Parrumpa is the head BJJ coach for American Top Team’s pro fight team and a trainer of countless world BJJ champions, UFC fighters and more. Parrumpa has designed an excellent beginners course just for our club – perfect for absolute newbies and allows you to cover all the basics in a rotating 8 week course.

It will be a pleasure to have you on the mats with us.
