The Owners of 8292

Garreth McLellan

Garreth’s professional sporting career started at the age of 19, playing flank to Top Fight Club rugby in Durban at Crusaders Rugby Club. In 2007, The Natal Rugby Union Selected him for a program that meant the change from flank to hooker with the promise of a Natal Sharks Rugby Contract. One of the requirements was that he increased his fitness levels.

Spending time with the Sharks fitness Coach, Jason Voster, who at the same time was South Africa’s leading MMA coach who used the sport as a form of training. “It became clear to Jason that I had a natural ability and was encouraged to pursue this direction.

I agreed to an amateur fight and was hooked. I completed my amateur career undefeated with a   10 – 0 fight record.

In 2008, after turning professional, I won my first fight against JP Kruger. I then moved to Johannesburg to further my career by Joining South Africa’s top MMA Gym, Fight Fit Militia.

In 2009 I started fighting for Extreme Fighting Championships (EFC).” Soldierboy went on to become one of the biggest household names in EFC South Africa as he claimed the Middle Weight Title twice during his reign, but had his mind set on an international stage. “ Shortly after my 2nd victory, I was invited to fight in the Ultimate Fighting Championships (UFC) the most prestigious event in the MMA World.

Garreth received his black belt 6 years ago and now wants to give back to the mixed martial arts community by opening a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu gym and sharing his knowledge with people who share his passion.

Shana Power

Shana started her MMA journey 11 years ago, training under Richie Quan and Norman Wessels out of Fight Fit Militia while she was studying her fitness Diploma. She then furthered her studies and specialized in Sports Conditioning where she assisted top athletes in different sports to achieve their best.

“I have not only competed in the Crossfit regionals in 2010, I have competed in powerlifting, jiu jitsu comps and now mixed martial arts.”

Shana was the first women’s amateur Bantam Weight champion at Fightstars with a record of 4 – 0.

She has competed in the EFC, her record is currently 3 – 1.

“I have also travelled and trained with the best athletes in the world such as Holly Holm, Claudia Gadelha and Yana Kunitskaya to name a few.

I have owned a successful mixed martial arts gym, crossfit gym and made the best coffee in town, before deciding to immigrate to Bali. I trained under Andrew and Anthony Leone as well as Don for 3 years. I also upgraded my pad holding skills and was able to train with high level international athletes which made me a much better athlete and coach overall.”

Shana is currently a Purple Belt under Garreth Mclellan. “I am excited to share the mats with Garreth, coach alongside him and run a successful Jiu Jitsu School with him. I am also excited to share my knowledge and empower those who wish to learn and develop a new skill by not only focusing on the physical aspects of training but by helping athletes with the mental aspects of training and competing too.


Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a form of martial arts which involves taking someone down to the ground using a combination of Wrestling and Judo moves. Once taken to the ground you try to submit the person by joint manipulation, pressure and chokes.

Yes, absolutely. Jiu Jitsu can be taught to everyone and learnt by anyone. We highly recommend this class for ladies and children. Jiu Jitsu is a great form of self defence and assists with anti-bullying.

Yes, you may. We will separate the class from beginners – experienced. Just inform the instructor of the day your level of experience.

It is a great skill to learn as it teaches you to defend yourself. We highly recommend this for Everyone but especially kids to assist with bullying and females to protect themselves. It doesn’t matter how big or small you are, fit or strong – this martial art works for and on Everyone!

Depending on what session you are attending, the apparel changes:

  • Boxing Classes you will need boxing gloves, wraps, shorts/tights, Mouth Guard and a t-shirt.
  • No-Gi Jiu Jitsu just wear tights, a t-shirt and your Mouth Guard
  • Gi Jiu Jitsu, you will need a Gi and your Mouth Guard
  • MMA, you will need MMA puffy gloves, shin guards, wraps and your Mouth Guard.

A GI is a special jacket and pants worn to compete in GI Brazilian Jiu Jitsu competitions and is used when training for GI Jiu Jitsu comps and just in general. GI Jiu Jitsu tends to be a slower pace of Jiu Jitsu as you can hold onto certain parts of the GI using certain grips which restricts movement and slows down your opponent. There are also more submissions variations when using the GI.

This is when you train and compete with No – GI, meaning you train in shorts, tights and rash guards only. This is a faster pace form of Jiu Jitsu.

There are 5 coloured belts in Jiu Jitsu. White, Blue, Purple, Brown & Black. Depending on the students’ consistency and dedication, the student should grade every 2 years taking it about 10 years to receive their Black Belts.

We require 1 months calendar notice with your full and final payment.
