Hi Guys,

Looking at starting BJJ as quickly as possible and I am in the process of trialing different clubs.
I live out in the Sth West burbs in the Point Cook vicinity and was wondering how far people travel to get to their bjj gym.

Cheers

in Melbourne, but it is a general question just asking how far people drive to train regularly.

General travel time for most students is anywhere from 5 min to 45 min. At the extreme I have students that travel anywhere up to 3 hours (each way) to get to training with us.

It's not the travel that bothers me.... it's the parking. Every place I've trained has has shit house parking available.
