Our story so far.

Renegade is home to a community of people practising Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.

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.

Our Commitment to cleanliness.

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.
