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.

While training Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu you will…

  • Learn to defend yourself on the ground as well as in close range.

  • Get in shape and participate in a life-long activity that everyone from children to those in their 60’s and beyond can do.

  • Have fun while mastering the martial art commonly referred to as ‘physical chess’ due to its depth and technical nature.

  • Improve focus, concentration and increase eye/body coordination.

  • Build muscle and lose fat while learning practical self-defence skills.

  • Learn combat-proven self defence.

  • Develop your mental toughness, problem solving skills and patience.

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!

Rave reviews from our Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu students

Since moving to immersion mma in 2019 my jiu-jitsu has improved so much. The team is really supportive and one of the most positive vibe gyms I’ve ever experienced in the entire world.Head coach Dave is truly inspirational with tones of the highest level of experience in jiu-jitsu and along with the other coaches they deliver world class level coaching every day.Immersion has the experience of all current techniques in one of the fastest growing martial art styles that is continuously changing immersion is on top of all the latest attacks and defense of modern Bjj.I could not name another gym that even comes close to Immersion MMA. It’s worth the drive, come and experience where the best of the best get better!!

I’ve been training Muay Thai here for a year - and the result: I’ve lost 20kg since joining, built a lot of self confidence and met lots of great people to train with. The people training here are great - there are no egocentric maniacs here. The coaches - Keith and Rung are fantastic. They are friendly and will really challenge you to outdo yourself. At the end you’ll learn something new, get ultra fit, learn how to defend yourself - all while having fun. Forget those boring gym sessions... Train here and you’ll see some real result - some resilience and hard work required of course. Will suit any prior fitness level (as you can see from my before and after photo). Don’t wait until you think you are fit enough to do it - you WILL get fit while you train.

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!

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.

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.
