights and conditioning equipment. 

As a proud partner of London-based New School BJJ, and led by first degree BJJ black belt instructor Si Tutton, we offer a generous timetable of classes across the week, for both adults and kids. 

Whether an experienced BJJ practitioner or a complete novice, our classes are designed
to be accessible, rewarding and challenging for all levels.

 

We pride ourselves on teaching easy-to-learn, immediately effective jiu jitsu moves and techniques as well as remaining on the cutting edge of our rapidly evolving sport. While following our comprehensive White to Blue Belt beginners curriculum, students will learn those core concepts and positions of BJJ, which includes developing invaluable close-counters combat and self defence skills.

Beyond the basics, we continue to teach and explore the more complex, ever-evolving world of modern sports jiu jitsu while encouraging our members to discover their own individual style, and ultimately, sense of self expression.

  • Typical classes begin with a warm up consisting of functional movements, mobility flows and bodyweight exercises.
     

  • A fundamental technique, concept
    or position will then be taught and workshopped with the class before advancing to drilling a specific submission or sequence with a partner.

     

  • Finally, all classes end with some sparring, whether semi-resistant in
    set positions or, once experienced enough, fully-resistant ‘open rolling’. 

 

  • To end, we’ll warm down our bodies with a series of stretches and then our minds with a moment of breathing and still recovery.
