Professional qualified instructors, ready to provide you with the best training experience.
I was born and raised in Sydney. My passion and journey as a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu practitioner began in 2006. I began my learning under the wonderful guidance of Professor Lemos & Professor Dornelles. The Gracie Barra team is the secondary family anyone should join if you are looking to improve your current mental & physical situation. As an Occupational Therapist I truly believe in the benefits of BJJ for the young & old. Brazilian Jiu Jitus is the gentle martial art.
Why do I love BJJ? Simple. I value being challenged & learning something new about how I work under pressure. I also value learning in a suppportive team environment. Each member of BJJ under the Gracie Barra family is a unique piece of gym equipment, with something to share & always there to support you in your own journey. As a parent, Occupational Therapist & now BJJ instructor I love sharing the techniques, culture & value system of Gracie Barra to students of all ages. Watching a shy child step onto the mat & then development into a confident & respectful individual is incredibily rewarding. Training with adults in their pursuit of physical &/or mental welling being is also another reason for my passion & belief in BJJ. You don't need to be of a slim build, flexible or be able to lift heavy weights to participate in BJJ. I want to share all I know about BJJ with anyone willing to learn and look forward to one day earning my Black Belt as a Gracie Barra family member.
