Nexus Jiu-Jitsu

Start with a 7-Day Free Trial

Welcome to the nexus academy


Melbourne’s Premiere jiu-jitsu Academy


Nexus offers a variety of Jiu-Jitsu classes for every age and skill level.

Private classes are also available by request from Monday through Saturday.

White to Blue BJJ

The biggest step in your Jiu-Jitsu journey is simply walking through the door to your very first class. At Nexus Gracie Jiu-Jitsu, we guarantee not only a challenging experience, but a rewarding and pleasant one as well.

All classes are guided by Head Instructor Murat Karadenizli, the founder of our martial arts academy and a second-degree blackbelt. After your first session, we'll offer you a 7-day Free Trial so you can experience all Nexus Jiu-Jitsu has to offer.

Blue to Black BJJ

After qualifying to attend Nexus Jiu-Jitsu Advanced Classes, you'll take your skills to the next level. Learning with one of Australia's most technical and highly regarded Jiu-Jitsu practitioners, you'll develop a deep understanding of Jiu-Jitsu to earn your Black Belt and beyond.

Hatha Yoga

Suitable for all levels, Hatha is a potent alignment-oriented practice that emphasizes the forms and actions within yoga postures. Our yoga classes are based on physical postures (asanas), deep breathing, mindfulness, and listening to the body.

Children's Bullyproof BJJ

The Nexus Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Little will prepare your child for the outside world by teaching respect, dedication, and the skills to deal with any bullying situation they might encounter. This is especially common at school. We'll teach your child the techniques they need to always be able to defend themselves. This class is suitable for all children aged 5 to 15 years old. 

Beginners MMA

Mixed martial arts (MMA) is a full-contact combat sport that allows the use of striking and grappling techniques, both standing and on the ground. The popularity of MMA has exploded in recent years with the mainstream success of the UFC and the emergence of other mixed martial arts promotional companies. MMA draws from a variety of other martial arts and combat sports such as Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Muay Thai, boxing, wrestling, and Judo. MMA integrates striking (punching, kicking, elbows, and knees), takedowns and throws, and submissions by joint manipulations/locks, and chokes. 

White to Blue No Gi BJJ

Gi Jiu Jitsu is grappling with the use of a traditional Gi, which allows you to grab the clothing of your opponent. No Gi is grappling without the traditional uniform—instead, you wear shorts and a rash guard. In No Gi you cannot grab your opponent's clothing. To be a complete BJJ player, you should train in both.

beginners Judo

Wrestling is one of the oldest sports in the world and a core part of mixed martial arts. The Nexus MMA Wrestling program teaches takedowns, takedown defence, and positional dominance for mixed martial arts, allowing you to dictate the flow of the fight. Wrestling is also fantastic for developing explosive power, strength, balance, and leverage skills.

"Friendly atmosphere, clean facility, supportive members. Murat takes the time to teach with a good focus on safety. My kids love it here as well."

Jenny Vouthas

"If you are considering Nexus as a place to train and develop your Jiu-Jitsu game, then honestly don’t even bother looking anywhere else. Don’t hesitate. Jump in and come in for a roll."

Xavier McMahon

"Highly recommend Nexus as a place to train, whether you are new to the art or have some experience and want to continue developing. Classes are well-structured with clear instruction from Murat, and there is a strong emphasis on safety and respect."

Stewart Grant

"Nexus Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu offers a great, clean training environment, with friendly people and a highly technical form of Jiu-Jitsu directly connected to the likes of Pedro Sauer and Helio Gracie."

Hadi Bultan

"As you can see, anyone who knows Murat knows he's a guy with very high skills. He's got great discipline and values. He comes from a great family. He's not just teaching a lifestyle. For a lot of people, and I believe Melbourne and people here in Australia, they are lucky to have a guy like Murat to share the techniques, to share his knowledge, to devote his time to teaching other people. I wish I could have him over there in my school."

Professor Pedro Sauer

"Excellent place to train and a great training environment to be a part of. Murat is an excellent instructor and I highly recommend training at Nexus Jiu Jitsu."

Bradley Hanson

"Murat is one of the most precious commodities of the Melbourne Jiu-Jitsu landscape. A truly wonderful instructor, and a great training facility to boot."

Phillip Grapsas

"I have been training for almost 6 years now, and I still never regret the day I have started. Nexus Gracie Jiu-Jitsu focuses on the basics of self defence and the ability to subdue a person as soon as possible. It is known for its friendly environment and cleanliness. Highly recommend for people who want to not only work their art of defence and overall physical fitness, it provides interpersonal skills far beyond imaginable."

Rauf Demiral

"Starting Jiu-jitsu as a beginner with no knowledge of martial arts was tough for me. When I started at Nexus and experienced the mind-blowing technique I was immediately hooked. I see improvement in my game every day thanks to Murat and the Nexus team. After 3 years of training at many clubs I could not find the motivation and knowledge supplied to me from Nexus. I have met the best training partners and friends that I will have for a lifetime. Everyone is always friendly and helping each other to improve. Couldn't recommend Nexus enough!"
