Helio Gracie developed the principles of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu. It gives the weaker the ability and the confidence to defeat stronger and heavier opponents. The discipline was advanced by his son Royler. Now, Ivan continues those teachings here in Melbourne. At Melbourne Jiu-Jitsu Academy you will learn the fundamentals of this martial art, often referred to as ‘The gentle art’.
