    Good dojos in Sydney/Wollongong area (Australia)

    Does anybody know any good places I can learn martial arts/MMA in the Sydney/Wollongong area? Which places are good to learn from? Which places should I avoid? There's a shaolin place nearby where I live called 'Shaolin Warrior', but I'm skeptical whether it's a Mcdojo or not.

    Google mma sydney. Go to the websites of those schools. Look who the instructors are (they generally have info on their experience/qualifications).

    Then look at session times and costs that suit you.

    You can also google the instructors name to see what pops up. Be weary on places that have belt systems for mma.

    Seems like a decent place but it's almost 100km away...

    Asks for Sydney/Wollongong gyms then complains a suggestion is too far away? They're two different cities ffs

    Alright, you're going to have to get more granular. WHERE in Sydney is relatively convenient?

    Around the Wollongong area or around Campbelltown or Cronulla is the most convenient. I put down Sydney/Wollongong because Wollongong is labelled as a part of Sydney in most scenarios, and turns out Sydney's a bit further away than I originally thought

    Yeah, Sydney is a fair distance, for sure. Like, a minimum hour and a half drive if you're speeding and have no traffic.

    Anyway:

    Gracie Jiu Jitsu - Smeaton Grange.
    Gracie Barra - Campbelltown
    UFC Gym - Gregory Hills
    https://xxxfightacademy.sydney/class/mixed-martial-arts
    etc

    This was a Google Search Map result.

    I would recommend searching on Google for the most convenient for you, then going to say, 3. Out of those three see which one you feel most comfortable at. Most of these places have a free lesson, or sometimes a free week or fortnight.
