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 Roselands, we are located north-west of Mortdale, at Unit 17/12-14 Norman St, Peakhurst – a light industrial complex.
"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!"
"Our oldest son Patrick has been training BJJ under Mario for 2 years and our middle boy Jack has just started Karate Jitsu. I cannot speak highly enough of him, the difference he has made in their lives is enormous. I'd recommend him to anyone looking to get their kids into martial arts."
"The instructors at ICC are competent, friendly and professional but that’s not entirely why I chose to join and bring my 3 kids (2 girls and a boy) along. There are plenty of martial arts gyms with disciplined instructors but very few with the right culture and family oriented approach that make it easy for a parent to entrust their children with ICC in teaching them such an important life skill. For an old man like me and for any anyone else for that matter, the senior students have gone out of their way to pass on their skills without any condescending ego, it’s part of their journey to learn and to give back. I feel like the ICC philosophy rings true in that everyone is welcomed at ICC irrespective of their background and/or athletic ability. One final stand out for me is the large membership of girls and women in the club. As a father of 2 teenager daughters and a Girls Development Officer at a local football club it's very important for me to see the right culture is established to encourage female participation. Highly recommended."
"A place that is welcoming and warm. My child loved it from day 1. Professional warm instructor's. Thank you for your kindness and professionalism."
"My son has recently started karate at ICC and I found the instructors to be great with the kids and passionate in their teachings of the various martial arts style. It's great seeing such young kids do the actions and listen to the instructors so well."
