Thank you for all your support during 2016. We are very happy with Team SJJA’s results in last year competition. Winning 1st Place in the KIDS Division and also achieving 2nd Place in the ADULTS Division this was an amazing achievement for our team.

We are very happy with the performance and support from all our students who showed a lot of heart in the last tournament. We are very excited to see what our team can achieve this year.

Let’s start 2017 off with a good start and train towards this months competition, Events BJJ Initiator Cup, on Sunday 29th January held at Ryde Aquatic & Leisure Centre.

First Competition of 2017

After becoming an AFBJJ Member (see below), you’ll be provided with a user/password which you’ll need to sign up for the competition. If you are an existing member please make sure to edit your AFBJJ profile before registering to represent our club SYDNEY JIU JITSU ACADEMY, as we no longer can represent Gracie Barra.

Note: Parents please make sure to enter your child for the Gi event and select the correct weight category by weighing your child with their Gi (uniform) on as this is the weight they will fight as on the competition day and will need to be on or under this weight category.
