Competitions provide fantastic opportunities for students to focus their training, set personal goals and challenge themselves, enhancing their overall learning and development within the sport. Participation in competitions also teaches students many valuable skills, including discipline, dedication, respect, humility and sportsmanship, all of which we believe are fundamental traits to building successful people in life.
At Gracie Barra Derby and Ilkeston we have dedicated competition training sessions and adopt a team approach to training, which we believe has been integral to our student’s success over the years, in both BJJ & MMA. Our instructors, and more experienced competitors, act as role models and mentors, ensuring all team members enjoy the process of preparing for competitions and have the best experience of competing, regardless of the result.
