Having been training at the Academy for 2 1/2 Years, what originally attracted me to Gracie Burwood was that it really focused on teaching & applying the effectiveness of Jiu Jitsu for self-defence regardless of size & strength. The fact it was also affiliated with arguably the best instructor in the world, Master Pedro Sauer provided the icing on the GJJ cake. Robbie (Head Instructor) focuses on teaching technique over power, precision over speed when instructing the intricacies of the art.

The Club culture fosters hard-work and learning which not only makes you hunger to train everyday, but it also instils a sense of family working together with a common goal to improve their Jiu Jitsu. So good in fact I have my 7 year-old son enrolled in the Gracie BullyProof program.
So if you are looking to learn self-defence with universally applicable techniques for all situations, body types, sizes and strength then I highly recommend Gracie Burwood.

In the 5 months that I’ve been with Gracie Burwood, I have been welcomed with open arms by great people and by a great coach. At this academy I had the chance to develop a new skill that I’ve been longing to learn since a young age. With such an amazing teacher, I’m lucky to have stumbled upon this school and I recommend everyone to come in for a trial session.

Joined 8 months ago and really happy that I did. it’s an academy where people treat each other with respect at the same time make each training session fun. it’s very rare that you find an instructor who really cares about the students and that’s what I found in Robbie. he answers all your questions by explaining it from every angle, observes how you practice and makes sure you do it right.

I was originally attracted to Gracie Burwood by the fact that they were one of the few schools in Melbourne teaching true Gracie Jiu Jitsu with a self-defence focus as originally intended, and the warm and welcoming personality of Robbie as a teacher. After joining, I’ve loved the fact that I’ve been able to have fun, get fit, and learn new skills with a great group of guys and girls, with access to the best and latest global curriculum. I can’t recommend Gracie Burwood highly enough.

I’ve been training at Gracie Burwood for more than 2 years now and it has changed my life. Never have I felt so welcomed and received such guidance as Gracie Burwood delivers. It was exactly what I was looking for, I wasn’t interested in competition, I wanted to learn self-defence.

The Gracie Academy In Burwood, is a great place to learn how to defend yourself in a street altercation no matter how big Assailant, with the students goal to learn how to defend themselves on the street and helping each training partner achieve the same goal. With great training partners and great coach in Robbie who clearly explains each technique in the curriculum and then is always happy to explain in the further detail if any questions arise. I truly believe this is the best.
