Scott

Black Belt  |  Gym Manager  |  Head Coach

I received my black belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu in 2019. I trained extensively with Adrian McDonald, Vincent Perry, and Anthony Perosh. I am also experienced in kickboxing, wrestling, and functional strength training.

I started martial arts in 1996 with a style called Universal Self-Defence, which is a mix of Karate and Taekwondo, with the focus being on self-defence. In my teenage years, I was interested in learning specifically what works in real life and competition situations. This drew me to train in boxing, kickboxing, Muay Thai, BJJ and wrestling.

I compete in local, state and national levels of BJJ and have amassed a pile of medals, but more importantly, a very large amount of friends within the martial arts community.

I continue to train because it is great for health and fitness, but also because it forces you to solve complex problems in high-pressure situations. This mentality can be applied to so many aspects of life, both in and out of the gym. These are important aspects of training, however, the most important reason that I train, is because it's a lot of fun.

Chris

Black Belt  |  BJJ Coach

I have trained in Brazilian Jiu-jitsu since roughly 2005, and before that I studied Chinese Martial Arts for about 7 years.

I have competed in both gi and no-gi competitions over the years. I also help out our competition team with coaching, both in class and on the competition day.

For me learning BJJ is both a joy and a challenge; the process is expansive but ultimately seems to always come back to working on refinement of fundamentals. For a regular person looking for a long term project of self-improvement I think BJJ has much to offer.

 

John

Black Belt  |  BJJ Coach

I was inspired to get into Brazilian Jiu-jitsu after viewing a VHS tape of Royce Gracie in the Ultimate Fighter back in 2000. I trained consistently and in 2018 I received my black belt in Brazilian Jiu-jitsu.

I enjoy training Jiu-jitsu because I feel that there’s no better sport that provides real benefits to life such as practical self-defence, fitness, mental challenge, and most importantly, true friendships.

When I am not training, I am a white collar worker, spending time with my family or if the sea conditions are fair spearfishing.

 

Jason

Black Belt  |  BJJ Coach

Hi, I’m Jason Mould and I’m a black belt in Brazilian Jiu-jitsu. I trained Muay Thai and BJJ for 1 year in Canada before starting in Brisbane when I moved to Australia in 2011.

I train BJJ for fitness and fun - I find that there’s no better way to relieve stress from the office, than to practice choking some of my best friends on the mat.

When I’m not training I enjoy camping and spending time with my two young kids, who will often join me at the gym on the weekend.

Dacian

Brown Belt  |  BJJ Coach

I’m a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Brown Belt and I am an instructor for the morning classes.

I began training BJJ in 2012 to get fit and learn a new martial art. While taking MMA classes I found that I enjoyed the technical challenge that grappling afforded.

Having never been an athlete in my youth; BJJ provided great opportunities improve my health, make great friendships, and engage in the community locally and globally.

 

 

Bistra

Purple Belt  |  Yoga for BJJ Instructor

My martial arts experience started at the end of high school with Kung Fu, where I initially practised yoga as part of my training. I then shifted through Capoeira and finally landed in BJJ, which has been a big part of my life ever since.

I respect the complexity and efficiency of BJJ, especially for smaller-built people, and I think it's one of the best martial arts to invest in for the long term. I am also a firm believer that yoga is an integral part of training as it not only complements one's game but also assists greatly in injury prevention and physical longevity.

When I’m not on the mats I am most likely patting a dog somewhere or fussing over my plants, or losing myself in some other activity I've decided is interesting and engaging. See you on the mats for a roll or to practice a little bit of yoga!
