Be a Renegade

Renegade is a vibrant, safe and welcoming community of people practising Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.

Our Story

Renegade is home to people training in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Mixed Martial Arts.

Founded in 2010 by Jamie Murray and John Mirabella, the academy is a community that celebrates people and culture, skill development and great training experiences.

People come for the training but they stay for the community.

Our instructors have decades of experience in coaching and are black belts in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Their passion for martial arts is only surpassed by their joy in seeing all students find new skills and increased happiness at Renegade.

A great gym to learn and refine your mma or bjj skills. Safe, clean and respectful to all. The coaches are knowledgable & friendly and the culture of acceptance and inclusion makes Renegade the best in my book!

Jamie Murray has built a culture at his BJJ gym that is second to none. The BJJ classes are well structured for the aspiring athlete looking to compete or the hobbyist who wants to learn and enjoy the art of Brazilian Jujitsu. The teaching is high level, the mats are well cleaned, the people are friendly and camaraderie you build keeps you coming back. Great people, great coach and great mentor.

This mixed martial arts community and facility offers the full suite - a safe, sensible, clean, family-friendly environment; world-class expertise and training in stand-up, transitioning and rolling; a collaborative culture; and a unique presence in Australian martial arts. I have been cross-training for almost 40 years, having a handful of black belts and a GB purple belt in BJJ and can I attest to Renegade MMA as a caring and challenging environment for growing in grace and groundwork for me and my children. God bless you and thank you, Jamie, John, Cal, Mick, Harry and the rest of the team :)

our commitment to cleanliness

COVID-19 Clean

The impacts of COVID-19 are significant for all martial arts academies. Being closed for business and more importantly limited in the ways we could connect with our team hurt. That’s why we are committed to keeping our facilities, staff and members as safe as possible with our COVID-19 Safety Policy in line with health recommendations.
