I have been the head kids coach at Axis Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Academy on the Gold Coast for the past four years now and it gives me great pleasure to see all the children progress through the Gracie BJJ bully proof program.

As the Head kids coach and a parent myself I believe it is important that all kids should learn a martial art. Not only does it have a high level of fitness it also teaches the children respect and discipline which will help them in their life long journey.

I have been training with Jason Roebig at Axis Jiu Jitsu Academy for the past six years now and honestly I would not train anywhere else his knowledge and love for the sport is phenomenal and I believe that he is the best Jiu Jitsu coaches in Australia. Jason's classes are at such a high standard his details of the Gracie jujitsu connection are mind blowing and you're guaranteed to walk away having learnt something new every class.
