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!

Learn Almost Any Technique and Actually OWN IT

I know a lot of techniques but actually owning a technique, that is different.  What does that mean to own a technique?  Knowing the infrastructure forward and back, understanding the timing and tiny components to what makes it work.  In most players early years of BJJ they see a technique understand the concept then implement.  Let’s take the armbar as an example…I take the arm I want swing my leg over the face pinch my legs and extend my hips…OK got it…not so fast.  Yes you have the overall picture and you may armbar white belts and people who have no idea what Jiu-Jitsu is but you are missing the tiny components that make the larger mechanism such an effective submission.  So we are going to chop it then chunk it

Ok now let’s really take apart the armbar into its smallest components

  1. Control arm
  2. Foot on the hip
  3. Pinch knee
  4. Change angle
  5. Kill posture with windshield wipe
  6. Maneuver thigh over face
  7. Pinch knees
  8. Heels down and toes up
  9. Control wrist position
  10. Elevate hips through heels

Ok so now we have the small components broken down.  Train, drill, and visualize each step.  We will learn visualization later in the book.

Now that you have done the armbar with every proper step so slow it is almost unrecognizable then we can slowly increase the speed by chunking.

Certain moves can now be put together once completely understood

  1. Control arm
  2. Foot on the hip and pinch knee
  3. Change angle and windshield wipe to kill posture
  4. Maneuver thigh over face and pinch knees
  5. Heels down/toes up and control wrist
  6. Elevate hips

Now once this is accomplished in a perfect manner from very slow to moderately fast

We can make an even larger chunk

  1. Control arm-foot on hip and pinch knee change angle and windshield wipe
  2. Maneuver thigh over  face—- pinch knees—heels down/toes up —control wrist
  3. Elevate hips

Then finally just the armbar now all the working smaller components are in place

  1. Armbar
  2. Tap – tap – tap
  3. Celebrate
