What our clients say

Great gym with great coaches who are incredibly knowledgeable in the martial arts they all teach. The rest of the staff are also great and as a bonus there is a small weight room with a cable machine and all the free-weights you need. The class scheduling is also good especially if you work a 9-5 or are in university.Glad to have picked this as my first gym.

Overall, I am satisfied, and I definitely recommend it. If you have kids, please sign them up for the kids' classes. Joel, Zuka, and Daniel are amazing, and you will have world-class treatment.Coming from Brazil and having trained for ~ one year there (I'm still a white belt, though), you might be a bit skeptical about joining the combative program. However, I gave it a chance, and I enjoyed the classes. In the combative program, you learn the foundation of BJJ and basic moves, which will certainly speed up your learning in the long term.

Joel and his team at REV MMA are absolutely incredible to work with. I enrolled my 4 y/o and my 7 y/o as well as myself for both class and privates and we are all hooked. The children’s programming is great and really instills discipline and confidence with the kids while giving them really life skills to keep them safe if need be.

I was able to train at REVMMA on a trip from Georgia. What an outstanding training experience. On top of exceptional instruction from Joel Gerson, everyone training made me feel right at home and worked with me like I was part of their program. From the time I walked in the door several members introduced themselves with a sincere welcome. Again, what an outstanding experience. John Canter

Our experience at REVMMA was great. From the moment we walked in, we felt welcomed by the friendly staff. The facility is clean and spacious and the children’s classes are both fun and educational. They emphasize discipline, respect, and teamwork, instilling valuable life lessons along with martial arts techniques.I highly recommend it to any parent looking for a top-notch jujitsu program for their child!

Been training BJJ at Rev for a year and I really enjoy it. Joel and Arthur are great instructors who take the time to explain technique and come around to assist. Classes are big enough to have a variety of training partners but not too big where you feel like you are just another face on the mats. The advanced class has a solid group of training partners who are respectful and want you to get better. Rev is a great gym and worth the commute no matter where you are travelling from.

I recently had the pleasure of joining RevMMA, and it has been an incredible journey of self-discovery and growth. Chris, the welcoming face at the front desk, played a pivotal role in helping me choose the perfect mixed martial arts discipline that best suited my interests and goals.Chris's expertise and genuine interest in each individual's my aspirations were evident during our initial consultation. He took care and time to explain the various classes offered at RevMMA.The atmosphere at RevMMA is incredibly friendly and welcoming. No one hesitates to offer a helping hand or share tips to enhance our training experience. This sense of camaraderie is something truly special and sets RevMMA apart from other martial arts gyms I have considered. Special thanks to Coach Julius for his great mentoring.I recommend RevMMA to anyone interested in mixed martial arts and personal discipline. Ask to talk to Chris at the front desk and i'm sure he'll be as of much help to you as he was to me.

A Gem in the Jiu-Jitsu World!Joining Rev MMA in December was the best decision I've made. As a beginner in martial arts, the Gracie Combative program, led by amazing instructors Joel and Arther, offers the perfect, structured learning path. It's unique in that every in-class lesson is paired with a video lesson, accelerating the learning process.Rev MMA's community is also a highlight. Every member I've met has been friendly and supportive, creating a wholly positive vibe that permeates throughout the club. The front desk team, especially Chris, have been incredibly helpful and accommodating, adding to the overall pleasant experience. Plus, they're the only Gracie Combative certified club in Toronto, which is a testament to their quality.If you're considering exploring Jiu-Jitsu, look no further. You would be doing yourself a disservice by not signing up at Rev MMA. It’s not just a Jiu-Jitsu club, it’s a transformative journey into a healthier, stronger, and more resilient version of yourself. I can't recommend it highly enough.

I always wanted to learn boxing but felt I was too old and had some physical concerns. All staff from the front door to the mats have each "tuned-in" to my needs and encourage and accommodate me. I'm happy to say that chronic, painful back tightness has been cured with boxing. My chiropractor agrees and has doubled the period between adjustments. I golf 100 rounds per year and vice-skip at curling 2x week from fall to spring. Both were suffering previously because of my back. I would like to invite my fellow gray-hairs to come out, get fit/strong, stay sharp, and and learn a new skill. Super nice community here.

I’ve had bad experiences at other places for trial lessons. Some places are unorganized. Others only care about signing you up.REVMMA is different. Administrative team is amazing, well organized and friendly. The facilities are clean and welcoming.Arthur and Joel are amazing instructors. They’re both very charismatic and great at creating a safe and fun environment for learning. It really help students feel like they are a part of a community.

