The past 6 years that I have trained under Darko have been great. In that time I have achieved increased confidence, great friendships and I am the fittest I have been in all my life.
His devotion to this martial art is an inspiration to all who train with him.
Sunbury BJJ has a great friendly vibe which makes training a pleasure.
He sets out the classes in an easy to understand and organized structure, he is easy to talk to and ask questions to improve your techniques, and does a great job to get around to each individual student, and check on their progress during class. He is highly knowledgeable being a 5th Dan black belt in Japanese Jiu-Jitsu, and a black belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. I highly recommend Darko for anyone looking to learn self defense in Jiu Jitsu, you wil not be dissapointed.
My name is Jason and I have been training with the Sunbury Jiu-Jitsu Academy for just over 12 months now. Since my first contact I was welcomed into the club by Darko and the members, with understanding, patience and encouragement, as a novice to the discipline.
Classes are always structured to meet the needs of all the students, from beginners to the more senior, with time spent on every individual by Darko. With a wealth of knowledge, he is able to ensure you grasp all concepts of Jiu Jitsu and ensures standards are high.
Now I find myself needing to attend class as my passion for Jiu-Jitsu grows, which is directly related to Darko’s teaching style and the club environment that he has developed. If you are at all interested in Jiu-Jitsu, I would highly recommend a trip down to training for a chat and make some friends.
I have been training with Darko since 2010. Having never trained in martial arts, being in my 30’s and not in great shape I was concerned that I would not be able to participate and the classes would be too advanced for me. This could not be further from the truth. From the very first class I took Darko has always taught in a way that I was able to understand and pick up. He has an amazing ability to teach the fundamentals to beginners whilst still providing challenging techniques for the more advanced students. The atmosphere in the dojo could not be more friendly and welcoming with everyone helping each other progress in their own martial arts journey. There are no egos here with the entire school being committed to ensuring that our training partners are working hard, learning techniques properly but most of all rolling safely. I believe that the encouraging nature of the school is a direct reflection of the values that Darko has instilled in all of us. He is the true epitome of what a martial arts Black Belt should be and I feel blessed to train and learn from him. Jiu Jitsu has become a passion for me and I know that in Darko and his dojo I have found a place that I will have a life long association with.
