Experience it, Live it, Change Your Life with Gracie Jiu-Jitsu

Great location to train for adults and children!!! Owners Danny and Nadia Moroney both are great people. Great instructors! Senior belts volunteer their time and are dedicated to to help instruct and/or assist classes. Everyone is very focused on helping and developing the students to grow. I greatly appreciate: -classes offered everyday of the week ... -many assistants (senior belts) Volunteering for the kids class. They are helping the children to ensure they are learning the techniques properly. -exercises that work on strengthening core and lower back incorporated in the warm up. -warm up that include breakfalls and rolls -kids are constantly reminded to work the technique and work with their partner so no one gets hurt. -very positive environment for the kids ... kids are taught with compassion and enthusiasm -appreciate also if one child keeps doing something incorrectly, focus is on helping the child and not disciplining him or the class as other kids (who are trying to do their best). -increase in stamina, endurance and conditioning developed as a result of the training -increased self-confidence, self-awareness and self-defence the children develop, as a result of the training -competitive rolling time at the end of each class ... (where the kids are monitored by the senior belts to ensure they are bringing out their best and no one gets hurt) -facility has new equipment and mats which facilitate in a better training experience Culture and environment where everyone cares to help each other improve, grow and for each of us to be the best we could be. I suggest everyone try training at this location for 1 month and see for themselves the difference the training makes in their lives.

Amazing place! Not only are Dan and Nadia knowledgeable but they have created a safe and friendly environment in which you can learn regardless of your skill level. If you are looking to get in shape, gain confidence, or just try something new, Bravado has a great community feel where everyone is welcome.

A great academy and one of the pioneers of Jiu Jitsu in Canada. This is where you want to train.

One of Woodbridge first Brazilian jiu jitsu gyms! I started my journey at this gym 10 years ago. I was submitted by a small green belt teenager. I will never forget going home and studying so I could do better the next day. Very humbling experience for someone who had a tough guy mentality all his life. Thanks for being so welcoming.

What do you like most about being a member here at Bravado Jiu-Jitsu?

In my opinion, you are one of the best teachers Canada has. You live and breath jiu jitsu, not only the martial aspect of it, but also its philosophy of life. You have immense knowledge of technical precision and a skill to pass that on to students. You care about the well-being of each of your students, by name. You lead a great team by example. I am proud to learn under you.

Bravado also is filled with people, from white belts to virtually every blue belt, to instructors like Tony, who leave their egos at the door and focus on welcoming, instructing and refining students like myself. I consider myself lucky to have so many top-rate "teachers" at every class. I want the art/science of jiu jitsu and its philosophy to be one of the things that defines me. I'd love to see myself, in 20 years, as a medical doctor with a BJJ black belt, teaching it part-time. There is no better professor and Academy that I could see myself achieving that goal with than yourself and the Bravado team.
