About this Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Academy

From A's Dojo Yagoona website:

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu / Grappling

BJJ is a martial art that teaches a smaller person how to defend against a larger adversary by using leverage and proper technique.

Started by the Gracie family in the 1900's in Brazil, where they would test their art against other styles of martial arts in "Vale Tudo" (anything goes) tournaments. In the mid 90's the Gracie's would travel to the USA and take the martial arts world by storm by competing in the now popular UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship) and dominating.

Jiu Jitsu will boost your strenght, conditioning, flexibility and general health.

Our Team


I have been involved in Martial Arts my whole life, starting my training off with Taekwondo as a young kid. Since then I have been fortunate enough to train and learn from some great and legendary Martial Artists in Australia and abroad.

Some of the styles that I have trained and competed in are Kickboxing, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Pankration, Submission Wrestling, Sambo, Crazy Monkey Defence, Floro Fighting Systems, Freestyle Wrestling, Boxing, Catch Wrestling and Muay Thai, at both State and National Levels. I believe in a holistic approach to Martial Arts training to be able to reach its full benefits and achieve that balance in life.

I am passionate and committed to helping my students achieve their goals and being the best coach that I can be. I truly believe that with hard work, dedication and commitment anything can be achieved.

I look forward to working with you soon.


I've been involved in Martial Arts for the greater part of a decade. Starting off as a young kid following his brothers in the realms of Taekwondo.
I have been training at A's Dojo for six years after finding it through a friend. Diving into a wide variety of Martial Arts, I have found a true passion for Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and the art of putting 'everything together' Pankration (MMA).

I have been fortunate to learn from some of the best in the business including living legends Royce Gracie, Cleber Luciano and Chris Haueter.
