The good news is that we can help, since much of bullying is preventable with the right training and coaching. Here at REV MMA, we can provide your teen with the physical confidence, experience and skillset in authentic Brazilian Jiu Jitsu they need to protect themselves to come out ahead using non-violent, time-proven strategies.

With over 35 years experience, our Chief Instructor, World Medalist and MMA veteran Joel Gerson teaches the teen REV MMA Brazilian Jiu Jitsu program, and he focuses on providing the safe foundation and structure teens need to succeed. If your child has never worked out a day in their life or they have previous experience in martial arts, you cannot find a better training program in Canada.
The exact opposite is true. Our students learn that everything they are taught is for self-defense in case of emergency only, and that “with great power comes great responsibility”. Parents of students in our junior program find our classes to be a “personality balancer”. If a child is naturally aggressive he or she becomes less so, and if they are shy and introverted, they learn to speak up for themselves and they come out of their shell easier.
The most important factor for martial arts for your child is the right SCHOOL and INSTRUCTOR, who has the right experience working with children, and whose systems and methodologies suit your needs and fit your goals. That said, we do age appropriate and traditional Mixed Martial Arts with belt promotions till black belt, and the curriculum is comprised of the most relevant techniques from several martial arts but focuses primarily on the safest and effective martial art for children: Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.
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.
Most children are put into team sports and forced to train at the pace of a group. While there are benefits to this, we treat children as individuals and let them progress at their own pace, so they only compete with themselves. Nobody sits out in our classes or are picked last for anything, and nobody’s confidence is damaged just because they are too big or too small, etc.
We have a ton of experience teaching children with a variety of mental, emotional and physical conditions who enjoy and do well in our program. Consult with your child’s doctor or therapist to confirm there is no conflict, and if they give you the green light, your child will probably surprise you.
Though your child will learn the importance of commitment and dedication as major factors in accomplishing their goals, we completely empathize with you, the father or mother, 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.
At Revolution we offer a number of different tuition packages to fit most family budgets, because though we know your child’s confidence, 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:
