NMMA Kids are AET Kids

NMMA is AET & NMMA Kids are AET Kids. 

So we are proud to be a part of the upcoming AET Kids Openday and Skills workshop on Saturday July 30th 2016

Tonks and NMMA have been a part of the AET family since the beginning and when we compete, we compete as AET. 

This is an excellent opportunity for our children to learn our core values from the best that AET has to offer. 

NMMA already has a crew attending on the day. If you haven’t booked your kid’s place for the event, speak to Jenny or Tonks. 

You don’t want your kids to miss the opportunity to be on the mats with Australia’s No. 1 BJJ team… The Australian Elite Team… AET.

Matt & Mark Roll (Video)

Over the colour & noise of the BJJ Juniors tonight, it was easy to miss Sensei Matt and Sensei Mark down the back of the Dojo having a quiet roll.

It’s no wonder they are good at what they do, no sooner did they realise they had been captured on video, then they requested a playback to get an objective perspective on their previously tight and very subjective situation.

I wonder if the juniors want a play back of their time on the mats.

Ella’s Arm Bar (video)

Our little champion Ella goes into BEAST MODE!!!!!!! after a slow and tentative start!

She finishes it off with a technically near-perfect arm-bar.

Go Ella!
