Prodigy MMA is located in Brookvale, one suburb away from Manly and offers training in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu or BJJ as its more commonly known. BJJ is a relatively modern martial art made famous by the Gracie family and its use as one of the three main styles used in Mixed Martial Arts (MMA). The founding principle is that a smaller physically weaker opponent can dominate a physically much larger opponent through the correct application of technique and leverage. The end goal of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is to force your opponent to give up by "tapping out" through manipulation of a joint to cause pain or a correctly applied choke.
Our Brookvale MMA gym can teach all you need to know about BJJ with our state of the art facility, exceptional instructors and relaxed friendly atmosphere. Our dedicated grappling area is probably the largest in the area and features two separate competition areas as well as a fully padded floor and walls. This allows you to train in safety while executing powerful hip and shoulder throws with your partner, learning how to single and double leg and all the other submissions and control techniques used in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.
We can teach you how to execute armbars, kimuras, americanas, omoplatas, gogoplatas, heel hooks, leg locks, rear naked chokes, lapel chokes and thousands of other techniques. You will then have these techniques at your disposal, either for self defence or competition/training purposes. If you want to measure your progress we offer a well structured syllabus with regular opportunities to grade from white belt through to black belt. Our syllabus ensures you have moves readily available from all positions and that your game is well rounded. So if you live in Manly we recommend you head over to Prodigy MMA in Brookvale and give it a try, you can do a trial class with no obligation to join or simply jump straight in the deep end and join up, either way you wont forget it.
