Private Classes

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’.

Gracie Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is founded on simple and instinctive movements. It was designed so that students could learn practical self-defence as quickly and efficiently as possible. As such, The United States Military and law enforcement agencies all around the world rely on it as their crucial hand-to-hand self-defence combat system.
