A Before and After School Martial Arts Program serving families in the RM of Springfield

Evening Kids Classes 

Tuesday/Thursday and Wednesday Nights

Founded in the concept that the smaller, weaker person can overcome the larger, stronger assailiant, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is an art that naturally fits with anti-bullying and self-defence.

Our kids program teaches how to verbally defend oneself to discourage an attacker and the use of non violent techniques to protect oneself.  It improves listening skills, instills respect and improves confidence.  Most kids joining our program have little to no martial arts experience.  

Our children's program runs in 2 phases per year: 

September to December and January to April, each session followed by a grading.

May and June training is competition focused with the goal of competing in the Manitoba Open and NexGen tournaments.


Registration Closed until the Fall

Next round starts September, 2019

Our BJJ program is available in a special condensed format for 4 & 5 year olds this Fall (your child must be attending Kindergarten in order to qualify)!  Children Grade 1 and up can attend regular kids evening classes.

Founded in self defense but also big in sport, BJJ empowers girls to succeed both on the mats and off!

Running on Saturday mornings, this girls only program aimed at youth aged 10 to 16 years is intended to nurture and promote the fighting spirit of young women through the teachings of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.  BJJ teaches not only self defense, but also techniques that work in real life situations, are translatable into sport competition and levels the playing field between men and women like no other martial art.
