Hangar 4 BJJ Club Info

Looking for some info on the Hangar 4 BJJ club (Tyrone Crosse) in Essendon under Will-Machado organisation.

What do you cover outside BJJ?

How many days are available for training per week?

What's the fee structure like?

Any help would be great.


Ty doesn't post here. Some of his guys probably do. What I would suggest is that you go to bjj.com.au and get his contact details and give him a call.


The training is at Essendon Airport, inside an aircraft hangar. Tyrone is now a black belt in BJJ. Tyrone is highly regarded.

Monday to Thursday, 6pm to 8pm, plus Saturday 11am - 1pm. The first hour is "mixed martial arts" - every second Monday the teacher is John Will, Tuesdays/Thursdays has a Muay Thai teacher, Wednesdays/Saturdays is wrestling.

The second hour is straight BJJ.

There is an additional class, "krav maga", which is a self-defense system. Tuesdays/Thursdays 8pm.

If you turned up to every MMA class you would get exposure to MMA, wrestling, boxing, muay thai/kickboxing, takedowns, and more traditional BJJ groundwork.

The criticism of "jack of all trades, master of none of them" could apply to the MMA classes. Whereas the BJJ classes have a syllabus, belt colours, grading criteria, and very clear rules for sparring, the MMA classes are much more unstructured and fluid. However, the classes are very popular.

To be eligible to attend all classes unrestricted would cost you $100 + $99/month.

I am a member and I regard this school as the best option for streetfighting/UFC/the real world in Victoria.

Thanks guys,

Made the call. Sounds great.

Not only do we have a BJJ black belt but we have Ziggy the wrestling coach who placed 3rd in the Olympics if i remember correctly. Also Ziggy used to teach with Dan Gable- a legend of the sport.
Also we have a very good Muay thai coach Gavin
