Hundreds of happy students and counting!

I've been training with Immersion for over 5 year's now and have loved every moment there. The coaches are not only friendly and approachable but also have a wealth of knowledge. If you want to get fit, pick up some great skills, meet an awesome group of people and improve your confidence both on and off the mats then Immersion Mixed Martial Arts is the spot you're after. Highly recommended!

Just started Muay Thai with Immersion just over a month ago and it's been a pretty good experience so far. I was recommended to come here by a friend who fights, which he mentioned his teacher got trained by Keith.Keith and Rung have been absolutely great - they're always keeping an eye out on the ground to 'drill' it into you to get things right. They teach you some practical drills which you can try out when sparring later on. When partnered up with thigh and belly pads, you call out combos for your partner - I liked how once Keith stopped us to comment on the practicality of the combos being thrown out (taking your distance to your opponent into consideration with the punch/kicks you throw).Have to agree with the others that there is generally a very supportive culture - no matter how junior or senior you are, people are there to help correct your technique or give advice.

David and Lee are master technicians in their art and are in the rare percentage of athletes who instruct as well as they perform. If you look at their credentials - you will realise that you are getting world class instruction from world class athletes.But more impressive than that is the culture that they have fostered in the academy. Everyone is welcoming, pursues holistic excellence, is encouraged to explore different pathways in their martial art journey and are supportive of each other. Reviews don't do justice to the experience of being part of a second family - so all that's left to do is stop reading reviews and get on the mats - we'll welcome you with open arms

Joined Immersion after a long hard search for a gym. It is hard to find a gym that has such a caring and inviting environment and without the fully sicks. The trainers here are world class and are attentive and never afraid to push you to the limit! You will not regret coming here, once you step foot through those doors, you will have already leveled up yourself.

Awesome gym with great instructors and training partners. The perfect gym for the high level competitor and also the person who is just starting out. No idiots on the mat and it's like training with a great big family. 10/10. I basically base where I live and work off getting to continue my training here.

I'm a Brown Belt from another club, 10 years of training and international competitor. Due to us not having an accessible kids class due to our living arrangements our 12yo can't train with us consistently. We searched for quite a while to find a suburban club that was both enjoyable for him and had technically proficient instruction. The kids class here is absolutely first rate and Ben is a wonderful instructor. The atmosphere is excellent and the level of kids coming out of this club speaks for itself. Highly recommend for anyone in Glen Waverley.

Great place to train. Everyone there is very supportive both students and the coaches. Keith, Rung and Dave are great coaches. They push you to the right limit, encourage a lot. Training place is big, take a lot of students in one session. You get individual attention, till you get the technique right. 5 stars from me.

I have been attending Immersion MMA, Muaythai classes for the last Three months now, I started because I needed to improve my general level of fitness and wellbeing, and also participate in an activity during my leave.Initially I had my reservations because of my age and level of fitness, also not having done anything like this in the past, the commitment was made and I started.Very honestly, I absolutely Love it and look forward to going for my training lessons, the facility is clean, neat and well-appointed but what makes it for me are the wonderful people who I interact with.The coach in charge of our classes Keith Grant has an exceptional ability to motivate an individual to participate in an inclusive manner and has certainly been a positive influence on me, always encouraging in a firm but fair manner and also making the training sessions fun but also fairly intense with a wonderful sense of community.The support staff and other coaches like Dave Marinakis are always encouraging and warmly welcoming. The Men and Ladies I train with are awesome and always encourage me and take the time to teach and help me improve my fitness and Muaythai ability.In conclusion, I never expected to enjoy Muaythai training at Immersion MMA so much and absolutely love it, it has a wonderful sense of encouragement and a supportive culture. Many thanks and appreciation to all the people at Immersion MMA, I recommend it without hesitation, you will enjoy it tremendously just as I do.

What makes a martial arts gym attractive?- Coaches who are currently competing and teaching the ‘in’ moves.- Great customer service.- A supportive and safe environment to train in.All of these add to the experience, but what truly separates a good gym from a great gym is the camaraderie among teammates, and that’s something you’ll find here. Share an armbar with a friend then hotpot afterward haha!

As someone who has been training BJJ here for over a year now, I can’t express enough how amazing this gym is! The coaches are incredibly kind and supportive, and whilst being passionate for what they do, they provide and encourage quality teaching and training. They also foster a healthy environment of community here - having members ranging from all ages, coming from all backgrounds. I have never felt unwelcomed here. This is also the case for Muay Thai and Wrestling. If you’re looking for a place to start training, I couldn’t recommend this place enough!

This is a fantastic place if you want yours kids to transform to not only physically strong, but confident, compassionate, kind and team players. I haven't seen such great cultured gym. Rest assured you or your kids will be proud and enjoy being part of this great team. My kids grew up with Immersion and I hope yours would too.

Training at Immersion MMA has been one of the most rewarding experiences I've had. From the day I trialled and signed up, I felt welcomed and accepted. Tina went above and beyond to get me training ASAP. Not only did I progress and achieve my goals while training at IMMA, I made lifelong friendships and felt a strong sense of community like no other. Leaving the gang at Immersion has been the hardest part of my departure from Melbourne, but I will be back! I highly recommend getting amongst it and becoming part of the Immersion MMA family. Miss you guys!

The other members that I got paired up with (thank you � for your awesome help during my first lesson) had a lot of patience and took time to explain moves to me.

When I first checked in to this place I was bit nervous as I was new to these things but staff people, they are really good and helpful. They make you comfortable and make you feel one of those. Loved the conditioning workout before muay thai. Registered on the spot.

It was my first experience with BJJ, I've wrestled in the past and have been practicing martial arts for the past four years. David was really supportive and encouraging on the phone. I showed up with my son and they chucked him straight into a gi and onto the mat for class. We both had a great time, the facility is really nice and clean. The instruction is clear and responsible. It's been almost a year now, we're still having a great time as part of the Immersion family.
