Professional and the best in Darwin!!!!Amazing place for adults and children! My children have been going here for 4 years and I began my Jiu Jitsu journey nearly 2 years ago. The coaches are amazing, professional and the best in Darwin!!!!!!!!!
They are a great crew!I started attending classes in 2016 at the age of 46. It was very daunting just walking into the facility for the first time but the instructors and other participants were very supportive and welcoming. The classes were well structured with a variety of skilled instructors. who broke down moves into clear steps, and gave us ample opportunity to practice with people at all skill levels. The instructors spent time with every participant and gave great feedback on how to make improvements.
Amazing coaching staff and a very family friendly environment...My boys have been coming for 3 years and absolutely love it. Not only have thewy learned BJJ skills but also good sportmanship, respect, discipline and self confidence. They have made lifelong friends through the club and so have I. Highly recommend De Been Jiu Jitsu Darwin!
