« Perfect! Matthew was very knowledgeable in his discipline. He was efficient in his training and patient with a rookie like myself. I had a bunch of questions which he answered clearly. After we finished the session I felt more confident in my BJJ and I know that he can teach me a lot more. »

BRAZILIAN JIU-JITSU PRIVATE LESSONS WITH CERTIFIED BLACK BELT - 4 Convenient Locations across Toronto and the GTA

Methodology

4 locations across the GTA where we can train: Toronto (midtown), North York, Vaughan and Aurora.

I have developed a range of classes to fit the different needs of my students. This includes anything from fitness all the way to preparing for jiu-jitsu competition. Just tell me what your goals are and we will achieve them together.

Classes can include a fitness component, technical analysis, warm up, mobility training and sparring. A class does not have to include all the components - it depends on the student.

Brazilian jiu-jitsu is a social, fun and exciting way to get fit while learning how to defend yourself in various situations.

I can teach anyone ranging from toddlers all the way to senior citizens. Age does not matter, weight does not matter and neither does physical ability. Anyone can start jiu-jitsu at any level.

I look forward to speaking with anyone that is willing to try and train this beautiful sport.

Background

Although I am a graduate of the University of Toronto, I have over 25 years of grappling experience. I started training and competing in judo at the age of 6 and eventually earned my brown belt in that discipline. Later in my teens I transitioned into no-gi Brazilian jiu-jitsu training with former UFC champion Carlos Newton and UFC veteran Mark Bocek. Eventually I started to focus more on traditional Brazilian jiu-jitsu with my teacher, Cesar Rezek, and was awarded his black belt from Cesar at the Nova Uniao headquarters in Rio de Janeiro after training there for several years (home of UFC champions Jose Aldo, Renan Barao and legendary coach Andre Pederneiras). He also spent almost a year training in Brasilia with 1997 World Champion Joao Roque.

I also co-founded Jits Magazine, one of the premiere jiu-jitsu media networks in the world with several million views on our Youtube channel. This venture has lead me to traveling, training, learning, competing and teaching around the world including Brazil, Japan, Thailand, Hong Kong, Abu Dhabi, Europe and more. My travels exposed me to learn techniques from some of the best masters in the sport.

EXPERIENCE:

- Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Black Belt

- Judo Brown Belt

- Over 25 years of grappling experience

- 12 Years of teaching experience

- Training with world champions & UFC fighters.

- Co-founder of Jits Magazine

Perfect! Matthew was very knowledgeable in his discipline. He was efficient in his training and patient with a rookie like myself. I had a bunch of questions which he answered clearly. After we finished the session I felt more confident in my BJJ and I know that he can teach me a lot more.

Excellent! Matthew saw flaws in my grappling and corrected them, definitely what I expected during this private lesson.
