Grappling Athlete Training Sutherland

A real passion of mine at FP is grappling athlete coaching around making people the most complete athlete they can be. From Brazilian Jiu Jitsu to Judo and Submission Grappling these require you to view yourself as an athlete to stay injury free, get your best performance on the mat and stay on the mat long enough to realise your potential.

While there is a lot of information out there around grappling athlete training we feel at FP in partnership with Grappling Education we offer a complete solution. A complete solution to the many problems which can face a grappling athlete from day-to-day or over a competitive year such as:
  • How to manage training and fatigue?
  • Best strength and conditioning program for them?
  • Improving strengths and fixing weaknesses – Where to start?
  • Individualizing your strength and conditioning towards your game?
  • Where and how to fit in their technical and tactical development? 

The system that we have developed around training the grappling athlete comes from my own experiences in grappling myself. I have been doing Brazilian Jiu Jitsu since 2008 and currently hold a Brown Belt in both BJJ and Judo. I also compete extensively on the Sydney scene in IBJJF, Grappling Industries and NSW Judo competitions throughout the year. For me competing is always a great way to judge how you are progressing and what you need to improve on. As I mentioned before it became apparent to me that there needed to be a system around this.

From my own research around best methods from developing professional athletes we have focused on 5 main pillars to help develop a grappling athlete:

  1. Technical/Tactical – we can develop specific programs around developing the skills you need in your grappling which cover drilling, specific drilling and implementation in sparring and competition.
  2. Physical Preparation – a strength and conditioning program that covers everything you need for complete physical preparation -strength, conditioning, mobility and recovery.
  3. Psycho-Behavioral (Sports Psychology)-learn how to develop specific skills around goal setting, visualization , motivation and handling the stress of competing.
  4. Lifestyle/Nutrition-we give you the skills and knowledge around fueling your performance, weight management and having the best lifestyle to perform.
  5. Fundamental Movement Skills-a athlete who can move well is less likely to be injured and is more likely to perform better.

As you can see we have put some definite though in providing you the most professional and complete grappling athlete training in Sutherland. We are athletes ourselves and set out to develop a program that we knew would help a grappling athlete reach their potential over the long-term.


  • More cost effective than personal training
  • Keeps you accountable to your agreed schedule
  • Have an individualised program
  • Enjoy the motivation of group training
  • Save time and injuries working with a professional
  • Avoid the long-term progression difficulties of group training
  • Frequent check-ins help you get the best results

I was feeling intimidated the first time I went to train, knowing that I was not top notch with my fitness. Ben’s approach was encouraging and I’m seeing progress and now I really look forward to each session.read more

Highly rated, has individualised my nutrition for a World Masters Comp in BJJ, to compete at a lower weight, without sacrificing strength. And 100% spot on, touching base in how I’m feeling if any adjustments were needed. Meeting GOALS!read more

Before working with Ben I never realised there was so much to exercise and form. He is almost a form nazi haha. This attention to detail though pays off as I have never felt stronger and was able to rehab some old injuries as well. Highly recommendread more
