Academy of Combat BJJ Instructors
Led by Dr Geoff Aitken, 3rd degree BJJ Black Belt, the Academy of Combat is the biggest and most experienced BJJ school in Christchurch, NZ. The Academy offers a unique, radical and innovative approach to teaching Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and MMA known as the Open Training Format. This has proved very popular with our students as it focuses on their learning needs as individuals. We feel this is important as everyone should develop their own fighting style as not all techniques suit every body type or game plan.
