Garra Jiu Jitsu Academy

Garra BJJ Academy was created by Eduardo Dias and his fellow top students in Australia. It is the only full time Traditional Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Academy in Brisbane to have a world class Brazilian Black Belt as an instructor.

The word Garra in Portuguese means focus, drive, attitude and talent. It is actually the capacity to overcome hard situations.

At Garra Jiu Jitsu we show a technique explaining why you are executing that movement and the best time to apply it on a fight.

We are a family that trains very hard always providing a friendly atmosphere. Come for a free visit and feel the difference.

“At Garra BJJ there are various different types of Jiu Jitsu students. There are those who love competition and there are others that train for other reasons like weight loss, exercise and character development. Jiu-jitsu helps develops confidence and social skills. I respect and support any reason to train and encourage people to help each other during the classes. No one can win a fight without partners that help to go overcome our limits.” Eduardo Dias

Our Mission

The mission of our school is to train the body, mind and spirit through the highest level of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu instruction as a means for individual development and the strengthening of the family spirit - going beyond the competitive realm.


Inside a Garra BJJ School Dojo, there are no opponents. There are only training partners engaged in a cooperative learning experience aimed to make each other better not only as BJJ practitioners but as human beings.


To excel on any endeavour, discipline is essential. It is not different with Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. At Garra BJJ the discipline of training and the willingness to sacrifice for higher achievements is reinforced in and outside the Dojo.


Inside Garra BJJ all people must act with warmth and equality toward one another, regardless of differences in gender, race, religion, nationality, etc. Respect for the hierarchy of the ranks is also very strong and the authority of a Black Belt is truly recognized.
