About de Been Jiu Jitsu

Unlike many traditional martial arts, de Been 100% Jiu Jitsu techniques are not drilled religiously nor do they form the basis of the training. Instead the uniqueness of Jiu Jitsu training lies in learning and understanding the concepts that underpin the overall art. Jiu Jitsu techniques can only be applied successfully with a solid understanding of leverage and positioning concepts. The concepts will then allow a student to find a finishing technique that can be applied. Control concepts, positioning concepts and defence concepts are passed onto the student in early training and reinforced throughout training. These concepts form the foundation for de Been Jiu Jitsu from the beginner right up to the most elite level.

Peter de Been is 5th degree Black Belt under Carlos Gracie Jr. He was the first non Brasilian to gain a Black Belt out of Brasil.

Pete is the founder (established in 1994) and President of the Australian Federation of Brasilian Jiu Jitsu - AFBJJ. The AFBJJ is the representative of the International Brasilian Jiu Jitsu Federation - IBJJF. The AFBJJ oversees around 40 competitions Australia wide and co runs the Australian National and Pan Pacific with the IBJJF.

Since de Been 100% Jiu Jitsu established itself as Australia's First Jiu Jitsu Academy in 1993, Jiu Jitsu has grown at an enormous rate. Our Mission was to establish Jiu Jitsu In Australia - we have achieved that and are now at the next stage of our plan. No longer just satisfied with establishing Jiu Jitsu in Australia, our new mission is to raise the level of Australian Jiu Jitsu to World Class.
