Banaswadi Jiu Jitsu is based in Bangalore, India. It's a BJJ club for everybody who brings a good mood to the mat. Currently we have no head trainer, but we are eager to find one ;-) However, we gathered BJJ experience in Hong Kong, Japan and Germany. Our hope is that one day, a BJJ school can be created in Bangalore. Let's roll and spread the BJJ spirit in India!

Report MMA Seminar at Tiger's

Oh man that was a good seminar!
2 hrs in the morning and two ours in the evening, and that for 3 days...

In the morning we did some groundwork and in the evening some striking, kicking and mma stuff. And of course cardio and strength training. At the second day my body was gone...I felt like a 90 year old ;-)
Very structured and disciplined training.

We trained at the brand new gym in Nashik. Nice mat, heavy bags, gloves, pats, dummies, everything is there!

First time in my life I ate some light punches... I was kinda surprised, when I got hit in tha face when somebody wanted to pass my guard.;-)

The training was lead by Daniel Isaac and Alan Fernandes. Really nice training with them, I learnt a lot and had a great time on the mat! Everybody is just so relaxed...

Nashik is about 3 train hours away from Mumbai, and is a relaxed small town. Friendly people and has the bes Tali I ate so far. (Panshawati Yatri Hotel)

Looking forward to train with those guys again!
