The only proven style where a smaller person can immobilise and defeat a stronger, larger attacker.
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) is a battle-tested grappling-based system that will teach you how to control and subdue your opponent using technique, timing and leverage. You learn not only how to immobilise an opponent effectively so they can’t attack you, but also how to defeat them humanely without having to seriously hurt them. It is one of the few arts that allows a smaller, weaker person to defeat a stronger & larger opponent which makes it excellent for self defence & MMA competition.
As a bonus, it is a great workout and not boring – this motivates people who normally hate going to the gym and gets them working out while learning practical skills.
BJJ became popular when it was the first martial art to dominate in the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC). It remains so effective today that it is considered to be required training for anyone who chooses to enter MMA competition. Every single UFC Champion trains in Jiu-Jitsu or grappling and it is also used by many military’s and police forces across the globe including our very own Australian Army.
What you learn in our Jiu-Jitsu classes is what works because it’s what our professional competitors rely on every time they step onto the competition mat.

Frequently Asked Questions
What a regular class looks like
Classes are generally broken into 3 parts – the Warm-up, Technical work and then ‘Rolling’ (Jiu-Jitsu speak for Sparring).
Your training will start with warm-up drills involving tumbling, stretching and Jiu-Jitsu specific movements drills. These are designed to get you loosened up & ready to train while also developing your skills at the same time.
Following the warm-up the class will be split into two groups – Beginners & Advanced (each with their own Coach) where you will learn, practice and add new technique(s) to your Jiu-Jitsu arsenal. This time will be spent with a Coach demonstrating a position and technique which you will practice with another student. Your Coach will help and correct you where needed and answer any questions you might have along the way. We were all beginners once and we’ll treat you professionally and with the highest level of patience. We’re confident you will get the hang of it fast!
The last part of the class is Rolling. The objective with rolling is to test your skills, to attempt to apply what you have learned in the class and to have some fun – it is not to hurt each other. All rolling sessions are closely monitored with safety being the #1 priority. We are extremely proud to have developed a fantastic team culture with no ‘meat-heads’ and as a result rolling is an extremely safe & positive learning experience for everyone.
We’re very proud of our ability to turn the average student into a skilled Jiu-Jitsu practitioner almost without them noticing!
