Your Sunshine Coast Martial Arts Instructor

Both of Professor Will’s parents are Black Belts in various styles of Martial Arts, with his father holding multiple Black Belts in different styles – so you could say it was in his blood. Living in an apartment above the family academy, Martial Arts training under his parents started from a very young age in Brisbane, Queensland, predominantly in Japanese Ju Jitsu and Judo.

Always gravitating towards the grappling side of the arts, Professor Will was exposed to BJJ (known as Ground Fighting in Australia prior to UFC 1) as a child, but started formally training in BJJ in 2005 during his final year of high school. Competing locally, interstate, and overseas, he traveled to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, in 2011 where he met Master Royler Gracie, head of Gracie Humaita, and joined the Gracie Humaita Team. He returned to Rio to train in Brazil again in 2013. Traveling to train in San Diego every year for 10 years and visiting other locations all over the world to learn has been a significant component of Professor Will’s journey in BJJ. Earning his Black Belt directly under Master Royler Gracie in San Diego in 2018 means Professor Will has a very direct lineage, which is unique in Australia and something he is very proud of. Having only ever taught Martial Arts as a career since he was 16, Professor Will has spent a lifetime on the tatami teaching, training, and learning from others all over the world.

Lineage: Mitsuyo Maeda > Carlos Gracie > Helio Gracie > Royler Gracie > William Tritton
