Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu

At Crocodile Martial Arts our Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) program follows the syllabus of the Carlos Machado Jiu-Jitsu Association, all classes are taught by Professor Anthony Hockley, who is a direct student of Master Carlos Machado.

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a ground-based discipline that teaches you how to overcome a larger, stronger opponent by using their strength and momentum against them. As part of the Carlos Machado Jiu-Jitsu association, we are dedicated to helping you learn the basics of this discipline before building your skills up one step at a time. 

We offer scalable instruction to meet the needs of any skill level and we work hard to maintain an ego-free environment where you train with complete self-confidence. 

In our BJJ classes, you can take on:

  • Powerful throws and takedowns
  • Lightning-quick transitions
  • Ground control and defensive strategies
  • Submission skills to help you come out on top 

Master Carlos Machado has over 50 years of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu experience and is considered by many as a true legend of BJJ. He has received 8 hall-of-fame awards, currently holds a Coral Belt (8th Degree Black Belt), is the head of one of the largest Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu organizations in the world and had a successful competition career spanning 34 years.
