The gym is a laboratory; not a war zone. This is what makes our team successful and unique. We teach high level, technical Jiu Jitsu in a manner in which everyone can understand. Jiu Jitsu does take time to build true skill, so class time is optimized for efficiency. We want our students to have fun and learn this complex art as quickly as possible. Injuries are extremely rare at our facility as we enforce a controlled, respectful environment during live training. No big egos, no one trying to prove themselves, just good times.
THE WORLD AT YOUR DOORSTEP
We have traveled the world training at the best facilities in the world under some of modern Jiu Jitsu’s best instructors. We visit not just to train, but to learn how they run their programs. We have built our academy with the mission to bring the bulk of that experience to Regina and continue to travel the world to refine and evolve our program as Jiu Jitsu continues to evolve. The journey never ends.
From a novice to an experienced practitioner, we adjusting the weeks lesson and live training to accommodate your level of skill. While we generally teach the same subject matter all week long, not all classes are the same and we incorporate technical drills to warm up as opposed to making class feel like a bootcamp. We believe that the entire class should be spent learning and act as a warm up for sparring.
Sparring (commonly referred to as ‘rolling’ or ‘live training’) is done after every class and almost all of our sparring sessions are actively coached. Rolling helps put what you have learned into practice in both specific situations and open training. While we do encourage competitiveness, we have structured our program so that sparring is not a negative experience by ensuring members are controlled, respectful, and focused on learning — not winning at all costs to prove themselves. In our ‘Advanced class’ we increase the intensity when we know we can truly trust our veteran training partners with our safety.
YOUR BODY. YOUR GAME.
When Jiu Jitsu is taught correctly, you don’t need to be super flexible, tall, skinny, or strong to be good at Jiu Jitsu. Once you have put some time into building your skill you will begin to discover your own ‘game’ which is unique to your personality and body type. Your game may be similar but not the completely the same as anyone else’s, making Jiu Jitsu not only a martial art but an expression of self.
These are some videos that will help get a feel for our program. One is an instructors teaching a warm up drill prior to practice, the other is class mates drilling three takedowns for the week.
