Our classes

Find out more about each of our classes by reading through the class descriptions. With the variety and flexibility of our classes, you’re sure to find a level and time that fits your schedule.


Each fundementals class begins with a 10 minute conditioning session comprised of movement drills and calisthenics. A short sparring session is offered at the end of class and is completely optional based on comfort level.

Module 1

An introduction to the fundamental techniques and movements of Brazilian jiu-jitsu. Applications to both self-defence and competition are addressed.

Module 1 classes are for beginner White Belt students, or students looking to clean up technique.

Module 2

An intermediate class which builds on the basics. This class is recommended for students who have a strong understanding of the foundations and techniques practiced in Module 1.

Module 2 classes are reccomended for White Belts with at least 2 stripes.



Advanced class begins with drilling, a detailed breakdown of advanced techniques and then extensive sparring rounds to apply what you have learned. Our coaches have been exposed to the latest competitive jiu-jitsu techniques and they break them down and explore them in this class.

Advanced classes are reccomended for Ble Belt or higher students.


No Gi Grappling

This class focuses on Jiu-Jitsu without the gi (the uniform used in all of the other BJJ classes). Each no gi class consists of a short warm up, followed by instruction and then a focus on sparring. No gi grappling has less emphasis on grips and more on movement. For practitioners who focus on gi a no gi class will force you to think differently and will open up your gi game.

An intermediate level in BJJ is recommended, but all levels may attend this class.
