Our Jiu-Jitsu Classes

Our school is about realistic training and the pursuit of excellence in self-defence. We don’t just teach technique. We emphasise the importance of timing and positioning, and how even perfect technique will fail if you don’t learn when and when not to use it. Our safe and encouraging environment allows our students to learn the intellectual depth of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu or BJJ in Melbourne.

Gracie Jiu-Jitsu (Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu) is unquestionably the best martial to learn to defend yourself if the fight goes to the ground. On the feet, there are many to choose between. It is important to acknowledge that all martial arts are to some degree flawed in one respect or another. For instance, particular techniques might be unrealistic or inapplicable in the street. All martial arts cover some self-defence situations well, but not others. For example, Wing Chun Kung Fu doesn’t adequately address how to escape from common headlocks, whereas Gracie Jiu-Jitsu (Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu) deals with many different headlock situations on the feet and on the ground.

You can develop the following by practising BJJ:

  • Core strength and balance
  • Overall health and fitness
  • Flexibility and co-ordination
  • Self-esteem and confidence
  • Strategy development

At our Jiu Jitsu academy, we teach people to defend themselves in the hope that they will never need to.

Better to have trained in martial arts and never need it, than to need it and have never trained.

Why Choose Us?

Do any of the following apply to you?

I want to learn to defend myself in a social environment that is right for me.

I’m looking for a relaxed but disciplined martial art learning environment.

I’m more interested in mastering skills than grading for the sake of it.

I’m fed up with instructors who missed their calling as drill sergeants and won’t let me ask questions.

I think I could thrive if I had a caring and friendly teacher who is more interested in me than my money.

Our head instructor, Declan, is a friendly human being. He will encourage you every step of the way and make you feel safe in every situation.
