Where to train brazilian jiu-jitsu in Las Palmas?
EAM del Toro is the best and the cheapest in town.
I agree with Alonso (review above). There is a BJJ group training there, but I am not sure about MMA. Rapha teaches kickboxing.
Search in Google for Tony Malone brazilian jiu jitsu. It’s in La Isleta.
A friend of mine is training with Felipe in a local in Las Canteras, near The Block Cafe. It’s called Club Felipe Marden.
