Our Programs & Classes
Students and enthusiasts of martial arts have many reasons for their interest in the martial arts. Some are drawn to the physical fitness and weight-loss aspects of training. Others seek to add discipline and self control to their lives, while still others are concerned about safety and self-defense.
Whether you are interested in our programs for mental or physical well being, Malvern Health and Fitness offers a number of programs that will fit your developmental needs and your busy schedule as well.
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) is a martial art and combat sport. It is a combination of fighting and self defence that uses technique over strength and physical attributes to defeat your opponent.
The main focus of BJJ is learning the skill of controlling a resisting opponent in ways that forces the opponent to submit. This can be done by utilising a variety of throws and takedowns to get their opponent to the ground, where they can use an arsenal of chokes and joint locks to win a fight.
Here at MHF our BJJ team is part of the jui jitsu juggernaut Checkmat. Checkmat is one of the best BJJ competitions in the world today.
