Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu


Be a part of the Jiu-Jitsu revolution that is sweeping the martial arts world! Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) is a highly functional grappling art, system of self-defense, and a cornerstone of Mixed Martial Arts training. BJJ was originally designed to allow a smaller person to defend against a larger, stronger attacker in a realistic manner. The Western Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Club offers an exhilarating workout, an exciting new sport, and functional self-defense in a completely recreational and highly social setting. Our club is aimed at absolute beginners with any level of fitness, so come on out!

About the President

Hi, my name is Andrew. I recently started my Masters in Health and Rehabilitation Sciences after completing an undergraduate degree in Health Sciences. I have been involved in martial arts for 9 years, beginning with traditional Okinawan Karate and I have earned my second-degree black belt.  I have been involved in the Western Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu club for over 2 years and would highly recommend the club to anyone considering trying a martial art. The Western Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu club is a fun way to join a welcoming, beginner-friendly sports club that teaches self-defence techniques for sport and practical use. Additionally, Brazilian jiu-jitsu is a great workout and all members of the club are incredibly friendly and helpful. If you are interested in trying a class, feel free to join us!
