It’s my last night in Hong Kong and my second gym for the day!
I am sorry for late reply. I have come back to HK this morning from Asian Open in Tokyo.Of course, we welcome you to Hong Kong Jiu-Jitsu.
Time schedule is on my website.
Please choose from them.
The atmosphere here is a very different experience to my earlier gym drop-in to Epic MMA in Central Hong Kong. This isn’t a business district in a central city with shiny buildings, clean plazas, and the mingling crowds. This is real, gritty Hong Kong by night! I love it :-)
Up the stairs to the second floor, and the familiar sound of echos in matspace and the odd breakfall sounds of someone landing on the floor. I arrive to a small reception area, with the rest of the room dedicated for BJJ – mats lining the walls and floors with the steamed up windows opened to let some of the cooler night air into the room. A proper local BJJ club :-)
Before getting changed, I am introduced to Makoto and we have a quick chat about the gym, travelling, and the recent BJJ tournaments happening in Asia. Makoto moved over to Hong Kong in 2008 and set up HKJJ a year later. After a set of warm ups we go through the drills for the day. Arm bar setups from side control with a set of variations. I’m lucky enough to be paired up with Brad Ku as my training partner; A BJJ Brown Belt and instructor at HKJJ – I was in good hands :-)
After a set of guard drills (person out picks the position) we finished up with some rounds of rolling. I felt really good for my second session of the day considering it had been well over a week since my last session. Towards the end of the class I even got the nod from Makoto for a round….fun and humbling! :-)
Great way to spend my last night in Hong Kong before the trip to China. Cheers for having me down guys :-)
