Where it all began...
My martial arts journey began in 2009 It was a typical karate kid story as I fell victim to physical bullying at my local high school. I was recommended to join and train Jiu Jitsu by my now coach. Unfortunately, due to my family moving to Brisbane late 2009 and facing a few financial issues I had to stop training in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu as we couldn't afford it at the time.
My love for Jiu Jitsu had never faded.
In early 2013 we moved back to Perth where I was blessed with a well paying job. I immediately jumped back on the wagon and started training Jiu Jitsu again. My love for this martial arts keeps growing and growing every day. To me, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is more than just a sport; it’s a philosophy that shapes the way I work, live and relate to others (on and off the mat). It has helped enhance my faith and it has taught me respect, discipline, patience and perseverance.
"I first met Jordan and Sarah from Hyperfly Australia when I competed at the East Coast Australian Championships. I was instantly captured by their loving nature and their passion to see people achieve their full potential. The hyperfly team have been dear friends to me ever since and always go above and beyond to help me in my vocation. I am truly blessed to represent such a wonderful team that sends a positive message and joy of Jiu Jitsu not only around the country but the globe" - George Garley

"YOU CAN’T TEACH HEART! Something the we as athletes live by, day in and day out, on this journey. The hyperfly Gi’s and Rashies are by far the best in the industry! They are high quality and long lasting and fit perfectly. I actually feel like black panther everytime I put on hyperfly rashies" - George Garley
