About our Kids Program

Our Kids Program caters to 3 different age groups. 5-7 years old, 8-11 and finally our teens Class from 12-15. Led by European Champion Marcus Phelan, our kids programs will develop numerous qualities in your child. Their fitness, ability to defend themselves, their confidence, balance and coordination and much more. Jiu Jitsu is a fantastic alternative to the standard team based sports offered in schools. Your child will learn from one of the best Jiu Jitsu athletes in the country in a fun, safe and professional environment.

5-7 Years Old

The objective of this class is fun. Marcus has designed plenty of games, coordination drills and grappling basics to keep the kids focused, engaged and enjoying themselves!

8-11 Years Old

Still using fun and games, the goal of this class is to develop further your child’s motor skills and build some strength and fitness. This age group focuses on building good, safe grappling skills that will carry them through to the teen and adult age groups.

12-15 Teens Class

Structured much more similarly to an adults class. Our teens class has multiple elements from fitness, strength and gymnastic based warm ups, to clear and concise technical instruction and controlled sparring to finish.

About our Adults Program

ECJJA is not your typical Jiu Jitsu academy. Here our mission is to provide you or your child with world-class Jiu Jitsu instruction.

Our members come from all walks of life ranging between 5 and 65.

Beginners Course

Begin your Jiu Jitsu journey by joining one of our renowned beginners courses. Every two months we begin a fresh 8 week cycle of our Beginners Course. Start alongside a group of others brand new to the sport and progress together from day one. 

 The course has 8 different time slots to choose from with early morning, evening and weekend options. It also has both gi (with the kimono) and nogi (submission grappling wearing shorts\tshirt) classes. We cover all the basics in detail throughout the course and the cost includes a brand new kimono and belt for you

Mixed Levels Classes

Our Mixed Levels classes are where you will head after our Beginners Program. Expand your technical knowledge and physical abilities while you progress through the belt ranks.

Train alongside European and World Champions!

Nogi Classes

Jiu Jitsu can be practiced with the Kimono (Gi) and without (NoGi). A faster paced version of Jiu Jitsu with some different techniques in play, we have classes specifically for Nogi training.

Open Mat

Open mat is one of our members favorite times in the week. Every Saturday and Sunday from 1-3pm the mat is free for all students to use as they wish.

Practice some techniques you learned during the week, do some sparring, or just chill and hang out! Always a good vibe and a packed mat.

Some information about our memberships

As part of this very site we have an online learning platform that you will gain access to with your membership for no extra cost. Review techniques from or expand your learning from home.

Many Jiu Jitsu academies force students to wear a particular colour uniform or specific patches. Here you can wear whatever GI you like.

Here you will not be made bow to picture, line up in order of rank or be told who you can and cannot train with. We focus on the things that really matter, like your progress and enjoyment!
