BRAZILIAN JIU JITSU
BRAZILIAN JIU JITSU
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) is a martial art based on grappling and ground fighting techniques. The aim of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is to control and subdue a larger and stronger opponent through the use of superior techniques, leverage, and body mechanics. With an emphasis on grappling rather than striking, students are able to practice with varying levels of intensity, without the threat of serious injuries which can occur more often in martial arts focused on punching and kicking.
East Heaven White Mountain Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a family of gyms that includes Barbosa Academy Korea, Tozi Korea, Ulsan Fight Gym, First Gym, Daejeon MMA, The BJJ Lab, and Team MAD (home of UFC fighter Dong-Hyun Kim). Our instructors have trained extensively in Brazil and are certified to teach Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.

JIU JITSU LAB
ABOUT THE LAB
Aidan is the Founder and Head Professor at the Jiu Jitsu Lab, located in Busan, the 2nd largest city in Korea.
Opened in January of 2013, just around the corner from Pusan National University, it has quickly become the most reputable BJJ gym in Korea, and arguably, all of Asia.
Here at the Jiu Jitsu Lab, he is the main instructor and curriculum developer of BJJ. Classes are taught by him along with only the most highly trained coaches in Korea, whom are active competitors themselves.
Aside from being run by a top BJJ athlete, much of the success of the gym can be attributed to the high regard of respect and professionalism that is expected from students, while also fostering a community of collaboration, fun, and sportsmanship. And the honor of being granted promotions is reserved only for those that earn it through hard work, dedication; and most importantly, ability and heart.
