Curriculum based instruction

The main focus of jiu-jitsu is not striking but in controlling and diffusing a situation .

Innercity Martial Arts started as Shah Franco Martial Arts in 1992, and was one of the first clubs to teach Brazilian Jiu Jitsu in Canada, and the first in Toronto. Needless to say we have decades of experience teaching the people of Toronto the techniques, methodology, and philosophy of awareness and inner calm that is the core of jiu-jitsu.
