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 Riverwood, we are located north-west of Mortdale, at Unit 17/12-14 Norman St, Peakhurst – a light industrial complex.
"I've trained with a few martial arts instructors before and i have to say Mario is one of the best i've trained with. He clearly knows what he's talking about and has a great teaching style that is both serious and light hearted at the same time, which was exactly what i was looking for in a club. In the adult classes they aren't too strict with the traditional rules (which is a nice change) and focus more on effective techniques. Ann-Marie and the rest of the black belts also help to make sure each individual is getting as much attention as possible in each class, which really helps to accelerate your learning.I did both karate and kickboxing and recommend both - karate for the the focus on technique/self defence and kickboxing for smashing pads and fitness. Also, both my kids also love training at ICC - it's really helping with their confidence.David and the entire ICC team also do a great job of managing the club. It's been an overwhelmingly positive experience from day 1."
"I have been going to the bbj classes at ICC for almost a year. I think it was the best decision I made to join ICC. The instructors Prof. David Tong and Steven Tong are awesome with their teaching and catering for people with different abilities and for both self defence and competition. I highly recommend ICC for all sorts of reasons either for fitness reasons like myself or wanting to advance in competitions as they have produced champions."
"Great people. Family atmosphere. My first 6 months have been a great experience. Professors David and Steven have taught me alot. Looking forward to my future training."
"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."
"Friendly staffs and great atmosphere! Always feel welcome from ICC family! Starting my third month for my BJJ training now.Will continue progressing with my helpful instructors David & Steve! Looking forward to growing with ICC"
