The Jiu-Jitsu Lab!

    The Jiu-Jitsu Lab

My teammate Young-ahm just opened a new gym here in Busan located near Pusan National University.  It is called the Jiu-Jitsu Laboratory.

Young-ahm is a black belt and an ex-professional MMA fighter, and he just won the ADCC trials in the Philippines last year.  I actually wrote a blog post about him back in November:

The new gym is really beautiful.  Young-ahm told me that he wanted to create the atmosphere of a relaxing coffee shop in his gym, so he used lots of natural wood and soft lights.  Not only is the gym beautiful, Young-ahm is a very successful tournament player and an awesome teacher to boot.  He is very, very technical and knowledgable, and it is a real pleasure whenever I get the chance to learn from him.

Class Schedule

Younh-ahm has cross fit classes along with regular gi and no gi BJJ classes offered throughout the week all day (morning-night) Monday-Saturday.

There are showers and separate facilities for male and female students.

The Jiu-Jitsu Lab is located near PNU.  From Busan subway:  Take the red line to PNU.  Go out exit 3# and walk straight.  When you get to the main road take a right (there will be a Starbuck's on the corner) and walk straight.  The Jiu-Jitsu Lab is located directly in front and across the street from Tous Les Jours.  It is located on the fifth floor in the same building as ABC Mart and Love in Busan Guest House.


  1. Post up the schedule so we can know when and what the classes are without having to go by and check?
