About Advance BJJ and Fitness
At Advance BJJ and Fitness, established in June 2019 in Jakarta Barat and have quickly grown to establish ourselves as the best BJJ gym in West Jakarta.
We are delighted to be associated with one of the most well respected and established affiliations in the world being DeBeen 100% Jiu Jitsu.
The huge advantage of being part of such a huge association is that with Peter DeBeen, founder and owner of DeBeen 100% Jiu Jitsu has more experience than most, he has had his Black Belt for more years than most have been training, holding a 5th Degree currently, and he is dedicated to growing Advance BJJ and Fitness. We will work closely to develop and grow our join programme to align with his philosophies and teachings.
A FREE trail class is offered to all completely new students to BJJ at Advance BJJ and Fitness to experience what it is genuinely like to train in the discipline of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. All visitors are welcome both local and International.
With over 12 years of experience, we dedicate our training to Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, mainly in the Gi and weekly classes in No Gi / Wrestling. We will offer a dedicated kids training programme focusing on fun, discipline and learning to help focus and develop confidence in kids once this is appropriate to do with Covid 19, and taking our students safety into account. Also, we offer our own Women Empowered BJJ and Self Defence Programme.
Adult Beginners classes are our most popular area, with intermediate classes available too. Most notable and significant point of our academy is the curriculum. Our curriculum is designed to get the most from our students, whether they want to compete and challenge themselves on the mats, or they want to be in a sport where they can grow and develop for the rest of their lives. Also within our training, you will learn valuable techniques and mechanisms to enable you to be able to defend and attack in a situation off the mats, which we feel is crucial in this day and age.
We offer a unique facility where we have a large indoor and outdoor training space, which has been a blessing during the local PSBB rulings as we have been able to offer outdoor BJJ training and be fully compliant with the Governors rulings – this is rare in the city of Jakarta and a huge benefit to our students wishing to learn the sport.
Our academy is located in the West Jakarta area where we have the ONLY foreign trained Black Belt Professor in the area, with our brand-new facility, brand new equipment and dedicated coach. We are just minutes, sometimes in walking distance, of many restaurants, coffee shops and shopping mall. Places to visit around the academy include: Jakarta Aquarium, Museum MACAN, Central Park mall, and only 20 mins from Soekarno-Hatta International Airport.
We hope to see you soon on the mat!

Since de Been 100% Jiu Jitsu established itself as Australia's First Jiu Jitsu Academy in 1993, Jiu Jitsu has grown at an enormous rate. Their Mission was to establish Jiu Jitsu In Australia - they have achieved that and are now at the next stage of their plan. No longer just satisfied with establishing Jiu Jitsu in Australia, their new mission is to raise the level of Australian Jiu Jitsu to World Class. To be successful in their new mission they needed the help of passionate likeminded instructors who share the same vision and want to be a part of this great journey.
The time had come for us to enforce our catch cry once again:
"WE LEAD OTHERS FOLLOW"
Since 2016, deBeen 100% Jiu Jitsu entered a new era. To allow their mission to evolve they created a model to allow affiliations to be part of their journey. This is where Advance BJJ and Fitness will sit, and work closely with their tried and tested methods of Jiu Jitsu progression and development.
POLDA METRO JAYA - RESMOB TRAINING
WE COACH THE ELITE!

The division is a specialist Detective division who serve and protect the people, based in the city of Jakarta.
These guys have an incredibly difficult role in enforcing the laws of the Country and need the best training around to ensure that their self defence skills are as current as can be. With BJJ fast becoming a worldwide martial art and developing day by day, ResMob decided that it was time to add this skill to their arsenal and contacted us at Advance BJJ and Fitness to teach them and coach them.
We accepted this offer with pride and honour that we can help them to make a difference.

That could be to lose weight, get healthier, or tone up – our classes will to all of this and more. With a combination of circuits including kettle bells, battle ropes, plyometric box, sliding discs, agility ladder and cones, and resistance bands along with body weight exercises we aim to focus on getting you in prime shape.
Private 1-2-1 training
Private 1-2-1 training sessions are dedicated sessions to focus on either BJJ or Fitness & Conditioning. If you feel that you are not progressing quickly enough or want to really focus on developing your skills, then a private BJJ session is what you need. Dedicated time with the instructor to work on the details and areas of concern that you feel (or he feels) needs honing. Similar with Fitness & Conditioning, private sessions are much more dedicated, and focussed on your personal goals opposed to the whole class having an overall workout.
Private training is available to be conducted in your home if you have the space and mats to do so - please contact us to book a session.
Coming Soon - Kids Class
Putting your kids into Jiu Jitsu not only teaches them self-defence and how to handle being bullied but also helps them build self-confidence, self-esteem, a healthy lifestyle and discipline while learning how to fit in to society and into their school environment.
No Gi / Wrestling BJJ Class
Coached by Yusef, ex National Iranian Wrestling Champion, our No Gi classes are for those who wish to learn Jiu Jitsu without wearing the traditional Gi or kimono, but rather in shorts and rash guard. Some students prefer No Gi and others prefer Gi, however we believe that to gain the most from our Jiu Jitsu it is best to experience both Gi and No Gi classes. At Advance we focus more on Gi classes as all techniques in the Gi are transferrable to No Gi, but not always the other way around.
Women's Only BJJ & Self Defence
Based on World Renowned tried and tested programmes, Advance BJJ and Fitness are soon to launch their Women Empowered Self Defence programme. This programme will be based on the skillset of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, however tailor made to help evade and avoid the most common attacks, including your positioning, your awareness and techniques to protect yourself if you get into a challenging situation.
