Brazilian Jiu Jitsu


North Vancouver Jiu Jitsu

Brazilian Jiu jitsu (BJJ) combines movement, strategy and defence to create “the gentle martial art”.  It will challenge both your body and mind and provide you with instinctive problem solving skills. 

We offer both kids / youth and adult Jiu Jitsu programs (JITS). The programs open to all levels from beginner to advance, following the IBJJF belt and stripe system.

We also offer jiu jitsu programs women’s only and teen girls.


I've never done Jits, what should I expect

In our Jiu Jitsu fundimental class you’ll be with lots of other begineers.  You’ll start with a dynamic warm-up and will then move into the lesson protion where you’ll learn different fundimental techniques, defence and submissions.  You’ll then begin controlled drilling with your partner to practice the movements.

All our classes are controlled and supervised and safe.

What should I wear to a Jiu Jitsu class?

If you’re doing no gi, wear a fitted top or rashguard and legging with comfortable shorts overtop (if you prefer).  Kids and youth should wear comfortable fitted clothes.

If you’re doing gi, we have gis that we can loan you for your first class or you can purchase one from us.  We also carry kids / youth gis and women’s sizes.

All of our gis are high quality, carfully designed by us.

Do I need to wear a Hero Gi?
Nope.  If you have your own gi you’re welcome to wear it.  We only ask that you wash it between classes to promote good hygiene and cleanliness.
Do You have showers / changerooms

We do.  We have two full washrooms with showers and a washroom / change room.  We do encourage that you show up in your workout clothes so you can toss your gi on overtop upon arrival and start class right away.

Do you offer classes for women or girls?

We sure do.  We have both women only classes and teen girl classes (ages 11-16), taught by women instructers.

In our women’s only classes we forcus on both jitsu and self defence, increasing confidence and body awarness while building a sisterhood.

Do you offer classes for kids

We sure do.  We have classes for  kids 4 – 6 years old that explore both jiu jitsu and kickboxing movements in a fun class environment.

We also offer jiu jitsu classes for kids 7-16 and we follow the IBJJF belt system.

Is there an area where parents can watch?
We have an area by the front entrance where parents can sit and watch class.  You’re also welcome to sit on the benches outside by the windows to watch class.

*Please note that during COVID 19 indoor spectators 22 and older are required by the Government of BC to show vaccination proof.

Do you offer child care?

We sure do.  We have a play / homework area for kids to stay entertained while you’re in class.  If your kids are under 7 we offer child care for an additional $5.
