About this Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Academy

Sassom MMA, located in East Brisbane, QLD is run by head instructor Marcus Collings, 3rd degree black belt in BJJ.

From the Sassom MMA website:

BJJ for short, is a Martial Arts system that is ideal for Self Defence, and is also a great sport.
BJJ uses leverage to control its opponents making it effective against a much larger and stronger person. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is practiced in both the traditional Gi (uniform) and NoGi (Fight Shorts (Board Short Style) & Rashie).

Beginners -  One Week No Obligation Free Trial!

Beginners are welcome to come to all the classes on the Time Table.

However, we also have Beginner Classes just for you. Beginner classes are on a Tuesday and Thursday night from 6:45 – 8:15pm. These classes have all the fundamental techniques you need to build a great foundation in BJJ.

You do not need to purchase any special equipment as these classes are NoGi, so just wear some comfortable gym type clothes. If you do choose to also tryout the Gi Classes we will lend you a Gi during your 7-day Free Trial.

When you commence training at SASSOM, you will notice very quickly, how friendly, approachable and helpful the other students are. They know where you are coming from, and they also know that the fastest way for them to improve, is to help you improve too.

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a great way to meet many interesting people and make new friends along the way.

The best thing about SASSOM is, there are NO Contracts & NO Hidden Fees

East Brisbane

East Brisbane is an inner southern suburb of the City of Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. In the 2016 census, East Brisbane had a population of 5,934 people.

East Brisbane is located 4.8 kilometres (3.0 mi) south-east of the CBD. It is mostly residential, with some small commercial areas,[5] and has many original Queenslander houses.

East Brisbane is bounded by the median of the Brisbane River to the north, Norman Park to the east, Coorparoo to the south-east, Woolloongabba to the south-west, and Kangaroo Point to the north-west. The border between Norman Park and most of Coorparoo follows Norman Creek.
