"My wife got me a black Hyperlyte in 2013 so I didn't need to cut as much weight for competition. It quickly became my favorite gi, very light and very reliable. I still keep it in my bag on competition day just in case." - Jacob Staader
Where it all began...
I started martial arts when I was 5 with karate and then Muay Thai when I was 9. I started Jiu-jitsu in 2006 when my dad started his MMA career. We were training on some jigsaw mats in a garage which eventually moved to a bigger location and became a Gracie Barra academy. I trained at Gracie Barra Newcastle until 2013 then moved to Gracie Barra Central Coast where I eventually received my black belt in 2018 before moving North to Alliance Jiu Jitsu Brisbane later that year.
January 5th 2018 – Received black belt from Danilo Coltro - Gracie Barra Central Coast
"Jordan and the Hyperfly Australia team are the best in the business. They first sponsored me in the gi when I was a last minute replacement for the Australian Jiu Jitsu Grand Prix in 2014. I got the invite on a Tuesday and had a new Hyperfly gi to compete in by Wednesday. Very authentic and reliable people" - Jacob Staader
