GET IN SHAPE & STAY IN SHAPE.

​Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu challenges you physically and mentally. It’s a thinking-man’s artform. You learn how to defend yourself while getting a fantastic full body workout, and the community energy will have you come back regularly which will keep you in-shape. No normal gym membership can give you that. Jiu-Jitsu is a unique and highly effective martial art, that teaches students how to use leverage (their body weight and mechanics) against someone else. BJJ has evolved into both a self defense art but is also wildly popular as a sport. It’s highly addictive and incredibly fun. Most people get the “BJJ Bug”. They can’t stop thinking, talking and doing Jiu Jitsu!

PRACTICAL SELF-DEFENSE TECHNIQUES

The idea of defending yourself against a much larger, stronger attacker can be a scary thought for most. BJJ was designed to help you demolish those fears through evidence-based learning.

Our program teaches students how to take the fight to the ground using safe, effective, fundamental takedown methods, and how to control and end the fight on the ground. The techniques in BJJ are also gradually tested against resistance making Jiu-Jitsu the most practical of art forms giving real time feedback. Anyone can learn and apply this, and that includes you!

DEVELOP TRUE CONFIDENCE. WALK WITH PRIDE

What we all secretly want is unbreakable confidence. There just isn’t a feeling like knowing you are strong, mobile and can do what you want without fear. Man or Woman, Young or Old, Strong or Weak – despite where you might be at the start of this journey, just know that training Jiu-Jitsu will give you the knowledge that you can leverage your body’s strength to accomplish things you never thought possible. With time, you will notice an increased self-confidence. You’ll walk a little taller and with more pride. This will positively impact every other part of your life, be it at work or home.

COMPETITIVE? BJJ TOURNAMENTS IS THE CHALLENGE YOU NEED

Students who are naturally competitive love Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu because it’s practiced as both a sport as but also a self-defense method. When the time is right, BJJ requires students to spar in class (and we slowly introduce this), but many students who have advanced in skill can choose to compete to prove their ability or to advance to new levels of achievement. If you’re competitive, this is where it’s at! At Iron Grip, competitions are not mandatory.

“I like the feeling of coming home after a class. The coaches at Iron Grip Martial Arts are able to break a move down into such minute detail that it alleviates all confusion.

Each coach, as they are on their own journey as well, may have a slightly different way of teaching a particular technique and that is a good thing.

Learning the same technique from two different people, Reinhardt the flowy guy and Dave the steady guy, allows you to see where the technique fits into your own body type and way of moving, so that you get the best possible application of it to suit you.

These coaches are absolutely top-notch. I have taken part in enough sports codes and disciplines over the years to recognize world-class when I see it.”

“Jiu Jitsu has become a place where I find myself minus all the “BS” and Iron Grip is the family supporting me on this journey and providing that sacred space on the mats where we face our demons.

There is a bond between everyone at Iron Grip that is quite real and honest and it has been wonderful to also see how new members have been welcomed in with respect and with egos left at the door.

I’ve been in martial arts since the 1980’s and trained with some amazing people but also experienced some really bad attitude schools and I have long ago come to the conclusion that the students and their attitudes are always a direct reflection of the coach and as such, coaches shoulder a massive responsibility.

The spirit and the atmosphere at Iron Grip, in my view, are the direct results of our two coaches, Reinhardt Gallowitz and David Gillespie who exhibit absolutely no hints of a single pretense.

I started MMA and Jiu Jitsu in 2009 but in all honesty, I feel like my true Jiu Jitsu journey only began when I signed up with iron Grip in 2016.

I found home.”
