About Us

Welcome to De Been Jiu Jitsu Darwin, our premier BJJ Academy! Established in 2008, our academy has a unique and exciting origin story. It all began with a group of friends who were passionate about testing their martial arts skills. Every Saturday, they would come together for some friendly sparring sessions. Curiosity led them to venture into the world of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ).Intrigued by this new martial art, they decided to take a leap of faith and participate in the QLD championships in Brisbane. With no prior exposure to BJJ competitions or knowledge of the rules, they dove into the event headfirst. Surprisingly, they not only adapted quickly but also achieved remarkable success. The experience ignited a deep interest in BJJ and left them hungry for more. Thus, the De Been Darwin team was born.Since those early days, De Been Jiu Jitsu Darwin has come a long way. As the first BJJ club in the Northern Territory, we consider it a great privilege to have paved the way for the growth of this martial art in the region. Our commitment to promoting BJJ has opened doors to numerous opportunities. For instance, we organized the NT titles at the picturesque Mindil Beach, creating a unique outdoor experience for our participants. Additionally, we secured an NTG grant to host the prestigious Auscup at the convention center, further establishing our reputation as a leading BJJ institution.

One of our greatest joys has been introducing countless individuals to the sport and supporting them on their jiu-jitsu journey. Our programs have evolved over time, with classes now running on most days. Led by our two accomplished black belts and a team of experienced coaches, these classes cater to practitioners of all levels, from beginners to advanced students. We take pride in fostering a warm and inclusive environment where friendships are formed, and a sense of community thrives.

The dedication and passion of our students at De Been Jiu Jitsu Darwin have been exemplary. Many of them have not only excelled within our academy but have also represented us on a global scale. As both visitors to other clubs and competitors, they have consistently made us proud and showcased the skills they’ve honed under our guidance. Our students have punched above their weight, demonstrating the effectiveness and artistry of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu wherever they go.

At De Been Jiu Jitsu Darwin, we strive to provide a comprehensive and supportive training experience. Whether you’re a beginner eager to learn self-defense techniques, an aspiring competitor aiming for the podium, or someone seeking a fulfilling physical activity, we have a place for you. Join us on this thrilling journey as we continue to grow, learn, and share the transformative power of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.
