About our team
GFA (Ground Fighting Academy) offers training in the art of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and no-gi grappling. Our team originated from the former BJJ Friesland and is led by Arnoud Terpstra. Team GFA is affiliated with Team Kaishin Almere.
Our team consists of a big group of motivated and positive people. Our club is know for it’s laid back vibe and helpful team members that all try to bring out the best in eachother. After training, we all talk and hang out with each other and we regularly organize activities together. You won’t find any ‘machismo’ in our club. We all step on the mat with a good mood and without ego!
Besides training we regularly compete in different BJJ tournaments around the country. Also, we make sure to train under our head coach Henk Heneweer from Team Kaishin as much as we can to keep the level of our team high.
