On Saturday 25th September 2021 we had our sports day which is a requirement for grading the next weekend. We still like to see you at the grading if you were not able to attend the sports day. There were smiles and there were cries, but mostly lots of laughter and amazing Jiu-Jitsu. The team here at mybjjdunedin is very proud of all who came and competed. Watching how far you have grown in your BJJ journey is a delight and is all we strive and work hard toward. We would like to thank the parents of the pupils who competed for their ongoing support and cheering during the matches.Continue reading “Term 3 Sports Day”
Woah, this has been an interesting year for everyone in the world. It has indeed been an eventful year for us here at mybjjdunedin. At the start of this year, we finished renovations to the dojo. During our two grading days of the year, we had several new coloured belts promotions with three of our teens receiving their blue belts. At the competitions, some of our members placed 1st and 2nd in national competitions. Overall, we successfully completed competitions and gradings. This year we have gained new members who are dedicated, mature and progressing really well in their journey in Jiu-Jitsu, we are very proud of you!Continue reading “2020 Wrap Up”

The Dunedin Jiu-Jitsu Team from MyBJJ Dunedin wants to hear about your exciting summer holidays.
Please take note of the improvements and changes we have made around the gym, especially the new locations for the male and female changing rooms.
We have also changed the timetable for kids. Saturday classes have moved to the afternoon!
Mon, Wed, Fri: 4:00pm Littles, 4:30pm Middles, 5:15pm Teens
Saturday: 2:00pm Littles, 2:30pm Middles, 3:15pm Teens
We’re still offering striking/MMA after each of the kids’ classes. 10 minutes for little and middle kids, 15 minutes for teens.
I have been practising Jiu-Jitsu for a few years now and being over 40 years old, I have learned a few hard lessons. The beauty of Jiu-Jitsu that anyone can practice it no matter what your age is, or your physical limitations, or even mental illnesses. There are things we have to consider though if we wish to embark on this lifestyle that is the life of a Jiu-Jitsu practitioner.
Age along with physical limitations (such as injuries) can slow down our progress, but not necessary that it becomes a detriment to our growth in this art. As with every sport/martial art, we have our own different pace of growth.
From MyBJJ Dunedin Team we would like to congratulate all our students on their many achievements this year. Many of you have grown so much in BJJ knowledge and showed attributes of Bushido Code. Special thanks to the parents who helped in the grading party and other events, and the parents who work hard to bring their children on time, keep their children Gis clean, and help with the teaching during classes.
We look forward to seeing all of you next year and hearing your stories about the holidays period.
