First of all if you dont know what brazilian jiu jitsu is here is a little match: https://youtu.be/-7DLFqLCFqg
I was wondering if you guys could assist me to get a camera for recording matches?
I was told to get an entry level DSLR and I’ve got a few options, ill post them down below, but if you have any other suggestions I would love them. I am under a 600 AUD budget
Here are the options

Other suggestions Welcome! I would also appreciate if you could put down a lens that is not too expensive

DSLR cameras are good for shooting films where you know the maximum distance between your lens and the talent. When you can control all the parameters of a shoot, DSLRs are great. If you’re shooting sports events, you should consider a standard video camera with an attached lens. One of the DSLR’s best assets – shallow depth of field – would be your biggest headache while shooting sports. You would constantly be adjusting focus.
There is a number of really nice entry level video cameras on the market now, some even capture in 4K for less than $1000.
