The ICC was formed in 2013 by two Tong brothers – David and Steven, who with their extensive knowledge and international competiton experience decided to share their passion for the arts by opening up their own full time martial arts facility. The aim of the gym is to provide an environment where people from all shapes and walks of life can come in and feel empowered, helping them go beyond their potential.
At ICC we have two levels for all your martial arts and fitness requirements. Our professional and experienced instructors teach Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ), mixed martial arts (MMA), kick boxing, karate and kids martial arts for women, men, children and teenagers at all experience floors.
At the ICC our Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is part of the Roots Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu family founded by Prof Paulo Guimaraes. Our lineage stems from the legendary Rickson Gracie, known as the lion of the Gracie Clan who still remains today as the only person who is undefeated in both MMA and BJJ fights.
Our extensive network of Roots gyms around Sydney and Australia allows our members to train at our other affiliated academies once you become a member.
Just a short drive from Oatley, we are located north-west of Mortdale, at Unit 17/12-14 Norman St, Peakhurst – a light industrial complex.
"2018 has been my 3rd year training at ICC. It is by far the best, most welcoming gym in Australia and has a great family atmosphere that makes me look forward to training every single time. I have trained at ICC since I was 15 years old and I’ve made so many great friendships through the gym. All instructors at ICC have a profound understanding of their respected martial arts disciplines and this has been reflected in the success of the competitors on a local and international level. ICC is the gym to train at, no matter what your goal is."
"Really helpful and friendly marital arts centre. Hi guys I'm a taxi driver and have had instances where I've been THREATENED I was after a place where I can learn some helpful life skills that if in case needed will save me from bad guys. I have just recently started with training with David and Steven they are really friendly and helpful and understood my requirements to configure a self defence course for me. Im really glad that I m now part of this incredible martial arts centre everyone at the centre is really friendly and helpful I was made feel very comfortable by everyone I highly recommed joining this centre for anyone in a likely situation thanks guys"
"I’ve been training with ICC for 5 months now and I’m 9kgs lighter than before. I’m more confident with self defence, but I’ve found the biggest benefits have been the way Ju jitsu is influencing my life off the mats. I have a fairly stressful job and I’ve found from Ju jitsu my management and relationship with stress has changed. Just like during a wrestle when needing to relax and think of a counter move, I’ve found that I’m becoming more comfortable with being uncomfortable, I’ve learnt and am continuing to learn to relax under stress, to keep calm and think strategically. Overall I think it’s making me stronger on and off the mats!!! My only regret is not starting earlier."
"I have been training at this gym for a year and a half. The skills I have learned have helped me to feel more confident and safe when I am work. The instructors are really friendly and encouraging, even if your uncoordinated."
"Dave is a skilled, and super friendly instructor. He runs an awesome program at ICC. You'll be safe, and happy to train here. Highly recommended!"
