Operated out of Brendale, Queensland, BASE Training Centre held its grand opening in April 2019. Owned and operated by Damien Brown, UFC veteran and current RIZIN fighter, BASE offers an opportunity for upcoming fighters to be taught by one of Australia’s most experienced fighters.
Base was launched to create a community of martial artists & fitness enthusiasts that at all times seek to better themselves and those around them, in an environment where each individual feels that their presence is free of judgment and enhances the team/community. Our intent is to improve individual physical, emotional, psychological and spiritual abilities in order to improve our overall collective experiences in life, therefore creating a desire for consistency in our training, and all underpinned by loyalty to each other through decency and respect.
This is subject to what coach you have for each class! However a general layout will be 10 minutes of warmup, 30 minutes of technique and 20 minutes of live sparring!
We cater all of our classes to every skill & fitness level. From beginners to advanced practitioners, everybody trains together and gets progresses as a team. Our classes incorporate rest rounds and technique drilling as well as live sparring to ensure people have enough chance to catch their breath. If you’re not comfortable with live sparring you don’t have to participate! Simply let the coach know and we will accomodate more drills for you.
Our coaches strive to ensure 100% safety on the mats. However, being a contact sport there is bound to be some bumps and bruises along the way. Let your coach know what injury you have and we will help you every step of the way.
MMA/Striking: You will need MMA & 16oz boxing gloves as well as shin guards (you receive these when you sign up!)
BJJ GI: You will need to bring a BJJ Gi.
Every Class: Please wear a tight fitting shirt (or rashguard) & shorts with no pockets or zips and bring a water bottle and towel!
