Amazing coaches and an incredible vibe. Everyone is friendly and the children all get along so well. I cannot recommend this place enough!!!
Very comfortable and family friendly environment. I highly recommend GB Hawkesbury! This community is like no other, they have welcomed us with open arms and we are deeply grateful. GB Hawkesbury forms a brotherhood, opportunity, teaches discipline, and respect. What i love most is that Professor David and Coach Sinem leads others to be leaders. Come and train with us, bring the kids, bring the whole family!
Prof David and his team of coaches do a great job of providing a friendly and safe environment to learn Brazilian Jujitsu. Suitable for beginner to advanced, girls and boys, all ages.
