"I started training jiu jitsu because I realized how important it is to know how to defend yourself. I joined this team because I knew how driven the coach is. Immediately I felt at home. The team is like a family to me, on and off the mats. We have people that compete at the highest level, and people that just want to learn how to defend themselves. There's a place for everyone here.

Every training I go home knowing I learned something new. CheckMat BJJ Rotterdam will help you become the best version of yourself, whether you're a beginner or an advanced competitor."

"20 years ago I started doing karate and since then I've always had a weak spot for martial arts. After I did a 5 day Brazilian Jiu Jitsu training camp I fell in love with the sport. I joined the team because I trained with coach Daniel before, and I knew he is very dedicated to improving himself and his team. The team is young, enthousiastic and driven. Everybody helps each other. There is a great atmosphere, which is super important to me. Currently, I'm training twice a week. My goal is getting fit, expanding my game and having fun. Because I just really like training jiu jitsu. I would definitely recommend training with us."
