    Anybody know where you can take BJJ classes in Northern Ireland? Google doesn't turn up much info.

    I'm only aware of the two in and around Belfast:

    Gracie Barra NI
    Valley Leisure Centre
    40 Church Rd
    Newtownabbey, BT36 7LJ

    QUB Revolution Team
    Queen's University Belfast,
    Physical Education Centre,
    Botanic Gardens,
    Belfast, BT9 5EX


    I can personally recommend the latter, having trained with a bunch of guys from there: great group of people. I'm told there are also other BJJ clubs towards the border, but no specifics: would be interested in knowing exactly where, as then I could add them to the UK map.

    I think Chris Brennan might have a school in Ireland.

    The only Chris Brennan school I am aware of in Ireland is in the Loughlinstown, outside Dublin.

    There are several MMA clubs in the six counties.

    Northern Ireland is great for judo, you could look into joining one of the university clubs, queens and jordanstown are always very strong.

    good thread. A kid from my school is spending about a month there this summer. I'll have to tell him about these places so he doesn't fall behind

    The main sbg place is in Dublin. I think there is an affiliated training group, Kyoujin or something like that, in the north
