Heres what our members are saying about us….
The team are so supportive and motivating, I would 100% recommend for people that haven’t trained this style before. Everyone has been very welcoming to me as a beginner
Awesome gym. Great coaches and team atmosphere. Started out 180kgs with all sorts of health issues looking for a way out of the slump. Clinch was a good place to challenge myself fitness wise/ mental wise while learning martial arts. As challenging as each day is , it gets better and better as you go. After 30kgs down and to 150kgs and brighter outlook and determination built during time at ClINCH Sadly departing the gym due to family relocation. So if you’re looking for a challenge , new start, something new, martial arts give CLINCH A GO.
Great place to start or continue your journey with BJJ. Friendly atmosphere and amazing people.
My Son is LOVING it here at Clinch. Great coaches, great atmosphere. Highly recommend all kids to give this a go.
Visited here on a work trip and was warmly welcomed by the team. Great technical training and friendly atmosphere!
Did a drop-in for the Sun kickboxing class and really enjoyed it. The Coach was great at breaking down the skills, and correcting technique. The members were very humble and down to earth. The facility is super clean and they have all gear there in shop for newbies. If you’re passing through on way to airport , cannot recommend this place enough for a drop-in. If you live in surrounding areas (You’re lucky )This is the place to join if you are looking for Kickboxing, BJJ, Self Defence or just plain fitness. Big Thank you to the Coach and I will definitely be dropping in again.
If you’re thinking of signing up with Clinch, DO IT! You won’t regret it! The trainers are awesome and attentive and the environment is really comfortable. Great for all skill levels and everyone is very friendly!
B E S T and most comfortable mma gym I’ve been to! The coaches and training environment is 10/10, you won’t regret signing up!
I have just trained at clinch for 2 weeks and it’s been awesome, the staff are down to earth and easy to talk to, the environment is very welcoming and beginner friendly I felt like there was no judgement and everyone there from the staff to the training partners are very supportive and just want to see you get the best out of your time

Dropped in while staying near Auckland airport. Both the fundamental and advanced BJJ classes had great content and pacing. Very welcoming and had some great rolls – highly recommend!
Visited here as a travelling couple and must say it’s a great spot for training.
Solid fundamental and advanced classes and the instructors and students were super welcoming and friendly, if your in the area and looking for a gym, definitely check them out
Awesome friendly place. Enjoy it alot! Great stress reliever. I already find myself improving from the great teachers there.
Highly recommend Clinch for both BJJ and kickboxing. Very good at introducing beginners into martial arts with being both extremely friendly and patient. Very fun way to keep fit and learn some self defence.
Awesome training vibes friendly staff
Great place, friendly and easy going with a very professional approach to everything
The classes are actually amazing, everyone there are very friendly, inviting and motivational. I feel like its a safe space to make mistakes in because everyone there is willing to support you and help you get the techniques correct. Its only my first week and i love it.
Hey thanks again. That was a brilliant start to things. Massive respectful group of people. Real positive environment. Super easy to use technology. The workouts were on point and totally relevant to the sessions. Very happy. Dead excited for Wednesday and more to come. Cheers.
Highly recommend Clinch for both BJJ and Kickboxing. I’ve just completed the introductory course and thoroughly enjoyed each workout.
Everyone is very welcoming, easy-going and supportive, creating a friendly, motivating gym environment.
The coaches are attentive and teach moves step by step and then tie sequences and drills together in an interesting, safe and fun way.
Thanks Karl, Rangi and the Clinch Team!
I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS PLACE! Would recommend to anyone that’s looking to shed a few pounds or even get into a new Hobby! The people here are so friendly , Super supportive and honestly so genuine. I hope to come back to such a wonderful environment! 10+ Stars if I could!

“Great experience training and welcoming team to help you out. Would recommend to anyone looking at getting a great introduction into BJJ.”
“It’s a great experience…I alway look forward to walking through the doors and always feel amazing when I leave, it’s about being in a group of friendly team and awesome coaches. Cleanliness has always being the best. It’s a life changing experience and I recommend it highly to those who wanting to reach they goals and for fitness or passionate to learn martial arts and kick boxing. Karl – He knows how to push you to the limit in the best way possible with your workouts. Your leadership and sportsmanship are top-notch.”
“I have completed the 4 week introductory program to BJJ and I’m very happy with the outcome! I have in the past fought Muay Thai so I wasn’t sure what to expect when jointing this program, but I loved it! it is well through trough and Karl is an amazing coach. He keeps the training fun and relevant to realistic scenarios. There is a great family vibe at Clinch as an organisation. Highly recommend them!”
“I will Recommend this class to anyone who wants to upskill and stay fit. u will not regret the choice. cheers Karl. thx again for the fundamentals class it really help me and show me there more than going to gym.”
“This is a perfect class to learn Brazilian Jiu Jutsu awsome crowd and also awsome Coach very simple and affective”
“Clinch is a great gym for beginners – the fundamentals BJJ classes are broken down into easy to follow steps and by the end, you have a full takedown and submission. The team are awesome, both welcoming & knowledgeable.”
“I recently signed up for the BJJ fundamentals course. Outstanding. From warm up to individual movements and then to paired partner work was fun and progressive. Everything taught, linked to
“Great classes for beginners that are practical and application based. – Having the warm ups broken down into move by move play, then using them in one full movement is a good way to learn how it’s used. – great way to learn self defence and have fun at the same time”
“Absolutely loving the classes. Really like the way you incorporate specifics used in warm ups for single drills, then fold it into a full range of movements at the end of the session so they all flow together. I think your explanation is very clear and you make it a positive learning environment ( which is obvious by the way everyone is getting stuck in!) I am loving learning the technical aspect of the art and can’t wait to learn more.”
“Really enjoying the beginner lessons. The classes are well paced and easily digestible, serving as a good workout too. Would highly recommend it if you want to try out bjj and see if it’s for you.”
“Great skills learnt and amazing people. It has become my 2nd home”
Karl is great at coaching, articulation of required components to each movement and technically very knowledgeable. It’s an honour to be his student
“Been training here for 2 years. This place has become a second home and everyone training with me is like family”
“Clinch is a home away and a family away from family I have no regrets about being a proud member for over five years I love this club”
