Blue belt program (beginners)

We call this our Blue Belt program because its the goal achieved by every student that undertakes the program. The program teaches basic techniques, fundamentals and strategies that allow the new student to build great foundations. At de Been 100% Jiu Jitsu we fully recognise how important it is to develop the correct foundations as early as possible. In our experience we have seen many students who unfortunately have not had the correct early development, causing difficulties later. If you value the importance of high quality early development we know you will be impressed with our Blue Belt program.


The General program is very exciting as it represents the pinnacle of de Been 100% Jiu Jitsu - as a new student you will marvel and be inspired at the talent in the class and as an advanced student will feel very much home. We invite both beginners and advanced students to our General/advanced program.

We understand that beginners who are attending our Blue Belt Program at the same time, will enjoy the advanced class and experience the their "future" so to speak. This program is not designed for complete beginners as it has advanced techniques, advanced analysis, transition techniques, advanced strategies and a great deal of sparring. Our advanced students are very welcoming and helpful as the de Been 100% Jiu Jitsu family has been brought up caring and nurturing new members.

No Gi

No Gi classes are for those who wish to learn Jiu Jitsu without wearing the traditional gi or kimono, but rather in shorts and rash guard. Some students prefer No Gi and others prefer Gi, however we believe that to gain the most from our Jiu Jitsu it is best to experience both Gi and No Gi classes.


Most will consider the pinnacle of de Been 100% Jiu Jitsu as its Competition Program. It is true that under extreme pressure we quickly learn the difference between techniques and strategies that are fun and those that deliver what we hope.

Not everyone is interested in practicing competition Jiu Jitsu but everyone is welcome - even beginners. Many AFBJJ competitions in Australia and even IBJJF events around the World have competitions for novice.


Our Juniors program is a state-of-the art program that has delivered great success. Not only in competition, where the de Been 100% Jiu Jitsu Junior team remains undefeated in Victorian State and Pan Pacific championship for over 20 years, but also success in forming wonderful balanced and confident individuals.

Creating confidence, developing proprioception, building agility and strength, caring for others and building to future goals are all foundations that we take very seriously in our Junior program. An example of our commitment is the establishment of the Worlds first Junior Elite Team program
