Hey guys. An English website for Tozi Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Team Korea is up and running. www.koreabjj.com
The instructor is Park Jun Young (first Korean BJJ black belt), and the gym is part of Dong Cheon Bek San. I have been doing jiu-jitsu for a couple of years now (I've trained in a couple of different countries), and can tell you that his instruction is top notch. Gi and no gi classes are available. Come check us out.
Can anyone give me directions to the muay thai gym close to megamart in daeyeon/namchung??
I just started training with Team MAD MMA a couple of weeks ago. It is an awesome gym with a very good coach. The gym is located in Dongdaesin. If you take line 1 to Dondaesin (stop 108) and take exit 1 out of the station, the gym is located in an alley about 600 meters up the road.
Also, here's the website: http://cafe.daum.net/leeba3

Hey. I live in Nampo so I was thinking I might join? I have no experience with any of this sort of thing I mainly just want something to get me in shape. Are there many foreigners there already if so which class do you guys go to and does the instructor speak English? Thanks in advance.
I train on Wednesdays and Fridays at the 9:00 p.m./10:00 p.m. class. Right now, I'm the only foreigner, because the gym just barely opened. The instructor speaks English, and there is a purple belt that works at the gym that speaks English well. If you are looking for something to get you into shape, BJJ will do the trick.
Also, BJJ is very hands on. He will go over techniques in English as well as Korean when he is teaching, but it isn't a big deal. I've been training BJJ here in Busan for four years. If you have any more questions let me know. Send me a PM, and I can meet up with you at the gym. Hope to train with you soon. Take care.
Just wanted to let everyone know that a Kyokushin Karate place just opened up in Haeundae. It's near Emart, Jung-dong station exit 5. Come out and walk straight. It's on the first floor of the same building as Paris Baguette, on your left.
I haven't visited, just walked by it a few times.

There is a new Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu gym located near Pusan National University. BJJ and cross fit classes are offered all day (morning and night) Monday-Saturday. English is spoken.
The gym is owned and operated by Noh Young-ahm who is one of only four certified Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belts here in Busan. He is a pupil under Park Jun-young (Roberto Tozi black belt) Chae In-muck, and Sung Hee-yong (black belts under Marco Barbosa).
Young -ahm just won the ADCC trials (the most prestigious no gi competition in the world) last year, and is also an ex-professional MMA fighter. He even fought UFC fighter Kim Dong-huynh in Spirit MC (a Korean fight organization). Heis also an accomplished BJJ tournament player. Young-ahm has returned after a few years of living in Seoul and teaching at Cube MMA.
BJJ LAB official website:
Here is a short interview with him and some videos:
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.
