    Ground Control Academy Community

    At our Jiu Jitsu gym, community involvement is at the heart of our mission. We take pride in sponsoring various community programs that promote health, fitness, and personal development. One of our core values is actively participating in community events like the ARAS picnic and parade, fostering a sense of togetherness and unity. Moreover, we cherish the moments of celebration, organizing multiple team parties throughout the year to strengthen the bonds among our members.

    But it doesn’t stop there – we are committed to giving back to our community by providing free memberships to families in need, ensuring that everyone has the opportunity to experience the transformative benefits of Jiu Jitsu, and sponsoring community events like the ARAS farmers market, The Great Rural Race, and other local clubs. Through these endeavors, we strive to be a positive force within our community and make a lasting impact in Ardrossan.

    • Our whole family trains at GCA. Two little ninjas and two adults. The classes are great and Coach Deven is great with the kids. An excellent team environment for everyone.

      The adults Jiu Jitsu and Kickboxing/Muay Thai is awesome! Great workout, good people and suitable for all levels.

    • This has been a phenomenal school to learn jiu jitsu from. Deven is incredibly thorough and detailed in teaching the techniques and has the patience to work through them with you as slow as necessary. The atmosphere and comradery in the gym will make anyone have a great time and look forward to their next class. Can’t recommend enough.

    • My youngest son had anxiety and was so scared when he first started learning Jiu-jitsu. He couldn’t even step on the mat. Deven was so patient and the whole Ground Control community was so welcoming and supportive. In less than 5 months, my son has done a complete 180. He is so much more confident and even competed in his first competition and received third place in his division! Deven’s coaching has been incredible that even my other son has join Ground Control, who also was scared and nervous to try Jiu-jitsu.

      This community has been life changing for my family and we all owe it to Ground Control Academy!
