About Us

Hasan, the head of Grappling-Lab BJJ in Howick holds a Black belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. He started his grappling journey back in 2001 in ADCC (Abu Dhabi Combat Club). He started freestyle wrestling training under Alexander Savko (Sasha, the bulldozer), also with Peter Baltaliyski and Lubomir Guedjev. A year later, he joined also the next training mat in the ADCC, that when his BJJ journey started. He had a great opportunity to train under old school Brazilian masters who used to handle the ADCC team throughout the years. Hasan received his BJJ training in ADCC under masters Carlos Santos, Suyan Queiroz, Olavo Abreu, Sid Jacinto, Marcelo Motta, Ricardo Fraenkel, Alex Paz, Mohd Jehad, Rafael Haubert, and many more masters & training brothers. Moving to New Zealand with his family end of 2013, he continues BJJ training in a couple of BJJ schools in Auckland, he joined DSteam and then moved to SorrisoBJJ. In 2014, Hasan was invited from his masters in ADCC to come and receive his Black Belt, invitation meant a lot for him but traveling wasn’t an option at that time, he kept training until he received his BJJ Black Belt from master Paulo Sorriso.

At Grappling-Lab you will learn pure BJJ instruction. You and your family members are welcome to join us.
