we’ve got programs to suit all

At de Been BJJ we believe Jiu Jitsu is for everyone


The Junior program is designed to provide your child with a fun and safe environment to learn the art of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu while developing valuable life skills such as discipline, respect, confidence, and teamwork, all whilst having the best fun doing it.


Our program is tailored to provide a progressive curriculum that will help your child learn and grow at their own pace, with classes that are both challenging and rewarding.


The class structure is formed around a warm-up, a lesson in technique and a shark tank to practice the technique from the lesson and games.


Program Benefit:

  • Great way to build confidence and self-esteem as your child sets and achieves goals.
  • BJJ is a full-body workout that will help your child develop strength, endurance, and flexibility.
  • Learn practical self-defense techniques that can help them stay safe in real-world situations.
  • Provides a supportive community where your child can make new friends and learn valuable social skills such as communication, cooperation, and teamwork.


The Beginner Program is designed for those who are just beginning their journey in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and is open to all ages (adults) and fitness levels.


At de Been Jiu Jitsu we fully recognise the importance of developing the correct foundations as early as possible. In our experience we have seen many students who unfortunately have not had the correct early development in their training, causing difficulties later. If you value the importance of high-quality early development, our Beginner program is a must-try for you.


The class structure is formed around a warm-up, a lesson in technique and partner training to practice the technique from the lesson.


Program Benefit

  • Understand BJJ concepts and fundamental techniques
  • Build self-confidence and enjoy significant gains in your overall fitness level
  • Get out of your comfort zone, remain calm and perform under pressure.


The All Levels program is designed for students who are comfortable with the fundamentals of Jiu Jitsu and want to take their skill to the next level. The focus in this program is to apply technique to comprehensive strategy


Program Benefit

  • Opportunity to train with advanced students
  • Compare strategies and learn more advanced technique
  • Gain a better understanding of more complete BJJ game


The No Gi program is offered in both fundamental and advanced classes. In No Gi Jiu Jitsu program, students wear shorts and rash guards or tight-fitting t-shirts instead of the Kimono GI, allowing for a faster and more dynamic grappling style.


Program Benefit:

  • No Gi Jiu Jitsu focuses on grappling techniques that can be applied in both self-defense situations and other combat sports.
  • No Gi Jiu Jitsu emphasizes quick and explosive movements, which can improve agility, reflexes, and overall speed.
  • No Gi Jiu Jitsu’s emphasis on submissions, control, and efficient grappling makes it a valuable skill set for mixed martial arts (MMA) and self-defense situations.


The Competition program is focused on preparing students for competition. In this program, the focus is on refining techniques, strategies, and tactics specifically designed for competition. Under extreme pressure, we quickly learn the difference between techniques and strategies.


Through competition, we learn secrets about ourselves that we may not have learned any other way. Along with learning technical and strategic aspects, we learn humility, patience, and emotional control.


Personal classes can be great for correcting specific techniques, developing personal strategies, implementing competition strategies, or if you just can’t make enough group classes due to your work or family commitments.
