My first experience was a very good one.. everyone was very nice and helpful to me. I have zero experience in this art form. A warm but disciplined environment and very professional. I am excited about continuing to train here.. I will be back bet on that!
If your looking for a professional, knowledgeable, clean, focused place for you or your child to learn bjj then I couldn't recommend this place more. I have two children who learn here. The environment is that of any top level gym and the staff is knowledgeable and focused on you or your child learning not only a martial art but lessons they can carry everyday to make them stronger and better people
Absolutely amazing place! They welcomed my Daughter with open arms!definitely going to evaluate her to the next level. Highly recommend!!!!
It can be pretty intimidating when you first walk in, but you are instantly greeted by friendly faces from both coaches and other students. I'm fairly new to BJJ and thought for sure in a big gym like Black Label Martial Arts I would fade into the background. That couldn't be further from the truth! Malachy takes the time to get to know all of his students and offers individualized instruction during classes. He's also kind of funny sometimes! Absolutely love this gym! Can't imagine training anywhere else!
I just started training here about two or three months ago. I travel full-time and have trained BJJ all over the world. There are a hand-full of places on the planet that make you feel like a member of the family from the moment you walk in. Black Label Martial Arts is one of them! The BJJ here is top-notch and they have training 6 days a week, multiple classes. They have a great group of folks there, especially the owners Malachy and Sarah! I wouldn't hesitate to refer anyone to train here! Oss!
After recently moving to the Charleston area, I tried out a few gyms liking for the best fit. Black Label Martial Arts offered exactly what I was looking for with a great schedule with multiple class times! Everyone was extremely welcoming and the teaching is top notch! Highly recommend!
My oldest son just started his boxing journey and I am thrilled we chose Black Label Martial Arts. Coach Isaac is amazing and everyone in the classes are super supportive. I can’t wait to see the growth in my son! If you’re looking for quality classes, you won’t be disappointed!

I wanna give a Huge shoutout to my #1 Coach, MASTER Malachy Friedman!! Last night’s fight was won months before through Hard work and Preparation in our 5 o’clock Dragon House Private Training. It was his step by step coaching and just the littlest things that he taught me that helped me finish the fight!! I can’t thank you enough Malachy for all the time you spend helping me and my brothers, you truly are a blessing to every fighter you help!

I met Malachy Friedman at American Top Team Coconut Creek in 2010, and I’ve gotta say that he’s an outstanding black belt! I’ve trained and competed against many different black belts and I can honestly tell you that there aren’t many on Malachy’s level as a competitor or as an instructor. Not only has he built a tremendous school based on respect and hard work, but he is also one of the nicest guys in the sport! Training at Black Label Martial Arts in Charleston, South Carolina with Malachy, is one of the best possible investments that you could make in yourself.
