Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is the ultimate grappling style for street self-defence, sport and fitness that combines a variety of techniques including joint manipulation, take downs, choke holds, hold downs, and technical positions. This strategic, fun, total-body workout will give you the skills to disarm larger opponents or even aggressive attackers. Mixing a great mental workout (strategy) with a great physical workout (total body) grappling is often compared to physical chess.

Check out this quick technical video of a drill our students practiced recently, while learning to defend against a standing choke from behind:

BJJ emphasizes fluid movements with a sinuous, relentless hunt for submissions and is one of the fundamental components of mixed martial arts and it’s popularity is exploding around the world.

Check out this quick technical video of an arm bar drill on the ground our students practiced recently that you can learn in our classes.  You’ll notice that the student being used for demonstration purposes is actually one of the success stories on this page (four years later) and now one of the top leading students in the class:


Statistics show that a disproportionate amount of fights between two people will go to the ground, by accident or through deliberate action. Unless you are a trained ground fighting specialist you simply have no chance against someone with even six months of technical training. Having the technical skills of a proficient ground fighter is critical whether in the street, the ring or the cage. Rev MMA in Toronto has classes to get you started right away in BJJ and get you in the best shape of your life.


Considered the most technical and useful of all specialized fighting styles, the BJJ ground game is just that:

A game. Like a form of kinetic chess, the game is made up of a hierarchy of positions, with different options at each position. With 25 years experience in Jiu Jitsu and Judo and a pioneer in the Canadian grappling community, the Rev MMA Toronto BJJ program is overseen by 5 time Canadian Jiu Jitsu Champion, Jiu Jitsu and Judo black belt, Chief Instructor Joel Gerson.

Using the same techniques and training methodologies Joel learned growing up as the most senior student and lead instructor at the legendary Samurai Club, whose foundation produced a UFC Champion, a World Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Champion and a Japanese Shoot Fighting legend (among many other National and International champions), and whose lineage can be traced to Helio Gracie’s rival and Jigoro Kano (the founder of Judo) student Masahiko Kimura, you really can’t find a better a better training program for beginners to advanced in Toronto for Brazilian Jiu Jitsu than at Revolution MMA.
