Chris How

Founder & Instructor

My name is Chris How and I am the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu instructor at Eureka BJJ. I hold the rank of brown belt, which I received from Jamie Murray (Renegade MMA) and Ninos Dammo (AET). I now train at Absolute MMA St Kilda under Lachlan Giles.

I want to tell you about myself so you can have a clear and honest picture of who you will be training with. I hope that you can relate and be inspired to try BJJ. 

I started BJJ in 2011 and it has been my passion ever since.

You’ve heard of those athletic individuals who are amazing at jiu-jitsu as soon as they start and within weeks start beating the other white belts? Well, I was that other white belt. Somehow, I persevered and 9 years later, I’m still passionate about it.

To me, one of the main appeals of BJJ is that it’s a strategic and intellectual game as much as it is physical. The opportunities to learn and innovate are endless. 

With BJJ, you will also find a community, camaraderie and lifestyle that sometimes becomes more than just a by-product of being a practitioner of the art. 

I don’t claim to hold world titles, but I have won a few state and pan pacific masters division golds along the way. I will endeavour to keep learning and improving not only my own jiu-jitsu, but also my teaching and coaching abilities to be the best instructor I can be.

Tl;dr
Brown belt since 2018.
Passionate about teaching BJJ.
Continuously learning the art and striving to get better at teaching it.
Come train with us, we’ll learn some cool stuff!
I will do my best to make each and every class fun and engaging and full of those light-bulb moments.
