2017 Self-Defence Course:


Welcome to our annual fundraiser. Each year, we hold a women's self-defence workshop where all proceeds are donated to a charity that helps women in need.

At de Been Jiu Jitsu, we believe all women should have the knowledge and ability to defend themselves. Unlike most self-defense systems that rely heavily on strength, speed, and coordination, the techniques that we teach in this workshop will employ leverage, technique, and timing, so anyone, regardless of age or athletic ability, can make them work against larger opponents.


Dates/times: Monday's 6:00pm-7:00pm

September 25th
October 2nd, 9th, and 16th

Location: de Been 100% Jiu Jitsu HQ,
179 Barkly Street, Top floor, St Kilda

Costs: $20 donation to charity (TBA)

Attire: Casual workout attire

Spaces are limited, register online ASAP to get on the list.

Womens Jiu Jitsu Program

The de Been 100% Jiu Jitsu Womens Program caters for both womens self defence and Jiu Jitsu competition.

As we all know, womens self defence is very important in today's society. An important ingredient in womens self defence is confidence. At de Been 100% Jiu Jitsu we instil confidence which along with great Jiu Jitsu helps our women to protect themselves.

Many women are getting more involved in competition Jiu Jitsu at a very fast rate. And we can see why as it is fun and goes well with goal setting to achieve our very best.

We have a very friendly environment at de Been 100% Jiu Jitsu - we hope to welcome you very soon.




I just completed the 4 week women’s self defence course that de Been Jiu Jitsu St Kilda ran for White Ribbon. It was amazing! Both Matt and Ros are incredible teachers, willing to really take time to help you understand correct technique. I will definitely be coming back on Monday’s! Thanks guys, it was great fun!
