Brazilian jiu-jitsu is our specialty, with over 7 classes a week offered! We also offer beginner-friendly striking, wrestling and yoga classes. We also have a Women's Only Self Defense class on Saturdays.
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is primarily a grappling martial art. You'll learn take-downs, throws, and ground grappling, as well as control positions, escaping, and submissions such as arm locks and blood chokes.
Every Monday and Wednesday we offer classes that are beginner friendly. You can come and jump right into class. The DHMA instructors and members are always willing to help new members.
Adult Monthly membership $150

Absolutely! Everyone is welcome on our mats. If you have any worries or concerns, please reach out to one of the coaches before class.
Our club actively participates in local competitions. There are a variety of competitions across Alberta and BC with varying rule sets that allow BJJ practitioners a fun and safe environment to engage in a competitive competition.
The fundamental classes are taught in a manner that is both Gi and Nogi friendly.
No! We support and encourage both Gi and Nogi training. We also have a great selection of club Gi's, rash-guards, fight shorts, and spats available for purchase; although, you are more than welcome to train in your own gear.
The main reason we practise Jiu Jitsu in either a Gi or rash-guard is for hygiene. Contrary to popular belief, it's not just for looks! Both the Gi and rash-guard help prevent an array of nasty skin infections that can occur with skin on skin interaction. It also keeps your sweat off of your opponent. In addition, the Gi does mimic regular clothing, so it's a great way to train self defense for the real world!
