View Full Version : New to everything, does anyone have experience with Mayfield's Gracie-Barra BJJ dojo?

Hello everyone,

I'm a young woman from Newcastle, Australia whose only experience in fighting was some kiddie karate classes back when I was knee-high. I won't pretend to know anything about this stuff, because I basically don't.

That said, I've been thinking of picking Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu up, because there's a training centre near here. Here is their website, (http://www.graciebarramayfield.com/) if anyone who has experience with Newcastle practitioners could kindly give me some insight. (I ran a search, and it doesn't seem like there are any threads about Gracie Barra's Mayfield branch, even though Newcastle itself has a thread. I believe it's quite new?)

Anyway, I don't expect to actually post much, but I figured there was no harm in asking whether anyone had any experience with this particular training centre (or dojo, or whatever you'd like to call it). Thanks for your time.
