Welcome to Jitz with Woody’s…. a blog of our Jiu-Jitsu journey from the remote West Australian town of Newman to the USA for a 6 Month training trip of a life time… the twist? We are doing it as a Family of 4!! from start to finish this is going to be one interesting ride.



We are the Miles-Woodland Family living in the Pilbara region of Western Australia, the town Newman has around 5 thousand people that is primarily dependent on the Iron Ore mining industry.

Myself and wife have two wonderful (most of the time) children a 8yo Daughter and 5yo Son. Jiu-Jitsu is a family passion and lifestyle for us and is something we all do together. Recently we made the decision to take 6 months off work and travel to the USA on a epic road trip to train BJJ with some of the best in the world.

We found that there wasn’t much info on how to manage this as a training/traveling family so thought it would be a good idea to share our experiences and learnings to allow others to follow. The trip begins in July 2017 but as we have found out already there is a lot to do when you leave your existing life for 6 months and go on a journey of a lifetime!
