For BJJ, and in many martial arts, each stripe on your belt signifies that you are one step closer to reaching the next level. Getting the fourth stripe means you are very close to reaching a goal and if you work that little bit harder you will achieve it and attain greater knowledge. This is the ethos of our company which is why we chose the name.
At 4STRIPES we celebrate the best kind of awesomeness – the kind that comes from perfecting yourself. Our Mission is to promote Jiu Jitsu and martial arts in Asia, and to create opportunities to train with the world’s best instructors. If you are OK, we will make you good; If you are good, we’ll make you awesome.
Yes! The camps are open to ALL teams and associations.
These private camps cater for all Jiu Jitsu enthusiasts, female or male and of all belt levels.
4Stripes BJJ training camps bring the world’s best martial arts instructors to Hong Kong to lead, teach and share. Workshops on fitness, nutrition, flexibility, strength, movement, conditioning, yoga and meditation are also held throughout the camps with the aim of complimenting intensive BJJ training.
All training sessions and workshops will be conducted in English.
