I have trained with the team for 7 years now & it has been life changing. I have earned my purple belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu & I love how both beginners and competitors are embraced with the same enthusiasm.

Great welcoming atmosphere and fantastic instruction from BJJ black belt Oisin McCabe. For so many reasons, I would not want to train anywhere else.
