Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) is a martial art based on grappling and ground fighting. It focuses on controlling your opponent and applying techniques that force him or her to submit. BJJ is recognised as one of the most effective real-life fighting systems on the planet and is a truly unique martial art – size and strength aren’t as important as skill and technique. Our Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Gold Coast classes are delivered by Gracie-trained Purple, Brown & Black Belt practitioners and we welcome students of any age, gender and experience level.
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Class Description
Students at our Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Gold Coast classes will learn chokehold and joint lock submissions, as well as positional techniques and ground control. Training sessions include warm-up drills, revising and learning new techniques, rolling rounds and a warm down. BJJ is a great fitness workout and is excellent for developing a strong core, improving balance, toning and building lean muscle as it uses all parts of the body.
Matrix classes are divided according to the traditional BJJ belt ranking system. Beginner students will start in one of our white and blue belt classes, which place an emphasis on mastery of the most basic and fundamental BJJ techniques. Higher level BJJ students will have access from purple belt classes through to black belt classes.

More Information on Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu
Most of the techniques learned in BJJ concentrate on taking your opponent down to the ground and keeping them there, enabling you to attack for submissions. 95% of street fights end up on the ground, making Brazilian Jiu Jitsu one of the most effective real-life fighting systems. Various techniques allow the smaller, weaker practitioner to use leverage, grip and position to overcome a larger and stronger opponent. It is a technical martial art that not only provides students with a deeper understanding of the workings and limits of the human body, but also equips them with problem solving skills and greater body awareness.
