From the VT1 website:

Jiu Jitsu – the Gentle Art – is an amazing journey that will change your life! Our team is led by Professor Liam Resnekov – 2nd Dan – who received his blackbelt from the legendary Gracie Family. The Academy has 12 authentic Gracie Blackbelts everyday helping students learn the Gentle Art. Our students have become state and national champions and we have also produced multiple UFC athletes.

Jiu Jitsu is fun, safe and easy to learn. Our BJJ programs at Chatswood and Crows Nest are designed to take people with no experience or fitness and give them a confident foundation in the Gentle Art.

Looking at it in motion, some people don’t instantly get the appeal. However once they give it a go, it starts to makes sense. Some even refer to it as the game of human chess.

Our team is friendly, approachable and passionate about helping you achieve your goals.

Competition is not compulsory, but if it’s a personal goal, our highly qualified team will help you to prepare for competition as they are all experienced competitors themselves.
