About Wiekus Swart’s TapOut MMA Academy
TapOut MMA Academy has some of the top Coaches in Africa and one of our biggest strengths is our passion and commitment to help people reach their full potential – whatever that might be!
We have a wide range of students at the gym, from former ‘couch potato’s’ who start out very unfit all the way through to EFC fighters at the pinnacle of their careers. Most of our students range in age from 16 to 40 but we also have some very small kids (5 and up) in our TapOut Kidz programme, as well as several students who are 40+.
Our Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is headed up by Wiekus Swart who is a well known and highly respected BJJ Black Belt and Coach. Not only is Wiekus the second highest ranked Brazilian Jiu Jitsu practitioner in Africa, but his teaching methodologies are centered around performance, with his students being some of the very best on the continent – proven time and time again at Jiu Jitsu competitions. The level of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu has always been known to be incredibly high at TapOut MMA Academy and those that want to learn and learn fast do so at TapOut.
Our Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) classes are also headed up by Wiekus Swart, where students learn MMA striking, clinch and ground work, for an all round MMA and Self Defense game.
For those interested in boxing only, our Boxing is headed up well known and highly respected SA Boxing Coach Gert Strydom. Gert has countless amateur and professional fight successes under his belt with many of South Africa’s biggest boxing champions and world title holders having had Gert as their Coach. Gert’s level of passion and commitment to his fighters cannot be rivaled. For Gert, the health and well-being of his fighters comes first, and because of this, he continues to have success after success in the boxing ring.
Our TapOut Academy Kidz program is run by ‘Coach Caz’ Cassim Binks and focuses on Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Coach Caz has an incredible gift for working with our kids, making them feel good about themselves, teaching them to win and lose with honor and always to display good sportsmanship.
