Dedication includes consistency in training, taking care of your health in order to stay active and and how positive one remains emotionally. One should also respect the self, others, and other styles of martial arts. Further more Brazilian Jiu Jitsu promotes having an open mind because the person willing to admit they do not know everything is humble, which in turn allows more space for growth and fulfilment in their life.

Why Train Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ)

Martial arts is a tool for physical, emotional and self-improvement. The health benefits of regular practice include stress relief, cardiovascular conditioning, and weight loss. The emotional advantages of training involve a relaxed state of mind, a sense of self-confidence and enthusiasm.

Although we honour Martial Arts traditions that go back centuries, we are dynamic and are constantly seeking new and innovative ways to enthuse and excite our students.

From white belt to black belt. You will be training surrounded by those with similar ideals in a positive and rewarding environment. The MAQLD team doesn’t just compete in Brisbane we enter competitions all around Queensland and broader Australia, in 2016 we sent a competition team over to the U.S.A.
