About Us

Team de Been Jiu Jitsu was first established in 1993. Whilst some martial art academies were teaching bits and pieces of Jiu Jitsu, de Been Jiu Jitsu was the first dedicated Jiu Jitsu academy in Australia.

Jiu Jitsu growth in Australia has been phenomenal. From a handful of students training in Torquay to an estimated 10,000 plus all around Australia.

de Been Jiu Jitsu has lead all the way and still leads today in competition and innovation (competition results can be found at www.afbjj.com).

Our "We Lead Others Follow" motto is now more appropriate than ever, with our exciting new range. 

We feel it is important for us to be recognisable at every opportunity. Others can see who we are and admire our ability, humility and team bond.

Our range has been produced by Koral Fight Co, the World's premier Jiu Jitsu Apparel company. We have three colours in the flagship MKM kimono line, two colours in the Light kimono and two colours in the Kids First kimono. We have the famous VT Pro Flex shorts in all black and black with white gusset. Pro Comp rash guards in all the belt colours and in both long and short sleeve.

Not only to want our team to look the best , we also want them to have the very best training equipment there is.

We know you will enjoy the comfort and feel.

Good luck - Train hard, and remember

"We lead Others Follow"
