The Fit by Beat gym in Setiabudi will be going through a renovation in June. So, for about a month, the Arena MMA BJJ classes will move to a new mat area in Kemang, south Jakarta.
The new spot is at the Fit Force gym in Kemang Timur. There is also a possibility for the gym to become a permanent BJJ spot in the Kemang area.
The Fit Force is a medium scale gym and its BJJ mat area is located on the first floor with a cool illustrations of Helio Gracie, Mike Tyson and Bruce Lee on its walls.
The mat is kind of stiff compared to the one regularly used by Arena MMA. As for the size, it is kind of similar. There are also punching bags hanging right in the center of the mat area. So, be very careful when rolling. I kind of hurt my ankle when my foot accidentally hit one of the bags during a roll.
There is also a basement area, which is dedicated for HIIT, weight lifting and crossfit training. Meanwhile, the locker and changing room facilities are decent.
The gym opens from 5 a.m. to 2 a.m. As for the BJJ classes, the schedule for the month of June is on every Monday and Wednesday at 8 p.m. As far as I know, free trials are available and you can book for your trial by contacting Fit Force.
