Paul Chapman

BJJ Black Belt – 1st Degree – Head Instructor

Paul began his martial arts journey in England in 1995 training in Kung Fu, traditional Ju Jitsu and personal self-protection. Not long after this Paul began trying many other martial arts and finally decided that Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu was right for him.

Training Highlights

It was here that Paul trained under Neil Owen (Infinity Head Instructor) and Neil White at the Doncaster Judo Club (as it was known then). In 2001 Paul visited the Gracie Academy in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil to train and further his knowledge and experience.

Moving back to England Paul opened his own club – teaching BJJ and MMA and having many successful fights himself and training many successful fighters. This club still runs to this day.

In 2014 Paul decided it was time for a sea change and headed to Australia with his family, where he took a position as the Head Instructor of the Infinity Maroochydore academy.

He now teaches at our new Kawana Waters academy alongside Neil Owen. Paul is one of the most experienced BJJ black belts in the region 

In addition, Paul is also the head of the Infinity Instructor Development & Training program as well as being in charge of adult curriculum.
