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!

My oldest son just started his boxing journey and I am thrilled we chose ATT. Coach Isaac is amazing and everyone in the classes are super supportive. I can’t wait to see the growth in my son! If you’re looking for quality classes, you won’t be disappointed!

American Top Team Anti-Bullying Program

American Top Team Anti-Bullying Program
Bullying has been on our national radar screen as a major social problem for many years. The effects of
bullying can be dramatic and long-lasting for the bullied child and include emotional and physical pain,
academic problems, and social withdrawal. Even the aggressor experiences negative consequences,
putting themselves at higher risk of becoming involved in criminal activity in adulthood.
American Top Team is a world-renowned Martial Arts Academy with many famous athletes counted
among our ranks. At American Top Team, we take a firm stance against bullying and believe that given
the right voice behind the anti-bully movement, we can not only reduce the number of bullied children,
but also prevent those prone to bullying behavior by giving them strong, positive role models.

Types of Bullying

BJJ Charleston

  • Verbal
  • Social
  • Physical
  • Cyber

 

 

 

 

Why Bullying takes place?
-Lack of social skills
-Defense mechanism. The bully’s competence, social connection, or self-worth become exposed.
– Verbal or physical aggressiveness may take place at home.
– Bullying has reinforced social status or power.
– Home may lack healthy affection or empathy.

Goals
To teach kids the proper social skills to effectively prevent bullying.
Prevent bullying before it takes place.
Intervening safely during the act of bullying.

The AggressorCharleston, Antibullying

– May be excluded, lonely or hurting
– May be bullied at home, neighborhood or in school
– Not understand how to make friends

Myths and Realities on bullying and how to combat it

– Bullying is used to gain a sense of power or satisfaction in hurting someone
Reality: Bullies usually need an audience to accomplish these goals. Taking this away from them weakens their motives.
-Mediation is not the best remedy
Reality: There is an imbalance of power between victim and bully. Mediating often only enforces
the imbalance at times.
-Bullying toughens the victim

Reality: There are no winners in bullying. Every child is different and not every story ends in a
victory for the victim.

American Top Team’s approach

Who we are
American Top Team is the Premier Mixed Martial Arts Team in the country. With over 100 professional
fighters, we are the team with the largest roster in the UFC. American Top Team also teaches adults and
children martial arts for competition and self-defense. Yes, we are competitive fighters, but we are also
sportsmen and women who live by the seven principles of the Black Belt: self-control, discipline,
modesty, courtesy, integrity, perseverance and an indomitable spirit.
Our approach to minimize bullying in school
In our academies we are adamantly against bullying in any and every form. We teach our students it is
not ok to bully or be a bystander to bullying. Many of our instructors and competitors are well
accomplished and their pledge against bullying holds weight with the youth we instruct. Standing strong
against bullying, we explain the different roles in bullying and then roleplay scenarios so it is easier for
our students to understand how to prevent or take part in bullying.
Our Seminars
Anti-Bully staff introductions as well as getting to know the audience with simple Q&A to relax and
involve the students. A dialogue on bullying: what students think bullying is; if they or someone they know has been bullied (usually by a show of hands); if they have brothers or sisters who may have excluded or have witnessed
bullying. Usually everyone has joined in bullying at some point.
Explain the different kinds of bullying with an example of each.
Role-playing involving the staff, teachers and students.
Examples of each scenario and how to handle each.
The Pledge to Stand Against Bullying
Copies of the Anti-Bully pledge are given to children to sign, and take home to present to their parents.
