Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu

Team Renzo Gracie Ottawa logoBrazilian Jiu-Jitsu is easy and fun to learn, but takes hard work, discipline, and dedication to master. Our focus is maintaining the highest level of instruction in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, training with a partner in every class so you quickly learn what works—and what doesn’t—against an opponent who is resisting. We emphasize technique and positioning, which often dictate the outcome of a confrontation, whether in competition or self-defense.

Both gi and no-gi classes are comprised of a brief warm-up, guard passing drills, positional drills, and technique training. We offer a full schedule of daytime and evening classes, so get in touch to try an entire week for free!
