Arte Suave's fantastic gym for anyone into Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, from newcomers to the advanced. The coaching is great, and I really liked the mixture of new and old teaching styles. Emanuela's kindness and welcoming attitude made me feel at home right away, creating a positive and inclusive atmosphere. The space is also well-maintained, and the sense of community is very strong. I'd highly recommend it if you're looking to train in Brisbane!

Arte Suave is a truly an amazing Brazilian Jiu jitsu gym for everyone from the average person looking to learn BJJ, to the competitor looking to receive high level coaching in a good gym culture.The best aspect about this is first and foremost the culture and ethics of the gym, unlike a lot of other BJJ gyms there isn't any lock in contracts, hidden (or hidden increasing) fees, pressure to buy gym specific gear, or other dodgy behavior. The culture is positive and supportive of everyone's individual goals whether that's competing or not.I have had a few personal instances where the gym owner has acted with integrity and proactively identified and addressed problems affecting my billing or other smaller issues.I would strongly recommend this gym to anyone looking for a BJJ gym whether you're new or coming from an experienced background.

I’ve been training at Arte Suave for a little over a year now and can honestly say it’s amazing. The standard of teaching is incredible, with 3 high level black belts, supported by multiple competition coloured belts and visiting coaches. I learn something new every day and enjoy the mental and physical workout I get from each class. For me though, the culture is the main draw. Emanuela has done a fantastic job of building a welcoming and inclusive community, full of people from all walks of life, coming together to share their love of jiu jitsu. I can’t recommend this place enough.

The best BJJ academy I've ever attended. A gym where you can learn technique in good vibes. As a beginner, I've found it a lot easier for me to follow as there are patient coaches who guide me thru, also, good training partners
