Dark Horse Martial Arts (formally known as Bow Valley Jiu Jitsu) specializes in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu in addition to offering Women's Only Self Defence, Adults Beginner friendly Striking, Yoga and wrestling classes. We also offer Kid's Jiu Jitsu all year round!
Dark Horse Martial Arts is dedicated to helping people from all walks of life become the best that they can be. Respect, humility, integrity, and kindness are some of the key virtues we teach and practice, on and off the mats. Learning to apply these virtues in everyday life helps extend our teaching beyond the gym.
Our club is active in the community as we are always trying to better the place we call home. Whether it's through hosting an Open Mat every week and giving the donations to our local SPCA, supporting other small businesses or teaching Women's Self Defence, we try our best to give back to a community that has shown us so much support throughout the years.
Dark Horse Martial Arts believes in helping people achieve their goals. Whether your goal is to be part of a community, learn to defend yourself, or get healthy, we will help you become the best possible version of yourself while reaching those goals!
