Perth BJJ is owned and operated by Coach Dave Feiner. Ever since he was a child, Coach Dave has been in love with the martial arts. After trying various arts, he discovered Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and started his BJJ journey in 2009, learning under Prof. Askell Nicolaides and Prof. Scott Fitzpatrick at K2 Martial Arts in Ottawa.


Coach Dave and his family moved to Perth in 2017 and fell in love with the town. After noticing the lack of BJJ in the area, he decided to start up Perth BJJ to help foster martial arts, fitness and confidence in the Perth area.

Perth BJJ is proud to be a part of the Carlos Machado Jiu-Jitsu Association and is dedicated to continuing his legacy. The Machado motto is: Train Smart, Stay Humble.

Master Carlos Machado is one of the highest ranked instructors in the world and the nephew of one of the founders of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, the late Carlos Gracie. BJJ is one of the fastest growing martial arts and Master Machado is one of the most sought after instructors.

Since 2009 Coach Dave has trained with Master Machado countless times and follows his philosophy of spreading the joy of BJJ in a safe and fun environment.
