80/20 Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu - BJJ/Submission Grappling

There are a lot of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu gyms in Australia. Almost all of them are affiliated with larger organisations and international coaches, and in almost all of them everyone wears their graded rank with pride. 80/20 BJJ is NOT one of those gyms.
Head coach Dion Mendel has created a unique atmosphere at his BJJ club. Without any affiliation to a particular organisation, the issue of “gym loyalty” simply doesn’t exist. Everyone from everywhere is welcome in what Dion bills as “the friendliest gym for BJJ in Perth”. 
But that is a simplification for what has become an amazing network of technique and an unintentional shark tank of BJJ practitioners. And rankings? Don’t worry about it. There’s only one way to find out if the person you’re about to wrestle is a brown belt or a white belt, and that’s by jumping into the tank (no-gi is the way to go at 80/20, but you’re welcome to wear a gi too if that’s your thing).
The result of Dion’s work is in front of you. If twenty different people are on the mat, you’re going to see twenty different styles of BJJ. And the level of skill for the amount of time spent training is phenomenal. If you like your jitz without the politics, get to 80/20.
