Team Renzo Gracie Ottawa

At Team Renzo Gracie Ottawa our focus is maintaining the highest level of instruction in BJJ. BJJ is known as the most effective martial art in the world, although it is relatively new by martial arts standards. Today, in any reality-fighting tournament 99% of the competitors will have a certain level of knowledge in BJJ. Why? Because it’s been proven time and time again to work. We train with a partner almost all the time. In doing so, you quickly learn what works and what does not against an opponent who is resisting. We emphasize technique and position. Proper technique and good position will dictate the outcome of a fight whether in competition or on the street. BJJ is easy and fun to learn, but takes hard work, discipline and dedication to master.

Our students have the opportunity to train at any of our numerous BJJ seminars, which we conduct. We have world-class champions visit Ottawa on an almost monthly basis. Also, the academy frequently organizes trips to New York City, which makes our club unique. All our students have the occasion to train at the NYC academy with Renzo Gracie and his instructors when we travel to Manhattan.

Our classes (schedule) will generally comprise of a brief warm-up, guard-passing drills, positional drills, technique and training. The two Brazillian jiu-jitsu programs we offer, Blue Belt and Purple belt, are designed to help you achieve the colour of belt indicated. Our live practice classes, randori, are limited to those with a minimum 1 month of experience as to maximize the quality and safety for all involved.

We now have women-only classes (schedule) for ladies who want to train Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and self-defence in a fun, safe, female-student only setting.

The OAMA Thai program is broken down into distinct classes to provide the best training possible fromthe novice to the pro-fighter. Our Basic Muay Thai program includes the Conditioning class and the Technique class. The conditioning class focuses on training methods to develop a well conditioned body. This might include: skipping, push-ups, crunches and bag work as well as other conditioning exercises. The technique class will focus primarily on punching and kicking techniques and prepare the student for the Advanced program. The Advanced program is for those students who have that competitive edge and the desire to be in the ring. Advanced classes will teach specific techniques such as elbows, knees, and the clinch and include sparring in the ring. Enrollment in the Advanced program is based on a minimum 9 months basic training and/or approval from your Kru.

Competing in Muay Thai is completely optional and no pressure is ever put on students to do so.