A recent incident threatened the safety of my family. In our local pharmacy. On a Sunday afternoon. Completely unprovoked.Learning how to survive an attack and protect myself and my loved ones became a priority.The elite level of instructions from each coach. The community of trust and respect from every classmate. The outstanding attention and support in private sessions. The growing confidence.All reasons why Revmma is the best of the best. 5 stars plus!

My 7 y.o. kid loves this place! We switched her coming there 3 times a week based on her positive attitude. I have to say we tried a few activities before (gymnastic,karate,etc.), but only these trainers found right approach to my child. Thank you!

I joined back in August 2019 specifically for kickboxing and never regretted this decision. REV coaches are very attentive to everyone, regardless of your experience level. I’m a beginner myself but I always feel safe and supported. At the same time I see the same coaches provide great training for advanced level students. Would recommend this to anyone who wants to try out MMA and isn’t sure where to begin! You’ll feel welcome from the get-go!

Hands down, this is the best MMA Gym facility in GTA with amazing skilled coaches that are warm and patient when teaching and fair when assessing students skills. This is a place where you need to learn martial arts and prove it during classes in order to get your belt.My son was first in the junior MMA program and he is now in the advanced MMA program. He has classes 3 times per week and he loves it. During the lockdown, Joel continued the training on Zoom with online classes, which were very helpful. Parents can also join different classes if they want to, so it is also a family oriented training facility.Highly recommended for all ages!

I feel so lucky that I found this gym! All the instructors are warm, encouraging, and excellent teachers. There are classes and private lessons for every age young sons go, I go, my husband go, and my mother goes! I've never had this much fun getting strong and healthy! Can't wait to continue my journey at RevMMA.

I am a visiting student from another school. From the moment I entered REV MMA I received a very warm welcome, both from the instructor and the other students. Joel has an excellent eye for details and is clear and concise when teaching. He makes everyone feel welcome, supported and takes an interest in all his students. I had an excellent time and am looking forward to many more classes at Rev MMA. Thank you!

“But i need to get in shape before i join a class”

The #1 most common excuse we hear. Many people think they need to get in shape before they come to train. It’s not about who you are or used to be, it’s about the decision to make a better choice right now to be a better version of your future self.


Sick of the gym? Us too. So we built a better one.

With over 30 years experience in Jiu Jitsu and Judo and a pioneer in the Canadian grappling community, the Rev MMA Toronto programs are overseen by World Master's Medalist, MMA veteran and multiple time Canadian Jiu Jitsu Champion, BJJ (IBJJF) and Judo (IJF) Black Belt, Joel Gerson.


One day, we hope to be a part of your success story!

Statistically speaking, martial arts training is safer than soccer, baseball, and more popular sports. Every sport has the potential for injury. This is why we are EXTRA careful when we run our classes, and only use expertly trained ADULT instructors, have matted floors and walls and are hyper vigilant during training. Don’t like to get hit? Neither do we, MOST of our classes can be done with no striking to the face or body.


Everyone who looks like they know what they are doing, joined us without knowing anything, just like YOU! Every student has their first day and those feelings when starting to learn something new are unavoidable. As an established facility, we are used to successfully and safely integrating new students EVERY DAY in our beginner friendly classes and you will be fine.


You would be surprised how common this is and how many people join every day with an existing knee/shoulder/back etc. injury. If you are unsure if your condition is serious or not, check with your doctor, otherwise our coaches can always give you an alternative exercise if you have a limitation that you need to work around.


Yes! Martial arts were designed for smaller, less athletic people to defend themselves against larger, more aggressive attackers. It’s not the size of the dog in the fight that matters, but the fight in the dog. Work ethic, discipline and character are more important than athleticism.


As you probably know, commitment and dedication are major factors in accomplishing goals, we completely empathize with your being unsure when starting out. This is why we offer money back guarantees which can be laid out in your initial consultation with a Program Manager.


Every day you wait to start with us is time wasted where we can quickly get your fitness and strength level up to where you need it for the martial arts training you are looking to do. We take care of your fitness in our classes so you don’t have to outside of our classes. A year from now you’ll wish you started today.


At REVMMA we offer a number of different tuition packages to fit most budgets, because though we know your confidence, fitness, safety and life skills are of primary concern, often-times money is an issue. To get more information about our program packages simply call the number below: 416-847-1020
