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!

“Hey, you should train with that white belt. He’s a total spaz.”

You know the white belt spaz? Heck, you might have been that guy a
year or two ago. He’s the guy who knows very little technique, yet he
desperately wants to keep from losing on the mats. So, he is probably
not going to try to perfect today’s lesson; instead he’ll try to grab
your head and squeeze it off your body. He is the guy who explodes
into submissions, through submissions, or out of submissions.

Is he dangerous? Sure. But you still should be training with him.
Why? Well, whether you are training in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) for
sport or for self-defense, BJJ is a martial art which by definition is
used for combat or protection. When you are training with other
seasoned practitioners, you expect your opponent to move in BJJ like
flow or movement, and to answer your techniques with other BJJ
techniques. So, you anticipate the movements because you assume that
your partner will use these already tested BJJ techniques.
So what benefit can you get from training with the white belt?
Unpredictability! Since the white belt doesn’t know what he should do,
you cannot anticipate his next movement. This is what you will most
likely encounter in a street self-defense scenario. And this is where
winning and losing really matters. So, of course you should embrace
the white belt as a training partner.

Everyone has their purpose on the mats; whether it’s the blue belt
that helps the purple belt perfect his transitions, or the brown belt
who reminds the purple that there is more to be learned. The white
belt is trying to win on the mats without the arsenal of techniques
that the higher belts can access. So during a sparring session, the
white belt uses the only tools at his disposal: strength and speed.
With experience, the white belt will relax, but until then, embrace
him for who he is, and what he can do to help you better your Jiu
Jitsu, whether its sport or in this case self-defense.
