White Belts Only

The White Belts Only class is a basic lesson for fresh white belts. It features no sparring or warming up, and exclusively focuses on technique. Martial arts can be intimidating at first, and this class is designed to ease new members into training.

Just because it’s basic, though, doesn’t mean it’s not important. In fact, fundamentals are the most important part of any Jiu-Jitsu practitioner’s skillset. This program goes over the essential movements, techniques and skills you’ll need in order to succeed in BJJ.

Think of it as an introduction to the world of BJJ. These classes take place on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 6pm, and lead into the 630pm All Levels Gi class. The idea is to learn the techniques in a controlled environment and then work on implementing them in the All Levels class.

What you learn here will be the basis of your BJJ journey for years to come. You’ll be taught Jiu-Jitsu’s key positions, how to attack and how to defend yourself. Any experienced practitioner will tell you that your fundamentals can never be too sharp.

Having trained with the martial art’s originators, Coach Sav is one of Australia’s best instructors to learn these essential skills from.

Intermediate and Advanced

You’ll be ready to attend intermediate and advanced classes once you’ve got some experience under your belt. This program is for coloured belts or practitioners with 3 stripes on their white belt.

Like Fundamentals, these classes start with a warmup that’ll engage your whole body. Once your blood is flowing, you’ll get in-depth explanations of techniques from all positions. The smallest details can make huge differences in BJJ, and this is where small details are focused on.

Each class will end with a rolling ssion. This is an opportunity to hone old skills and practice new techniques. Jiu-Jitsu sparring will work not just your whole body, but your brain too. You’ll see why the martial art is often called “human chess.”

With a focus on advanced techniques and sparring with experienced training partners, these classes make the mats a true learning ground. With Professor Sav’s extensive competition history, there’s no one better to learn with.


There are two broad categories of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu: Gi and No-Gi. As their names suggest, the former is when you wear a Gi and the latter is when you don’t. It’s not just a cosmetic difference.  Grabbing clothing in No-Gi is illegal, and the friction of the gi is replaced by more slippery rash guards.

The result is a far more fast-paced style of grappling. No-Gi training is important for self-defence, as the techniques you learn can be performed on anyone, anywhere. It’s also valuable for competitors, as No-Gi mixes elements of wrestling and MMA training with Jiu-Jitsu.

Like Gi classes, you’ll learn techniques and submissions from several positions. No-Gi classes will focus a little more on takedowns, and feature faster-paced grappling. With thick fabric to grip onto, Gi training tends to happen at a more controlled pace. No-Gi, however, is more frantic.

Many grapplers prefer one style over the other. Everyone agrees, however, that both teach valuable martial art and self-defence skills. We offer No-Gi classes every day at Gracie Botany.
