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!

BJJ FOR LIFE: You can never outgrow the sport

BJJ FOR LIFE: Photo of Professor Friedman’s master, ATT founder Ricardo Liborio (b 1967), defeating superstar Mario Sperry (b. 1966) in 2015.

BJJ is a complete body-mind-spirit sport, but it’s not always an easy path to follow. So while the people attracted to the sport may come from different walks of life, they share hardcore traits like grit, self-motivation, fortitude and strong work ethic. BJJ practitioners seek a challenge, and are willing to push their personal boundaries, putting in the mental and physical work. BJJ practitioners share their positive energy with training partners, so a great comradery develops. So that anytime we walk onto the mat, we are in good company.

The true beauty of BJJ is that it reinforces these values and makes them stronger in participants.
In children, these values can start as a small seed planted by their families and really bloom as they grow in the sport. When parents ask if young children can train in BJJ,  we tell them that BJJ is for Life.

We can give parents a LONG list of benefits the sport provides to children from weight control, to decreased stress, increased confidence, and even a better brain (read my professor Malachy’s post about building neural connections). Today, let’s focus specifically on BJJ for Life

# 1 – Self-defense. Never underestimate the importance of a child knowing how to defend himself/herself. If he/she never has to use the techniques learned in class in a real-life situation, fantastic. The good news is that fighting in school in trending down. The bad news is that 1 in 4 high school students report being in a physical altercation. Training will prepare a child to protect himself.
# 2 – No bench warmers in BJJ. No child will ride the pine. (Yes, we’ve played baseball.) He/she will not lose their place on the roster to the kid who grew 5 inches over the summer. Everyone plays so everyone improves. Big and small, girls and boys. Everyone gets fitter, smarter and more confident.
# 3 – The Endless Season. There is no off-season when there is nothing to do. BJJ can be practiced throughout the year and for as many years as they choose. You can never outgrow the sport.
#4 – Have Gi will travel. BJJ has become a global phenomenon. Professor Malachy has trained and coached on the West Coast, Florida, Mexico and Brazil, with people from all over the world and BJJ is our universal language. So wherever your child lands in life, we are confident they can find a place to train and good people to train with. We hope as many doors open for them as they have for us with BJJ.

Oss.
