History of Fight Club
Fight Club Ltd is a registered limited Company in Hong Kong . Founded by Henry in Year 2003, originally it was not intended to have any open classes, but a private dojo for Henry to invite his fight friends to train together. The Club was situated on the top floor of commercial highrise in Wanchai where Henry's engineering consultancy firm was operating next door. Many nights after work, Henry would spend hours next door to hit the bags, skip the rope and shadow box to work off the hectic stresses accumulated from daily business.
After a while, some friends of Henry thought it would be a waste not to let people know there is such an ideal training place for white collar. With the help of newspaper media, Henry took in some fresh members and start teaching regular classes. In the beginning, there were only kickboxing classes available held by Henry himself.
Later on, Henry met Judo Instructor Sansei Donald Cheung and BJJ Instructor Thomas Fan (Head of Hong Kong BJJ Association at the time), they both have solid experience in grappling art. Sansei Donald helped Henry for two months to establish the Jujitsu classes in Fight Club, and that was how Hong Kong Full-Contact Jujitsu Club was formed. Shortly after, Henry decided to contact Gracie Barra in Rio de Janeiro , Brazil for proper guidance in teaching BJJ. The affiliation process took about 6 months to complete, with instructional materials being directed from Gracie Barra. At this point, Henry felt that his private dojo next to his office was no longer suitable for such grappling sport. Hence, Fight Club was moved to a bigger space where it is now. The club is now better known as Gracie Barra Hong Kong.
