What people say about the course

Happy members are one of our top priorities – specially in the beginner course

Jungi is a great coach who sets a fantastic atmosphere for drilling and rolling. I LOVED that the intro to the class always emphasised safety. Speaking of rolling, the mat was full of highly skilled people who were kind and helpful to a white belt like me.

Awesome gym with friendly people and a welcoming atmosphere focused on learning. Fully English classes make it the prime gym for internationals which creates a very interesting mix of people. This is where I started my BJJ journey, best place to do so 🤙

Excellent BJJ gym. Laid back, but challenging atmosphere. The beginners course was just next level compared to the one I had taken before at another gym. This included way more actual fighting. It’s hard, but teaches you fast. Recommend!

Lauri T.


I've passed a beginner course and can definitely recommend it and this BJJ academy in general. The gym is in good condition, the coaches (especially the coach of the beginner class Jungi) are professionals and passionately love to teach BJJ.

Participated in a course. The lessons were very interesting and fun, so much to learn in every class but the learning was always accomplished with the help of the great instructors. Can’t imagine life without jiu jitsu because of these guys :)

Easily the best Jiu-Jitsu dojo in Helsinki. The teachers are great and clearly passionate. The beginners course was excellent and not a single person in our group dropped out.
