Description

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

Hello, my name is Alexander and I am a 4th year student pursuing a honours double major in biology and medical science. In addition to the sciences, I am also interested in history, classics, and all types of sports. I have been a member of this club for over 2 years. A few years ago, I was looking for a different type of workout and decided to try a martial arts club. I then joined the Western Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu club and have never looked back. There are many aspects to the sport, including competition and self-defense. Many of our members are attracted to the competition aspect, even competing in local tournaments. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a system of self-defense that focuses on using technique and intelligence to defend against a larger stronger attacker. 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 out and join us today!
