About us – C2 Martial Arts is a Legion 13 affiliated BJJ gym in Ocean Reef (near Joondalup)

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a weaponless martial art that focuses on grappling and groundwork and is effective even against a bigger and stronger opponent. It was designed to defend the weaker, smaller person.

How training in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu or any martial arts for self-defense, helps build your character!


Helps develop COORDINATION, balance, and vital motor skills.



Self-defense can save your life but many people suffer more by lacking CONFIDENCE. They usually cope by having a poor self-image, being lazy, fighting, having a bad attitude, and may even become trouble makers. BJJ will help build their confidence as their skill level and game improves. This will have an overflow effect on their personal life.



Learn to FOCUS, whilst practicing the principles of mutual respect, listening concentration, and teamwork, which are all infused into the fun, games, and drills.

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu uses Mixed Martial Arts techniques and was introduced into the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) by Royce Gracie, who used to dominate and defeat his opponents using “groundwork”. This is the history of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) and where it all started. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) uses techniques, leveraging, and positioning which leads to submissions. 

C2 Martial Arts is a Legion 13 academy and we are a Legion 13 affiliate. We are located in the northern suburbs of Perth, Western Australia. We are in Ocean Reef, 7 minutes from Joondalup.

Crimson Cruz

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Perth – Legion 13 Black Belt

In 2008, Crimson attended Gracie Barra in Cannington (now called Legion 13). When Crimson started BJJ at our Legion 13 HQ, he was heavily overweight and was looking for a lifestyle change. At the end of his first trial session, he signed up with Legion 13 and has not stopped training since. When he started he was a white belt. After more than 12 years of consistent training, he was honored in December 2019 to receive his Black belt from Professor Grayson West (Legion 13 sensei).
Learning BJJ has taught Crimson humility, patience, and perseverance which develops over time, as BJJ cannot be learned in a day. Crimson understands that there will always be someone faster and stronger than you. BJJ will enable you to respond by use of leverage and timely positioning, which will result in submitting your opponent.

Everyone has their own style, but Crimson will identify where there can be room for growth to increase a person’s creativity and skill. At  C2 Martial Arts Academy, Crimson will teach you the BJJ Basics which will be taught with a Gi (kimono) and No-Gi.
He has worked closely with his sensei, Grayson West, a world champion and a professor in BJJ for many years. Crimson has become a multiple Champion at State and National levels in Australia, in his division. He has also trained with many international world champions such as Mendes Brothers, Andre Galvao, Eddie Bravo, and Augusto “Tanquinho” Mendes.
Having taught his young stepson and daughter BJJ, he has instilled self-confidence, discipline, and respect into their world. He has also had a positive impact on their lifestyle getting them outdoors and teaching them self-defense skills. He has mentored many students, of all levels, throughout the years making a significant impact on many lives.
After almost a decade of training, Crimson has accepted an opportunity to take over the Northern suburbs Legion 13 academy, in Ocean Reef (5 minutes from Joondalup). With him, he brings years of experience and dedication, passion, personable nature, and supportive teaching style.
Crimson hopes to continue to pass his extensive knowledge on to others and to create a family friendly, safe and a respected atmosphere in our gym.
C2 Martial Arts academy is creating an atmosphere of Growth, Confidence and Skill for all ages. Crimson is committed to teaching Self Defense in a family friendly and fun environment.
