Renzo Gracie Jiu-Jitsu

In 1914 a Japanese Judo and Jiu-Jitsu master named Mitsuo Maeda came to Brazil. In return for help from the Brazilian politician Gastao Gracie, Koma taught Jiu-Jitsu to Gastao’s son Carlos. Carlos in turn taught his brothers. They went on to further refine the art via constant no-rules competition, developing what is now known as Gracie Jiu-Jitsu (also known as Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu or BJJ). Renzo Gracie is the son of Robson Gracie and grandson of Carlos. Renzo has his academy in New York City.

Our vision is to spread Renzo Gracie Jiu-Jitsu in the Ottawa area and to kick-start representation for Team Renzo Gracie all over Canada.


Ottawa Gracie Jiu Jitsu

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 all 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. 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.
