Authentic Brazilian Jiu Jitsu

LEARN. TRAIN. GAIN.

We are a very technical school that believes in the education and practice of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu as an athletic and personal journey. Education and self improvement is at the core of GFTeam Canada. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a martial arts form that helps you not only improve your health and self defence, it helps you learn more about yourself and how you grapple with situations in your life.

We believe Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is for everyone, whether you are young or old, and athlete or someone who just wants to get into their best shape in a fun and practical way. Head professor Rafael La Porta and his staff welcome you to train with us at GFTeam Canada.
