Grand opening of BJJ Athletic in Moldova

Flew to Moldova last week for the grand opening of the BJJ Athletic gym in Chisinau. I met these guys during my around-the-world trip and it is cool to see how they have really embraced the BJJ lifestyle and training methods.

They already have a strong group of some really talented grapplers with great physique and work ethic. This gym is going to be a great succes, there is no doubt about it! Look out for them at the competitions in the future :)

Wow, Moldova seems to be bjj's new hotbed - this is a second time I see bjj and Chisinau used in the same sentence over the past week!

Is this their new facility?!?!?! WOW! What a change from the dirty old gym! Great work!

While yes, BJJ Athletic's gym is a definite asthetically-pleasing upgrade from their last gym, Chisinau, although the capital of Moldova, is typically the exception to what is happening in the rest of the country.

Stay tuned to our facebook and webpage as we are looking into possible startup teams potentially in two smaller communities.
