myBJJ Dunedin

Established in 2004, Dunedin was the start of our journey in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Since those humble beginnings we have matured into a well-established, professional training centre.

The Dunedin branch is run by Professor Philip Lindsay and his team of loyal senior coaches.

David Davies

Coach

David has been part of myBJJ Dunedin from very early on. Initially, he trained to support family on the mat but these days he enjoys helping out with coaching, especially the kids classes. He gets a lot of satisfaction seeing the students he has helped perfect a technique or do well in competition.

For David, the positive attitudes and values that Jiu-Jitsu instills in its students are an integral part of the martial art. He also likes how Jiu-Jitsu is more like chess than a battle of strength.

Dave Cork

Coach

Dave started his BJJ journey in the Waikato with GroundControl (Will-Machado). Initially, his training was about making friends and learning a martial art with relevance in the "real-world". Since then he has discovered a passion to share what he has learned with other like-minded students.

After gaining his Blue Belt, Dave relocated to Dunedin. There he chose to continue his journey with myBJJ because of its friendly atmosphere and emphasis on technical instruction. Dave continues to assist with teaching and is devloping his skills as a myBJJ Coach.
