SMMA provides very high quantity training with a friendly vibe. The coaches and training partners invest a lot of time to help you achieve your goals. I can't rate SMMA highly enough.

Great environment and awesome coaching. Everyone works as a team to better not only their own skills, but those of all their team mates as well.

Garry Ellingham

Train with the best! There's a reason people come out here all the way from Brisbane and from around the world for that matter.

A good Jiu Jitsu school for me is all about the Coaches, great Coaches make great students, which in turn ends up making a great school! Southside MMA has fantastic Coaches. Passionate, extremely high level practitioners that put all their time, effort and knowledge into every class with fantastic results for their students and themselves. Everyone I've met at SSMMA have been friendly and welcoming (and usually a multiple medal winner at the competition side of things too). The kids who train here learn alot more than just Jiu Jitsu. Life skills, confidence, the lot. For me it's the only place to train Jiu Jitsu in Australia.
