Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Ottawa

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a martial art, combat sport that focuses on grappling and especially ground fighting. Formed from Kodokan Judo, ground fighting fundamentals were taught by Mitsuyo Maeda and Soshihiro Satake. Brazilian jiu-jitsu eventually came to be its own art through the adaptation from Judo. BJJ training can be used for sport grappling tournaments (gi and no-gi) and mixed martial arts (MMA) competition or self-defense.

Judo separated from older systems of Japanese jujutsu passing on to Brazilian jiu-jitsu not solely a martial art but a sport; a method for promoting physical fitness and building character in young people; and, ultimately, a way (Do) of life.

Family judo class

The family class is a wonderful opportunity to spend quality time with your children. Learning self-defense and martial arts techniques in a fun, friendly, family environment while getting fit is a rewarding endeavour worth investing in.

"I remember former Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau tousling with his three boys at my parent’s martial arts school. PM Justin and his brothers Sacha (Alexander) and Michel loved it. They were the perfect age to participate together: 10, 8 and 6 years old. The night before PM Pierre retired, he brought his boys to judo and because of a big snow storm, they were the only students that showed up. I like to think that he retired because he saw the value of …family judo time!  Some of my fondest memories were doing judo with my father and also with my sons (when they were small and I could still throw them at will). Don’t wait, because your children are getting bigger and stronger by the week!"

Judo is made up of mainly holds, escapes, chokes, arm locks, foot sweeps and throws. Chokes and arm locks are reserved mainly for the older children or adults. Many of the throws will be practiced on the soft crash mat, so not to worry. Some blocks, strikes and kicks are practiced and applied to self-defense. The class is recreational and not competitive in nature.

 Karate Class (kicking, blocking, punches/strikes) also runs at the same time as the Family Judo. A family member can opt to sign up for the Sunday Karate rather than Judo and take advantage of the family discount. Lim Vannarith is an experienced Cambodian Karate instructor 3rd degree certified. His expertise is Kumite (sparring) but it is well hidden under his gentle demeanour which is very non-intimidating and perfect for beginner Karate students.

Ten class packages are available with a six month expiry date for these programs.

Karate Ottawa

Shotokan Karate is a dynamic martial art that will develop speed, anaerobic power and aerobic power through techniques and training.  It is usually divided into three parts: kihon (basics), kata (forms or patterns of moves), and kumite (sparring). Techniques in Karate are characterised by deep, long stances that provide stability, enable powerful movements, and strengthen the legs. Initially strength and power are demonstrated instead of slower, more flowing motions. Those who progress to brown and black belt level develop a much more fluid style that incorporates grappling, throwing and some standing joint locking.  Ju Jutsu like techniques and Kumite (fighting) techniques are practised in kihon and kata and developed from basic to advanced levels with an opponent.

Kosen Judo

There has been a resurgence in interest in Kosen Judo in recent years due to its similarities with Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Kosen Judo was a refinement of Kodokan Judo that was developed and flourished at the Koto senmon gakko technical colleges in Japan in the first half of the twentieth century.

Kosen Judo's competition rules allowed for greater emphasis of ne-waza (ground techniques) than in mainstream judo and it is regarded as a distinct style of judo. Kosen is an abbreviation of Koto senmon gakko, literally 'Higher Speciality School', Colleges of Technology in Japan that cater for students from age 15 to 20.

The Kosen schools started holding inter-collegiate judo competitions from 1914. Kosen judo rules for matches allow competitors to enter groundwork however they wish and to remain in it as long as they want. The rules allowed for a more tactical style of newaza to develop and the style is popular for young and old alike.

In 1892 the Tsar government brought over a ju jutsu master named Hirose Takeo. Takeo, one of the best alumni of the Kodokan Judo school, taught officers of the Russian General Staff. The word “sambo” is derived from the word combination “unarmed self-defense ”(SAMozaschita Bez Oruzhiya” in Russian). Vasily Oshchepkov and V.A. Spiridonov are credited as founders of sambo, along with A. Kharlampiev who systematized the techniques and summarized the terminology. Professor Oshenchepkov, a second degree black belt of Judo under Jigoro Kano, also studied Karate in Japan for ten years before returning to Russia. Today, the best known Sambo competitor, Fedor Emelianenko, is widely known as the best mixed martial artist of all time.
