Damien "Beatdown" Brown

HEAD COACH | UFC VETERAN | BJJ BLACK BELT

Damien’s experience in combat, whether from martial arts at a young age or as a military veteran is an invaluable resource to prospective BASE members. Upon his return from active service in Afghanistan, Damien started kickboxing as a means of rehab for his injuries sustained in battle. One year on and Damien had his first competitive fight after finding Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.

Under the tutelage of Dan Higgins, who is widely regarded as the most experienced MMA coach in Australia, Damien has earned his black belt in Jiu Jitsu and has a storied professional fighting career in the UFC and Japan’s RIZIN FF that is still being written today.
