Myalo is a brilliant gym. The coaches and students are extremely welcoming and encouraging. I had zero experience in any combat sport prior to joining a few months ago but my confidence and fitness has developed greatly. Very thankful for the coaches and teammates

I'm into my third month at Team Ryano now and I just can't say enough good things about the place. The friendly atmosphere, the work ethic, the skill level... all these things combine to make it the real deal. Whether you're aiming to step into the octagon or just into your favourite jeans that don't fit anymore, this is the place to be.

BJJ stands for “Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.” It’s a martial art and combat sport that focuses on grappling, particularly ground fighting. Here’s a brief overview:

  1. Origins: Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu’s roots can be traced back to Judo, which was introduced to Brazil by Mitsuyo Maeda, a Japanese judoka. The Gracie family of Brazil, notably Carlos and Helio Gracie, are credited with refining and popularizing the art by emphasizing ground combat and developing techniques that allowed a smaller, weaker person to defeat larger and stronger opponents.
  2. Techniques: BJJ promotes the idea that a smaller, weaker person can successfully defend against and subdue a bigger, stronger assailant using leverage and proper technique, primarily by applying joint locks and chokeholds.
  3. Gi and No-Gi: BJJ can be trained in two main formats: “Gi” and “No-Gi”. “Gi” refers to training with the traditional kimono, while “No-Gi” refers to training without it, usually in shorts and a rash guard. The presence or absence of the gi affects the available techniques and grips.
  4. Sport Aspect: BJJ tournaments are held worldwide and are split into various weight classes and skill levels. Matches can be won by points (gained by achieving dominant positions or performing certain maneuvers) or by submission (making the opponent tap out).
  5. Self-defense: While it’s a popular sport, BJJ is also lauded for its effectiveness in real-life self-defense situations, especially when the altercation goes to the ground.
  6. Ranking: Similar to other martial arts, BJJ has a belt ranking system. Adult practitioners typically progress from white to blue, purple, brown, and finally black. There are also degrees on black belts, and a few practitioners achieve further belts like coral (black and red) and red.
  7. Philosophy: Beyond the physical aspect, BJJ is often seen as a way of life by many practitioners. It promotes principles like respect, discipline, patience, and continuous learning.

Today, BJJ is practiced by individuals around the world, both as a sport and a method of self-defense, and it’s frequently incorporated into the training regimens of mixed martial arts (MMA) fighters.
