Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) is the world’s fastest growing martial art. Here at Progressive BJJ we embrace its evolving nature and so named our club after our philosophy of continuing personal and community self improvement.


The academy is headed by Daniel Lawson, a 1st degree Black belt under Professor Daniel Cherubin, 3rd degree black belt and head instructor of DC jiu jitsu Australia.


We offer classes to suit all ages and genders and encourage anyone who has thought about trying BJJ to come down and try an introductory class.  The training style taught by Daniel allows the techniques to be used across self defense, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu competition and mixed martial arts.


We pride ourselves on creating a friendly team environment that challenges and encourages. From weight loss and improved fitness through to competition training, head coach Daniel and our team have the passion and experience to help you achieve your goals.


See you on the mats.
