BJJ Fundamentals

Our basics class where focus is placed on movements, basic techniques and drills. Definitely a class every one can benefit from and is highly recommended for beginners to understand key concepts.


Private Lesson

Available upon request. 





Our BJJ classes are all taught in the Gi. We focus heavily on positional control, escapes, defense, attacks, drills, and an emphasis on repetition. A sure way of learning techniques, based on leverage and technique instead of strength to beat much bigger opponents with ease.

Open Mat

Open Mat sessions are open format classes, where students can do GI or NO-GI sparring rounds, or work with others to drills to work on some of the finer details that may be lacking from their game.

Future Champions and Anti-Bullying Program.

To excel in any endeavor, individuals need to have a strong set of values, solid character and personal skills that gives them perseverance to achieve their goals. Our Future Champions and Anti-Bullying Program was created to provide children aged 5-14 with an environment that allows them to experience and understand core values like focus, discipline, persistence, cooperation and respect.

Children will gain confidence and learn self-defense from drilling proven techniques as well as participating in fun developmental games designed to engage the body in movements and positions in Jiu Jitsu, all under the guidance of North Queensland’s highest ranked Instructors.

Although a contact sport, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu provides a safe and caring environment, which also challenges your child mentally and physically, shaping them to into real life champions both on and off the mats.

The outcome of continued childhood practice of Jiu Jitsu goes far beyond the accomplishments on the mats. The discipline and excellence demanded by our instructors often carries over to the child’s behaviour at home and at school. Children will feel valued, help build camaraderie, make life long friends and be apart of a family- not just a team.

Benefits your children will gain from our Future Champions and Anti-Bullying Program:

  • Improve children’s social skills

  • Enhance self-confidence

  • Better understanding of setting and achieving goals

  • Learn Self-Defense

  • Increase focus, energy and concentration
