“If you want to learn Gracie Jiu Jitsu in Sydney and most importantly understand how it works, Higher Jiu Jitsu is the place to go. I've been around and took trials and classes in many academies and I'm very happy I've found this special place...John knows how to transfer the knowledge. The students care about each other which contributes to the positive culture and vibe. The warm-ups are done with movements that are relevant to what will be taught in class, which is very unique, compared to what I’ve seen in other gyms.”
- Vitor Gomes
“A very welcoming and friendly atmosphere. The class was well structured and easily adaptable to the different requirement levels of the individual students. Fantastic leadership and inspiring culture.”
- Sheena Malcolm
“It's a great environment to learn Jiu Jitsu with a very helpful, engaging and friendly coach in John. The people who train here are also great and extremely supportive. Everyone is there to learn with no egos! I'd highly recommend BJJ to anyone looking to get fitter, more flexible, learn self defence and/or just to learn something new!”
- Ovi Dutt
“Not only the coach John but also every student is polite, smart and kind. Amazing! John’s way of teaching is fantastic. He explains great techniques in detail and helps students until every one of them gets the hang of it. Students do not fight. They try their ideas and techniques in the friendly atmosphere and enjoy the sparring. I think it is an ideal way of learning BJJ. I definitely recommend Higher Jiu Jitsu for everyone.”
- Megumi Hirosawa
"I joined Higher Jiu Jitsu in January 2018 to get back into BJJ after a very long time off the mats. John has done a fantastic job of creating a school where everyone trains hard and treats everyone with respect. I felt immediately welcome and have enjoyed every session!"
- Don Stevenson
