Here’s what our customer’s are saying!

My daughter does kids BJJ (3-5yr olds). The class balances fun (keeping kids engaged) and proper coaching of BJJ techniques and drills. Depending on class size there are always 2-3 coaches or professors there to make sure the kids are getting adequate attention. Would highly recommend for any parent considering having their child start BJJ.

I trained with Rodrigo, Nosh, Joy, Davide and the professors at Espada for over 7 years. My 3 year old daughter has also attended the tots class. World class instruction, technique and fun for all ages. Made life long friends here on and off the mat. Facility is nice and everyone makes you feel right at home.

Espada is a fantastic gym for both beginners and experienced practitioners and also has a fantastic kids program. I moved from the UK to Hong Kong as a purple belt and it is incredible how friendly everyone is. Every person I met on the mat came up and introduced themselves with a smile. All of Rodrigo's coaches are high level and all of them care very much about developing you as an individual on and off the mats by improving your skills and fitness so you can be as good as possible. I will also add that THE BEGINNERS BJJ PROGRAM IS THE BEST I HAVE SEEN IN ANY GYM. The friendly, supportive atmosphere for all ages and great class structure means you learn concepts quickly and minimize any risk of injury and my wife is enjoying this very much.

It's an awesome BJJ gym that I always visit when I'm in Dubai. - The mats are spacious and of good quality - The level is good - The coaches and students are very welcoming and friendly. - The techniques taught are relevant, usable, and smart. - And the best of all is the atmosphere of a healthy mixture between joking around and having fun with your coaches and training partners to being serious, disciplined, and developing your jiu-jitsu skills. If you are interested in starting your jiu-jitsu journey or you are more experienced, I highly recommend Espada. Take the free trial and see for yourself.

Great coaches who are patient, with attention to detail. Peers in the classes equally as important driving you and motivating you. No egos, the embodiment of the respect and courtesy is well ingrained here.

Patrick Ng

Fun and engaging fundamental classes for white belts like me. Coaches are knowledgeable and generous. Students are eager to learn and help each other. BJJ is suitable for people of all ages, genders and abilities. If you have yet to start your journey, Espada is a good place for that.

The best BJJ in HK. My kids enjoy it so much and inspired me to try it. What a great workout, not just physically but for the mind too. Espada treat you like family and make all levels feel welcome. Great classes, amazing profs, big space to roll. Anything you want or need Espada can help.

Espada is brilliant. Nosh in particular is an absolutely outstanding coach, he was extremely helpful in welcoming me into Espada and introducing me to the community. He is an extremely professional and attentive coach, I have gone from 1 session with him per week to 3 per week due to his outstanding coaching and his ability to keep sessions technical and fun. I’ve already recommended Espada to several of my friends, what an amazing gym!

James Campion

Espada is the best gym to train Brazilian jiu-jitsu in HK. The school has the largest number of experienced black belt instructors under one roof in HK. Conveniently located in Sheung Wan. There's towel service and shower facilities are spacious and clean. It's also rare to train in a school with such a large mat space in the Central / Sheung Wan area. There's a competitive spirit when training here, while maintaining a very friendly and welcoming atmosphere.

Jimmy Shun

Great Gym. After trying a few other places in HK, Espada definitely stands out from the rest. I can't speak highly enough about the Professors, who are very welcoming and genuinely care about your improvement and health.

Robbie Gallagher

Really enjoy to train with Espada (db branch), very friendly and knowledgeable coaches from Brazil, nice and clean environment, many training slots are available. Great community and spirit, highly recommended. Oss!

Jonathan Vallade

Very technical training with Brazilian instructions, being a Brazilian myself I’m very demanding regarding the quality of training, but I must say the level of instruction is very high, I def recommend if you’re looking to improve and push your jiu jitsu harder.

Stephanie Ferreira

I dropped in for a class when I was in Hong Kong and looking for a BJJ gym. Everyone was very welcoming and I had a great time. The facilities are very nice and I was able to shower there after class. If I ever get back to HK I will be back!

Red Abbott

Best gym and Great coaches ( Professors Rodrigo and Nosh) the learning experience and the students in the gym makes it even better to enjoy practicing at this place 😀💪🏼 100% recommended! …

Felix Benavides

The #1 place in Hong Kong to learn BJJ. It has the best trainers and the gym has a great community. Come join!!!

Hugo Sterkenburgh

Def the best bjj gym in hk! Professors are one of the best in jiu jitsu, and they ensure you put in work. They also make the students feel part of a family (which is quite rare for bjj/MMA gyms in hk). If bjj/MMA training is in your agenda then try Espada out!!
