I’ve visited a lot of gym in my jiu jitsu journey in the uk, Italy and Thailand including big names like Tiger Muay Thai and Phuket top team, this place is by far the best place I’ve trained and also my favorite! Whether you want to become a world champion, do it for self defense or just as hobby this place is definitely what you’re looking for... you’ll be insane not to train here! Not only by being phenomenal athletes Bryn, Ffion, Omied, Ben and Kane are also great instructors and put a lot of work, time and dedication for this gym. I owe everything to them for what they’ve taught me because without their patience and ways of teaching they made me understand so many simple and crucial things that changed my game and completely blew my mind and still are today ! I always walk out this place with a big smile on my face and with something new in my arsenal. No matter how bad my day has been I know CF24 Jiu Jitsu will always be there to take my mind completely off everything and just train ! Thank you guys for everything again!

CF//24’s Beginners course totally transformed my approach to Jiu Jitsu. Anyone who takes up Jiu Jitsu will be all to familiar with the experience of feeling completely helpless as a more experienced roller slowly and effortlessly bypasses all your defences and proceeds to peel you apart as if by using some Jedi mind trick. Likewise anyone will know the feeling of finally managing to get to a dominant position, whether by design or by chance, only to find yourself completely cluesless as to how to proceed. By incorporating simple, generalised ideas from the course I now feel I have tools that I can use in any situation, against any opponent and I have clear methods of how to defend myself and how to attack. Rather than finding myself wracking my brain for some specific move I have learned, and getting my butt kicked whilst I’m wasting time in the process, I now have basic techniques I can turn to and I feel more fluid and dynamic as a result and I feel my Jiu Jitsu has improved immesureably. CF//24’s team take a fundamentally difference approach to any other gym I have been to and this is especially evident in the Beginners Course. The team have clearly spent a lot of time and effort deconstructing the mechanics of BJJ at a fundamental level to extrapolate key elements which are applicable across all levels and which form the foundations of any strong Jui Jitsu game. The Beginners course focuses heavily on the key concepts involved in defending yourself from attack, escaping from losing positions and controlling and manipulating your opponents body by looking at concepts like lines of defence, the use of space, the application of leverage and pressure and a whole lot more. Bryn, Omied and Ffion are genuinely passionate about teaching and helping people grow and develop their BJJ. The course has the feel of a private lesson with great explanation and disscussion throughout and loads of time to ask questions and pick the brains of the instructors. Handy print outs of everything covered are provided so you can review everything at home. Nothing is too much trouble for these guys and they are very generous with their time. In short, I can’t imagine a better way to begin you BJJ journey and get a strong foundation on which to build. The course is more than worth the cost for the tuition alone. Throw in a Gi and a Months Training and you really can’t go wrong!

After training for a month (which included the Beginner Course) at CF24 Jiu Jitsu, I am very impressed with everything I have seen and experienced at the school. The Beginner Course does a great job of introducing fundamental strategies, movements and concepts in BJJ and I would highly recommend it to anyone new to the sport, as well as those (such as myself) who have some previous experience but wish to gain a good foundation. Regular sessions are well planned and follow a clear systematic progression between sessions, with successive sessions working through a consecutive series of positions and techniques to give a deep understanding of a particular area. Techniques are demonstrated and explained clearly by the coaches and any questions from students are addressed. The atmosphere at CF24 is positive and friendly; people of a large range of abilities train, but there are no egos or overly aggressive members as can be a fear for people starting in a martial art. Finally and perhaps most importantly, the coaches at CF24 are top class. They are knowledgeable and enthusiastic about BJJ, with competitive success at the highest levels. Every time I have asked why a technique is performed a certain way I have received detailed, well thought out answers which illistrate the impressive extent of the coaches' experience in BJJ. From my time at the club, I can't recommend it highly enough. If you are in Cardiff and want to get sweaty, roll around and choke people, CF24 is the place.

Bryn and Ffion are both incredible teachers and competitors. Both are extremely friendly and their love for jiu jitsu is obvious and very infectious. I'd happily recommend CF24 to anybody looking to get into jiu jitsu whether for fun or for competitive reasons!
Our aim is to develop a culture of learning, hard work and hard training.
We focus on teaching a complete and overall understanding of what makes Jiu Jitsu work, enabling our students to understand the ‘why’ of each position.
By building an understanding of the underlying principles and concepts of jiu jitsu our students will be empowered with the freedom to then creatively develop their own style, and take charge of their own training.
