Thread: BJJ Newcastle?

  1. #1

    Default BJJ Newcastle?

    Thinking about going to BJJ, I'm a trad Judoka and JJ player. Way out of condition from work dominating time for the last year or so.

    I know of the Faktory and Gracie Barra locally to me. What's the best and friendliest clubs?

    I can highly recommend going to Gracie Barra with Speedy, he's a top guy and awesome teacher. A few of us travel down from Dundee to train with him as well as Speedy coming up here to teach.

    One of our guys trained under Speedy at Gracie Barra while he was in Uni. Says he is nothing but awesome, train with him.
