If your repository is hosted using bitbucket you can simply go to the setting page on bitbucket website and put it as private repository.

You can check from the shell your upstreams:

git remote -v

the output will be something like:

origin    https://user@bitbucket.org/user/demo.git/wiki (fetch)
origin    https://user@bitbucket.org/user/demo.git/wiki (push)

So it will be:

git remote rm origin

or you can simply copy your project in a new folder and "git init". That project will be just local until you add a new upstream. With this method you will lose the previous commit history.
