Brazilian Jiu Jitsu

The Hunter Valley Martial Arts Centre Warners Bay is an official Will-Machado training centre. Principal Brian Hayes, is a brown belt in BJJ, and teaches the program along with our black belt Daniel Ireland and brown belt Kelie Fisher. Our technical advisor is Anthony Lange, and he visits several times per year to teach seminars, and assist with gradings.

The club has already competed successfully in tournaments since 2011, with student numbers growing quickly. Our students have had great results both nationally, and internationally, in such tournaments as The Gathering. Our kids program, Matrats, which is for 6 to 14 years, have also had great results competing in local tournaments in NSW and also in QLD as well.

The Warners Bay dojo also holds a Women and Girls only BJJ Program, conducted by Kelie Fisher, and has a strong association with the Girls in Gi movement.

For children interested in the gentle but effective art of BJJ, the HVMAC centres also conduct children’s BJJ programs. They compliment the traditional karate programs offered, by teaching children resilience, effective self defence, and non violent ways to control and subdue aggressive attacks without striking back. We have Adults BJJ, Womens BJJ and Matrats at our Warners Bay┬álocation.
