Excellent facility with 3 black belts and a handful of brown belts makes the instructional second to none in the area. Everyone's very friendly and the training can be as tough as you want it to be. Both my kids train as well and I highly recommend the BJJ journey. Head Instructor Paul boasts a wide variety of skills and experience yet is very humble.

My kids have trained here for over 2 years. They have learned so much more than BJJ. It's given my boys heaps of confidence, great friendships and valuable life skills. A fab team.

This is without a doubt the best place to train! Keeping you fit while learning how to choke people. What's better than that? I've been training around 2 and a half years loved every training session, made some great friends along the way also. Coaching staff are awesome and friendly happy to help with any queries.
