WHAT IS BRAZILIAN JIU JISTU?
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a martial art with the aim of controlling a resisting opponent and forcing them to submit. The focus of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is on self defence and overcoming aggressive opponents of greater size and strength with proper technique.
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu’s unique approach to self defence makes it accessible to people of any gender, age and ability. While the journey of acquiring this knowledge is physically and mentally demanding, it helps students improve their discipline, physical fitness, problem solving abilities, emotional processing skills and self-confidence.
At myBJJ HQ, our aim is to equip our BJJ Sydney students with the techniques and the mindset to undertake a journey of self-development through this unique sport.

MARIO YOKOYAMA AND THE HISTORY OF BJJ SYDNEY
After Ryan Gracie, the formidable ‘Pitbull’ of the Gracie Brazilian Jiu Jitsu family, presented him with a black belt in 2006, Professor Mario Yokoyama moved to Australia. Inspired by the Gracie family’s spread of BJJ in the United States, Mario began teaching BJJ in Sydney.
While training his first students in his backyard, Mario proved the effectiveness of his technique by winning numerous MMA and BJJ competitions in local and international tournaments.
His Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Sydney classes became so popular that Mario eventually moved his backyard team to the local PCYC, before opening his first full-time BJJ Sydney academy in Marrickville in 2010.
Five years later, he took the opportunity to take the academy to the next level and opened MY Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Sydney in Camperdown. As one of the largest BJJ Sydney schools, our HQ gym has two dedicated mats, allowing for different classes to operate simultaneously.
Mario’s curriculum ensures each student starting at myBJJ Sydney receives a solid understanding of BJJ’s core principles, beginning with the fundamentals of self defence, before advancing to modern competitive techniques.
Today, Mario’s curriculum is taught in myBJJ clubs across Australia, New Zealand and Japan. With more local and international clubs planned, Mario leads the MY Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Sydney team on a continued journey of learning and excellence.
