Top Team Jiu-Jitsu
Training Sessions are at different times
I trained M/W/F 7:00-9:00 P.M.
Located on Geological Street
(It’s the first alley on Baatik Baatura after you pass Vefa walking from the School)
When I first arrived in Bishkek I decided that I’d like to continue my martial arts training. I had done a few different forms before, but I had always been interested in Jiu-Jitsu. Luckily, I found a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Dojo not far from the London School. I contacted the coach and asked him if I could start training even though I’m not fluent in Russian and had little jiu-jitsu practice previously. He said “of course!” He told me where I could buy my uniform, and told me to come to practice the following day. I’ve been training at Top Team three days a week for three months now, and it is an incredible experience. The main trainers speak a little English, although in general I converse with them and the rest of the dojo in either Russian or Kyrgyz. Everyone is very friendly, helpful, and supportive. It’s a great way to practice Russian, but also to train in martial arts while making great friends. Some of my closest friends in Bishkek are from this Dojo now and my Jiu-Jitsu ability has improved immensely this semester. It costs roughly $12 a month to train and lift after practice. I will definitely continue training next semester and I recommend the dojo to anyone who studies in Bishkek.
