“Aaron was always an extremely shy child and he spent one year at Maria Holder Government Hill nursery where he rarely talked. The BJJ classes have helped him greatly to improve his self confidence even according to his teacher and I am forever grateful.

A LeacockTot BJJ Student

This is the only school on the island where you can get proper BJJ training. The facility is spacious and clean, the community is tight-knit and relaxed, and the classes are practical. It’s mostly gi but they do some no gi classes as well. Highly recommended!"

StanisBJJ Student

As a Bajan who has been passionate about grappling for over 10 years, I’ve made more progress and have developed a much deeper understanding of BJJ not simply as a practice but as a way of life in the last year than in the ten plus years prior. Oss
