Thank you Sputniik for the post. But I will just clarify a few things.
This is not so much an "open mat" but rather the beginning of a "semi new" school. Several years ago I registered the business name Southern Cross Jiu-Jitsu Academy, and spoke with my Australian coaches Larry and JD in regards to starting it. Even though both of them were fully supportive, I decided to wait until after I had achieved my black belt and had made the decision to live in Australia full time. As that has happened, the school is now official.
As I work full-time, and teach at Boxing Works, I will be starting slowly, and as such I am only teaching at Daceyville (5 mins from Maroubra Junction) one day per week.
The school is an official Nova Uniao Academy, and is naturally affiliated with Extreme Jiu-Jitsu & Grappling. The name Southern Cross just comes my personal history in jiu-jitsu.
For further information, please see my temporary website (which needs a graphical facelift). This is at www.scjja.com
The only other point I think I need to make is in regards to the above question - all classes are currently Brazilian jiu-jitsu, i.e. with the gi. No gi will follow later.
If you have any further questions, feel free to fill out the online form on the site.
ps. Thank you to all my coaches and friends over the years who have helped me do this, namely Larry, JD, Dede & Assed, plus all my training partners everywhere.
