Upcoming Events

JIU-JITSU - Regular Program - 
Classes Start in MARCH 2021! 

Registration Starts February 20th!!
Day one or one day? Martial Arts can conjure ideas of super human strength, agility, and acrobatics, but the reality is that Martial Arts are used to build discipline, commitment, and achievement into our daily lives. Getting "good" in the Martial Arts has more to do with your own personal character than your fitness level or strength. Building that character is the key to success and the goal of our program. Contact us to register for your free consultation and training session, and start on that journey you have thought about for so long.

KUBATON - Tool of Self-Defence 

Sunday July 21st/ 2019 - Thanks  for coming out!!
To carry a weapon for the purpose of Self-Defence is Illegal. However, you may be justified in using "weapons of Opportunity" such as key chains, pens, hairbrush, or even a scrabble tile holder, against a larger, stronger, armed, or multiple opponent(s). Part of our R.E.A.L. (Resistance to Edged, Armed, & Lethal attacks) Fighting series, this is a three hour Self-Defence workshop that looks at how to maximise your chances of surviving deadly force assaults, by using techniques based on the traditional teachings of the "Yawara" and later "Kubaton" that you can adapt to many everyday objects, giving you an instant arsenal against surprise attacks and deadly force encounters. Book today, as seating is limited! 14+/ all welcome! Contact us to Register.

Earn your patch! - Visit the Manitoba Legislative Assembly

Postponed until the Legislative is Open to Visitors
The few crests worn by Bissett Jiu-Jitsu are deeply important and symbolic of the ideals and philosophies of our Art. One of the allowable/ recognised crests open to students in Manitoba, is the Official Flag of Manitoba - The Red Ensign. In order to wear this patch, students must venture down to the Manitoba Legislative building, and partake in a tour (guided or self) and post about the experience. You can go anytime on your own, or with our group, in July. We plan 4 trips per year, so don't miss the opportunity to learn about how your rights are kept, and protected, and see where your laws are made.
