BJJ Family

I made my big, scary, indefinite move overseas knowing that if the UK BJJ community was anything like Australia’s – it would provide a great deal of support, friendship and maybe even a surrogate family.

I’m still getting to know my ‘pommy jitsu’ crew, but back home the Australian Elite team and Girls In Gi are making me feel so damn proud.

We all have that special connection to our home club. It’s the place where solid friendships and even relationships are forged, and where we record so many milestones in our Jiu Jitsu (and overall fitness) journeys…

I can only imagine how heartbreaking this fire has been for Legacy Martial Arts.

But what incredible spirit, and what a wonderful show of support from other clubs – more than $10,000 raised and counting!

“On the 7th September, our gym in Chippendale was destroyed by a criminal act of arson. It was our home. As a show of support and family spirit we continued our training in the park the following day.”
