I visited Virtue academy today to attend the Thalison Soares seminar and was immediately impressed by the gym facilities, mat space and cleanliness. Professor Thiago was accomodating and made us feel welcome. His passion to help the bjj community grow is obvious and infectious. Looking forward to attending more events or some open mats there in the future.
Really good environment, the academy is very tidy and clean, professional professor/coach.highly recommended.

The cleanest gym I ever saw around Australia. Higher performance professors with passion and dedication to teach all aspects of JiuJitsu, from old school to the newest techniques. Safe, fun and honest environment to have our kids, parents and friends together. This place changed many lives and I’m very fortunate to have it to help me to be a better version of myself and contribute to make the world a better place. Osss

Frequently asked questions

Everyone is very welcoming and willing to help beginners.

Just come open minded and willing to learn and remember that getting started it will be hard but hugely rewarding once you commit and embrace the BJJ lifestyle…

Not only form a practical self defence perspective but also for your physical and mental health…

As well as the benefit of joining a great community of people striving to be 1% better everyday.

First check the timetable to see if the class you’re coming to is Gi or No-Gi. For Gi class you can borrow a Gi for your 2x free lessons to try things out. If No-Gi wear board-shorts and a rash vest but make sure your shorts do not have zips as this can damage the mats.

If you’re coming to a Judo class you will need a Gi.

If you’re coming to MMA then wear shorts and a rash vest and bring wrist wraps and your own 12-16 oz gloves.

Besides the clothing you will need a big bottle of water, thongs/sandals and optionally a sweat towel and mouth-guard.

Here is some important etiquette to abide by when joining a class, and also some tips to help your BJJ journey:

  1. Never wear your shoes or thongs/sandals on the mat. Always take these off before stepping on the mat.
  2. Always bow your head when entering or exiting the mat to show respect.
  3. Address the person leading your class as “Professor” if they are a black belt and “Coach” if they are any other belt.
  4. At the start and end of class line up on the edge of the mat in the order or your belt. So getting started as a white belt you will be at the end of the line at the far left facing the mat.
  5. Go for a drink break when the coach/professor announces a drink break.
  6. No profanity on the mat.
  7. When getting started do not use all your strength without any technique, try to go lighter and learn from your more experienced partner. This advances your BJJ faster and prevents injury for yourself and your training partner. 
  8. If you’re rolling and get in the way of a higher belt rolling, stop fighting and get up and out of the way.
  9. Always respect the tap. If you hold a submission and your partner taps physically with their hand, foot or verbally, then let go of the submission immediately.
  10. Breathe. Try to breathe through your nose and control your heartbeat and stay calm. This will let you think about your movements and stop you from gassing out too quickly.

Yes! We have regular women’s only classes, please check the timetable for details.

Yes! We have 12 parking spots available but these often fill up quickly before class. Feel free to double park at the entrance but if that space is also full there is plenty of metered parking available on the street.
