“Southside club has been our second family and the locations have been our second home.Marlee Brooking
New facility in nerang has a great vibe along with the other locations.
Friendly and skilled coaches. And a great comradeship amongst teammates.
Highly recommended ?”
“Southside Nerang is one of the best places to train on the Gold Coast if not Australia. They have friendly coaches who are also highly skilled and they will help you to achieve any goal you have through Jiu Jitsu. The classes have a great atmosphere and a good energy about them. The young kids have so much fun and learn lots of skills. The older kids put the skills to use which is scary when your 30+ and rolling with a 14 year old that can whoop you in more ways than you thought possible! I’ve attended all the Southside gyms and they are all consistent with the high level of teaching and training.”Scott Loughlin
“The Nerang gym is a fantastic place to train. Two of the nights that i train are coached by the professor himself and the other coaches are black belts or high level belts.Mmatthew Sage
