Following the recent unprecedented events regarding the rapid spread of the Corona Virus, and its imminent impact on local communities and overall health system, Southside BJJ leaders have made the difficult decision to close our schools until further notice.

The closure of all classes will be effective from Wednesday the 18th of March 2020.

The decision has been made with the best interests of our students, coaches, staff members, relatives, friends and the general community at heart.

It is important to notice that there have been no known cases at any of the Southside BJJ schools.

Whilst many of our members may not necessarily fall into the high risk infection category, it has become evident for us the need to avoid the close physical contact that Jiu Jitsu involves. This is until a long term course of action is clearly defined by the health authorities.

We will continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation closely as it develops, and will be providing regular updates going forward.

During this challenging period ahead of us, we would like to ask that everybody continues to support our schools to the best of their abilities.

We have built more than a gym here. Southside has become an integral part of our community’s physical and mental health/wellbeing. We will get through this as a family, and will no doubt be back soon on the mats, stronger than ever.
