BJJ Introduction : In 1914 Japanese Judo and Jiu-Jitsu master Mitsuo Maeda came to Brazil and pioneered Brazilian martial arts. In return for helping the Brazilian politician Gastao Gracie, Maeda taught Jiu-Jitsu to Gastao’s son Carlos. Carlos in turn taught his brothers. He then went on to further refine the art via constant no-rules competition, developing what is now known as Gracie Jiu-Jitsu (otherwise known as Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu). Renzo Gracie is the son of Robson Gracie and grandson of Carlos. World Championship Martial Arts is proudly affiliated with Team Renzo Gracie Ottawa (

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is about respect. We respect all members of the academy equally and we train as a TEAM.

At World Championship Martial Arts our focus is maintaining the highest level of instruction in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. This art is known as the most effective martial art in the world, although it is new to martial arts standards. Today, in any reality-fighting tournament 99% of competitors will have a certain level of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. It has been proven to be consistently effective in combat situations. We train with a partner in every class. In doing so, you quickly learn what works and what doesn’t 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. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) is easy and fun to learn, but takes hard work, discipline and dedication to master. Our classes will generally comprise of a brief warm-up, guard passing drills, positional drills, technique and training.
