Brazilian Jiu-jitsu


Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) is a grappling and submission art designed to use leverage and positioning to create an opportunity to defend yourself from an opponent.

Each class focuses on helping you develop proper technique, and an understanding of the concepts and fundamentals of authentic Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. The Momentum BJJ program is the only Team Renzo Gracie school in Saskatchewan, and we are affiliated through the Ottawa Academy of Martial Arts.

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Training  

Brazilian Jiu-jitsu at Momentum Martial Arts

At Momentum BJJ we believe in training authentic Brazilian Jiu-jitsu in a friendly, safe, and fun environment.  Our students are from various demographics and professions but it is hard to tell the difference once you step onto the mat, because all students are treated as equals.  Everyone is so nice and helpful with zero ego.  That is what makes Brazilian Jiu-jitsu training at Momentum Martial Arts, fun.  We teach you techniques and then let you try those techniques out against a training partner.  As a grappling art we spend most of our training sessions on high quality mats.  At Momentum you will find Zebra mats in two of our training spaces.  This enables our students to train without having to worry about any preventable injuries.  We also have a common tradition to ensure that ALL students introduce themselves to their training partner before starting a technique, drilling, or simply just grappling.

Our top priority is to maintain authentic BJJ training in a safe atmosphere.  We do not sacrifice quality for quantity.  Each class is progressive, however anyone can join at anytime and see results.  We have men, women, youth and children that train here at Momentum BJJ, and everyone understands that we are part of one team, one family and have a mutual respect for each other in class.
