It’s that time again, our QW kids have been working tirelessly and progressing in their martial arts journeys’ and now it’s time for them to be rewarded for their hard work. Kids BJJ Grading Day is set to take place on Saturday 29 June. This is set to be our biggest grading day yet with 14 of our students ready to level up. But, before then; they will still need to teach their respective classes and complete their ‘death rolls’ with their peers.
QW presents the next seminar in our series; :Grappling in a Weapons-Based Environment on the Ground”. In this seminar, Richie Quan & Norman Wessels will teach you how to effectively control your environment on the ground with the additional element of various weapons. Learn how to retain your weapon, disarm attackers, and more.
We can’t wait to get the QW comp season started. Come test your mettle and gain valuable experience in a fun and safe environment. Open to all QW and affiliate members.

We trust everyone is taking advantage of the last few days of holidays (for those who haven’t already returned to work). We have an action-packed 2024 planned. To help make everyone’s life a bit easier and to prepare accordingly so you don’t miss out on any events. We present our 2024 events calendar filled with gradings, competitions, seminars, and more. Not everything is foreseeable and some things might change as the year progresses, but fear not; we will update the calendar as that happens. 
We hope you have been enjoying your holidays and feel rested and excited for the new year. We bet you are itching to get back onto the mats, as we are excited to have you back.
