Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Kids and Adults classes and Private sessions.
I have trained at Reflex Centre for 10 years, and currently I'm teaching kids and adults Brazilian Jiu Jitsu classes.
I started training at Reflex Martial Arts Centre in 2010, initially just training private sessions with Master Dominic Lavalle, exploring my interest in MMA and the various disciplines of martial arts that Master Dom was teaching as well as building my fitness and strength. Over a short period, I was looking for quicker improvement and more challenges, while I'd also understood that Braziliand Jiu Jitsu was the discipline that connected with me the most - so I went head first into weekly classes and I've never looked back.
I've been very lucky over the years to train with the very best fighters to walk through the Reflex doors, all under the guidance of Master Dominic Lavalle and Master Rose Lavalle. I have been taught the self defence and fighting aspects of martial arts, but more importantly - I've been shown how to better problem solve and apply my martial arts qualities to any aspect of life. Over the last 10 years, I've also had the experience of competing in a number of Braziliand Jiu Jitsu tournaments, both in the Gi and No Gi sections. My highest achievement being a Silver medal in the No Gi AFBJJ NSW Championships. I have also won three bronze medals in the Gi and No Gi sections of other tournaments.
Over my years of training, I have had the privilege of participating in BJJ seminars with; Grand Master Vince Palumbo (ICMA Academy), Luke Pezutti (Lion’s Den Academy), Eddie Bravo (10th Planet).
My aim is simply to continue enjoying my learning and teaching, while helping people learn Brazilian Jiu Jitsu for self defence, MMA, competition and fun.
