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!

Reassessing Your BJJ Inventory

Reassessing your inventory

 

– Hey guys, this is one of my first BJJ / MMA blogs I wrote before moving to Charleston, SC. I am putting it on my American Top Team Lowcountry site, to share with all of my Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, MMA, Muay Thai and Martial Arts students. – Malachy Friedman

 

We obtain many techniques throughout our years of trial and error on
the mat.  Some of these techniques become our “go to” moves that come
naturally and work well for us.  After we use a technique repeatedly,
it becomes part of our “Jiu-Jitsu inventory,” our personal supply of
moves that we are most knowledgeable about and feel most confident
applying.

Now no technique works all the time, every time, and we don’t expect
our preferred technique to be fail-proof which is why we have other
techniques that we chain together. However, we should definitely
reassess the first bjj technique we attempted, even if it is one of our
best and most reliable.  There is usually something that we can do to
enhance this technique; maybe it’s a simple matter of applying
leverage or pressure in a specific area. Or maybe your timing is
slightly off.  The point is to get comfortable with a battery of
moves, but never take them for granted. Keep reevaluating your stock
techniques, mastering the basics. You will find that even the most
advanced moves usually end in a basic technique. For example, a
helicopter armbar or an advanced sweep that ends by simply sitting up
into a controlled knee on belly position.

Keep focused on the instructors even when you become familiar with
techniques they are demonstrating. When an instructor teaches a move
that I already know or even one of my favorites, I pay close
attention.  Over the years, I have noticed that every instructor does
a technique slightly different or holds a different step of the
technique to be of greater importance to the overall move. Often
times, I have been left wondering how well I really knew the technique
in the first place, which only illustrates the brilliance and beauty
of the quest to master anything.
