If your looking for a professional, knowledgeable, clean, focused place for you or your child to learn bjj then I couldn't recommend this place more. I have two children who learn here. The environment is that of any top level gym and the staff is knowledgeable and focused on you or your child learning not only a martial art but lessons they can carry everyday to make them stronger and better people

It can be pretty intimidating when you first walk in, but you are instantly greeted by friendly faces from both coaches and other students. I'm fairly new to BJJ and thought for sure in a big gym like ATT lowcountry I would fade into the background. That couldn't be further from the truth! Malachy takes the time to get to know all of his students and offers individualized instruction during classes. He's also kind of funny sometimes! Absolutely love this gym! Can't imagine training anywhere else!

I just started training here about two or three months ago. I travel full-time and have trained BJJ all over the world. There are a hand-full of places on the planet that make you feel like a member of the family from the moment you walk in. ATT Low Country is one of them! The BJJ here is top-notch and they have training 6 days a week, multiple classes. They have a great group of folks there, especially the owners Malachy and Sarah! I wouldn't hesitate to refer anyone to train here! Oss!

My first experience was a very good one.. everyone was very nice and helpful to me. I have zero experience in this art form. A warm but disciplined environment and very professional. I am excited about continuing to train here.. I will be back bet on that!

After recently moving to the Charleston area, I tried out a few gyms liking for the best fit. ATT lowcountry offered the exactly what I was looking for with a great schedule with multiple class times! Everyone was extremely welcoming and the teaching is top notch! Highly recommend!

About Us

“In my opinion, American Top Team is the BEST MMA camp in the country!”
– UFC Commentator Joe Rogan

Malachy Friedman, coach of Kimbo Slice, UFC’s Hector Urbina and Leo Kuntz is a black belt instructor at the #1 SCHOOL FOR MMA TRAINING IN FLORIDA. After training and coaching for over 8 years at American Top Team headquaters, in Coconut Creek, Florida; Malachy decided to bring the ever evolving Carlson Gracie Jiu-Jitsu to Charleston, SC.  Malachy Friedman received his black belt under legend Ricardo Libório; widely regarded in Brazilian jiu jitsu (BJJ) as the top black belt ever produced by Master Carlson Gracie, and an all around legend of the sport. Liborio was recently crowned 2015 ADCC Superfight Champion by defeating Mario Sperry. Liborio created two of the best teams in the world one being Brazilian Top Team and the other American Top Team, one of the MMA world’s biggest powerhouses.

ATT as it’s commonly referred to, has trained and developed over 100 plus fighters in the largest Mixed Martial Arts (“MMA”) organizations such as the UFC (“Ultimate Fighting Championship”), WEC, Strikeforce, Bellator, PRIDE, K-1, DREAMS and Sengoku.

That same knowledge, born out of hard work, perseverance, and dedication honed from our professional MMA and BJJ fight team, has been passed down to our students who train in: MMA, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (“BJJ”), Submission Grappling, Judo, Kickboxing, Muay Thai, Boxing, Wrestling, Kids MMA, Women’s Fitness, and Self-Defense. Our training methods have deep roots in the Martial arts world.

Our lineage can be traced back to the legendary Carlson Gracie, where his vision, open-mind, and trademark aggressive attacking style have greatly influenced us.

We bring all of this knowledge to our students where we instruct and train beginners, advanced, kids and adults all with the same desire to help you achieve your goals.
