Build Quality of Life with Gracie Brazilian Jiu Jitsu


Higher Jiu Jitsu is here for the everyday people of Sydney. 

We come together as curious friends wanting to learn more. 

We practice self defence and we study technique to make it better.

Like scientists, we test ideas, and experiment with leverage. 

We get stronger, and healthier. And the whole time we're having fun. 

We don't fight. We play. 

We don't win or lose. We learn. 

We play the long game. And in doing so, we allow the lessons of jiu jitsu to seep into everyday life. The result of this is the ability to flourish, on and off the mats. 


"Jiu Jitsu for Everyday People"

As a beginner I can say that John and the other members have created a great learning environment. Everybody is friendly and supportive and eager to further your understanding of jui Jitsu. The atmosphere is easygoing and everybody looks out for one another to avoid injuries. John is an excellent teacher, his instruction is very clear and he is able to breakdown complex moves in a manner all can understand and follow. I felt I was making amazing progress from day one. It is also an awesome workout!

It’s been a pleasure training with John and the rest of the team at Higher Jiu Jitsu. After only a few months of learning BJJ, I’ve felt I’ve picked up new skills and techniques quickly thanks to such a welcoming and supportive group. John has definitely succeeded in creating a safe, collaborative, and enjoyable learning environment for beginners, all coloured belts, and ladies too!
