We offer Gracie Jiu Jitsu classes with both the Gi (Kimono) and No Gi (Submission Grappling) for ages 5+. Please show up 10-15 minutes early to ensure classes run on time
Kids 5 - 13
5pm – 6pm
5:30pm – 6:30pm
The Kid’s Program focuses on ground skills including Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu coupled with wrestling. We
offer a children’s class for self-defence, physical fitness and social skills in a fun and encouraging
manner. The children’s class helps to develop gross motor skills, cooperation and simple defensive
skills. All of our children’s classes emphasize discipline and cooperation and develop self-confidence and awareness in our students.
During the class, students learn takedowns, takedown defence, and submissions. At the end of this
class, students participate in a sparring session where they will grapple with each other allowing the student to apply the techniques taught during the first half of the class. The classes are taught in a high energy, fun environment with an emphasis on physical fitness and discipline.
Adult Fundamentals 13+
6pm – 7pm
The focal point of the fundamentals class is entirely on technique. The class focuses on learning and
applying fundamental techniques of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Students practice various techniques using a
traditional Gi, also known as a kimono. Students learn and practice submissions, escapes, positioning
and self-defence. The fundamentals class is directed not only for the beginner but also for the more
advanced students to sharpen basic techniques.
7pm – 8pm
6:30pm – 8pm
Once the student feels ready, he/she is welcome to attend both the fundamental classes as well as the advanced class. The advanced classes will vary each night. Please check the schedule for class
specifics. This class is designed for students interested in advanced techniques for competition and
self-defence. Students learn and practice advanced sweeps, submissions, escapes and counters, how to reverse an attacker and how to force their opponent into submission. Detailed instruction in technique, specific drilling, and position advancement are the main focus of this class. Competition is
encouraged, but not required.
No Gi 13+
5pm – 6:30pm
The No Gi Grappling Program deals with the principles of fighting in close range of the opponent.
The class is based on techniques of traditional Gracie Jiu-Jitsu, and the fundamental principles remain
the same. Adjustments are made to compensate for the lack of a uniform to hold on to. In Submission
Grappling you learn a whole new set of grips. The wrists, back of the neck, ankle, knee and elbow
grips are all different than traditional Gi grips. Students learn takedowns, positions, transitions, escapes, reversals and how to apply and defend against joint locks, chokes and other submission holds.
The curriculum focuses on fighting in a clinch and on the ground. The No Gi Grappling Program helps students develop skills that are useful in real self-defence situations as well as in the sporting environment. This gives students a new dimension to their existing skill set. It may be trained in solely or in conjunction with traditional Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu classes. We think that it is important for students to understand both aspects, considering most tournaments offer both gi and No-Gi divisions.
No-Gi training makes for a faster and more dynamic style of fighting. If you are interested in a good
fitness program or just to be a more complete fighter, the No-Gi program offers a good combination
