    The key traits we will be assessing our candidates on are:

    – Cardiovascular fitness
    – Strength and conditioning
    – Technical Ability (depending on the chosen program).
    – Mental fortitude and Discipline
    – Competitive spirit

    This will include interviews and non-physical assessments to ensure the right candidate progresses through and is offered this scholarship.

    Athletes will be selected during one of our gruelling training camps.


    Grappling Education was founded to provide the greater Sydney region with a professional, world class martial arts gym. A key part of the philosophy of our gym is to encourage and support up and coming competitors to achieve their potential through focused, structured and engaging training, guided by experts with international competition experience.

    Guided by this philosophy, Grappling Education has launched a series of Athlete Scholarships to help support prospective athletes in their training and competition goals. 


    Drawing heavily from his experience as part of the Australian Judo Team and the National Talent Identification Program (a preliminary program for the Olympic Games), Keller has designed a program that utilises his extensive knowledge base of the highest level of competition. Instead of a one off trial, these programs utilised a training camp (run across a number of days) where the prospective candidate would undergo a series of tests.


    Using this as a benchmark of standard, Grappling Education will adopt a similar approach to identify the ideal candidate for our Athletic Scholarship. 

    Grappling Education has 4 scholarships:


    Successful candidates will receive the following as part of their sponsorship:

    • A monthly stipend of $250 per month to help athlete cover competition, gear, general maintenance fees
    • No membership fees and complete access to the entire suite of classes at Grappling Education, plus membership to the Fortitude Grappling Athletic Program. 
    •  Free branded Grappling Education gear appropriate to their scholarship (Gi for Adults Gi, etc)

    To be clear our sponsored athletes are NOT required to compete for Grappling Education and do NOT have to leave there original team. Athletes only have to meet contractual requirements outlined below to receive the scholarship.

    *Our Teens Scholarship includes the above but with a monthly stipend of $50 instead of the aforementioned
