Grappling Education Sydney


BJJ Adults Program:

BJJ is a grappling based martial art that focuses on using leverage and technique to force opponents into submission using joint locks and chokes. BJJ is widely regarded as one of the most effective forms of unarmed combat and has seen increasing popularity with its representation in international combat sports organisations such as the UFC.

Our program draws upon the experience of our instructors to design a program that is suitable for everyone! Whether you are interested in the competitive aspect, or just want to learn something, Grappling Education’s BJJ program is here to help you achieve your goals!

No Gi Grappling:

No Gi (Simply meaning without the big Gi jacket you often see BJJ practitioners wear) has been increasingly popular over the last 5 years in the competitive martial arts scene. This style of grappling focuses heavily on both wrestling and submission grappling, where your opponent is wearing just a Rashguard and Shorts (limiting the opportunity for gripping, quite different to Judo).

This program is coordinated by our Head Coach Kel, the 2019 ADCC Oceania Trials Champion, who recently competed at the World Championships in Los Angeles, USA in September 2019. He is one of the most accomplished No-Gi Grapplers in Australia and applies his expertise and insight into delivering a modern, competitive approach to this increasingly popular facet of martial arts.


 Wrestling is considered the oldest martial art still practiced today. Originating in Ancient Greece and Rome, this Olympic Sport has two forms; Freestyle and Greco-Roman.

Freestyle Wrestling involves grappling from the standing position with a focus on both upper and lower body grappling techniques.

Greco-Roman Wrestling involves grappling from the standing position with a focus solely on upper body grappling techniques.

Kids Wrestling:

Wrestling is a popular kids sport throughout the world, including the U.S, Europe and the Middle East. Australia is one of few countries with no cultural wrestling program for kids, and we at Grappling Education want to showcase to the community the value of wrestling in a young persons physical, mental and social development.

Focusing on how to grapple and control your opponent, wrestling for kids focuses on fitness, practical self defence, and games to highlight the fun and excitement of wrestling as a sport.

Considered the oldest sport in the world, Wrestling has been used as a fundamental aspect of children’s development throughout the world, in particular in theU.S and Europe. It is a challenging sport, that requires commitment and discipline to succeed in, and these are the traits we help develop in our students.
