Te Manawa Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Queenstown | Self Defence Classes, BJJ & Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) photo

Te Manawa Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Queenstown

We are instructors of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) classes in Queenstown. We teach mixed martial arts (MMA), submission grappling and self-defence classes, where you learn how to protect yourself. We also offer kids classes, where children can learn a fun and exciting contact sport.

We have been privileged to have 5th degree Blackbelt Professor Rodrigo Teixeira as our lead instructor for 1 year, check out his bio to see how lucky we have been to have access to his knowledge and experience. 

Our current lead instructor is Jess Fraser, amongst the first of Australian females that have made Brazilian Jiu Jitsu her career, she is an outstanding BJJ athlete as well as community leader. She continues to work tirelessly on both pursuits and changes the landscape of jiu jitsu within Australia as a result. Though she is an accomplished athlete (earning her black belt in a record 6 years) she is most well known for creating and leading the internationally recognised group, Australian Girls in Gi.

Train in Jiu Jitsu with Masters World Champions. We are a Caio Terra Association affiliate, headed by husband and wife team, Brent and Paula Te Kawa, who have spent most of their Jiu-Jitsu years traveling the world to train, gain knowledge and compete in some of the largest Jiu Jitsu tournaments in the world.

We offer modern sports jiu jitsu, self defense, women only classes and also kids classes.  Check out the schedule for classes.
