Our lineage is through Richard Norton to Jean Jacques Machado. Richard Norton is a living legend in the martial arts world, and Jean Jacque Machado’s most senior Black Belt in Australia. Some of his qualifications include:
- 9th Dan Zen Do Kai
- 5th Dan Goju Ryu Karate
- 5th Dan Chun Kuk Do
- 4th Dan Brazilian Jiu Jitsu
The skills that Professor Norton has learnt over many years are passed down to the students of Bujutsu Martial Arts and Fitness Centre.
Our students regularly enjoy tuition from a black belt graded BJJ teachers. This is a rare luxury in the Macarthur Region.
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a martial arts self defence system that focuses on grappling and especially ground fighting. The art was derived from the Japanese martial art of Kodokan judo in the early 20th century.
It teaches that a smaller, weaker person can successfully defend against a bigger, stronger assailant by using leverage and proper technique -most notably by applying joint locks and chokeholds to defeat the other person. Sparring (commonly referred to as ‘rolling’) and live drilling play a major role in training.
