Safety First: We know that if students get hurt, they won’t be able to train. To this end, your safety is our number 1 priority! Our Foundations program eases you into Jiu Jitsu in a safe and supportive space.

Structured Learning: Imagine learning potentially life-saving skills in every single class. With our 18-class rotating curriculum, that’s exactly what will happen.

Practical Self-Defence: In over 30 years of teaching, I’ve never had a student come to me on Day 1 and say that they want to learn so that they could earn a medal in a tournament! While sport Jiu-Jitsu can be a fun activity, our Foundations class focuses on what most people are looking for: the essential self-defence skills that every man and women should know. Through proper training, you’ll build confidence and learn how to protect yourself and your loved ones.
