Brazilian Jiujitsu

Brazilian JIUJITSU is a ground-based fighting style that emphasises techniques for controlling and submitting opponents. Brazilian Jiujitsu is regarded as the best martial art for self-defence. It focuses on the use of leverage, grip and position to control and overcome greater size, strength and aggression with lesser size and strength. 

Our Jiujitsu classes comprise of both GI and NOGI classes. GI classes are the traditional classes and are performed in the kimono with a large portion of techniques used involving the use of the clothing to control and submit your opponent.

NO-GI grappling is a modern branch of traditional jiujitsu without the kimono. It is faster paced and better suited to those looking to compete in MMA.

Both classes begin with a warmup followed by various solo drills, technique demonstration, partner drills, and generally end with rounds of live sparring.

We have four qualified BLACKBELTS on our coaching staff which makes us the premier choice for Brazilian jiujitsu in the Southwest. ALL classes are suitable for the absolute beginner through to our advanced competitors.


Kids Brazilian Jiujitsu

Our classes are suited to children aged between 4 to 13. Brazilian Jiujitsu is widely regarded as the best martial art for self-defence and we believe that ALL children should know how to defend themselves in the event of an altercation.

Brazilian Jiujitsu also teaches children how to conduct themselves in a group setting, and instils confidence, discipline, teamwork skills and the importance of respect. We are also very proud to play a huge part and be affiliated with one of the largest and most successful kids competition teams in Western Australia in Coringa Jiu-jitsu.

Class sizes range from between 18-35 students in each class. Each time our class sizes increase, we accommodate with an increase in instructors per class as well. We attempt to maintain a 1/12 ratio of instructor/student, however as mentioned above, we train our children to maintain discipline, respect and focus throughout the whole course of practice.

If this ratio isn’t ever met, we are always confident that they will still learn what’s being taught effectively, while maintaining good behaviour.

Strength and Conditioning

Adding Strength and Conditioning to your martial arts regime will boost your athletic performance and prevent injury. Participants can expect to use barbells, dumbbells, kettlebells, box jumps, ropes, aerobic machines, slam balls and many other tools to improve all aspects of strength and conditioning.

The class is non-contact, using training methods to increase strength, speed, power, endurance and energy system conditioning, with the aim to prepare the participants for the physical demands that combat sports (MMA, Muay Thai, Brazilian-JiuJitsu, Wrestling and Boxing) place upon its athletes.

The class begins with dynamic warmups, mobility-based movements, and then we get into the class emphasis of the day which varies from more strength work to energy system training. If you are looking for a challenging class that will enhance your overall athleticism, then this is it.
