For more than two years now, Manly Brazillian Jiu Jitsu in Manly has been offering classes and working with local community members in the Manly Fight Gym. I had a chance to take a moment with Alex, who runs the club and discuss the classes they offer, their role in the community, and what he enjoys getting out of the time he spends with students, both young and old.
As I started developing Etch TV and the videos that we have on our YouTube Channel, some mates of mine repeatedly told me I should visit the Manly Fight Gym and get to know Alex and his team and their club. I don’t personally train this way and had always assumed everyone who did was large and burly the kind of people you might see in a film, but that’s definitely not the case.
Alex and his club are all about showing the life-values that Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu offers to both adults and children through their classes. He’s open to anyone available in the area, whether it’s a child who wants to get out and be active or learn how to protect himself from bullies, or an adult who wants to be more active and improve their lifestyle and general health, Alex’s classes are a great fit.
Offering these classes for nearly three years now and in the iconic Manly Fight Gym, which has been at its current location for more than 20 years, Alex and his team offer something truly unique and exciting for anyone in the area – it’s a great opportunity to get healthy and learn something valuable. The club at the gym is available Monday-Saturday at varying times. See their website or Facebook page for hours or to contact them directly.
