    Attendance Challenge Winners!

    Last month we held a friendly competition to challenge members to tackle as many classes as they could in 30 days. Both winners showed tremendous dedication & passion, ending the blitz with an impressive 27 & 28 classes! The instructors had so many good things to say about these two - well deserved guys!



    Greg Francis

    "Greg is an excellent student! He is always eager to learn, respectful and willing to train with anyone. He is a pleasure to teach and always leaves with a smile." "Greg is the definition of a hard worker. He rarely misses class and when he does he makes up for it. As much as Greg is physically strong, he can also be technical and delicate with smaller ....

  •  in Ottawa - 100% Martial Arts & Fitness - A Mindset for Growth

    A Mindset for Growth

    From the day we’re born we get labeled by people in our surroundings. “Oh she’s so cute, she’s going to be beautiful, just like her mom!”. “Oh wow! Already counting! What a smart boy!”.
    Our actions, looks, and mood in one particular moment can define how people see us, label us, and talk about us for a very long time. If you’re a rebel by nature, you’ll probably say: "who cares about what people think and say about me, it doesn’t matter" and I agree. Except that, when you’re 5 years old, you are learning to perceive yourself and the world around you from the adults in your life. So that comment your aunt made ....

  •  in Ottawa - 100% Martial Arts & Fitness - Meet Black Belt Brothers Pier Olivier & Mark-Antoine

    Meet Black Belt Brothers Pier Olivier & Mark-Antoine


    This pair of brothers have been deserving of this mention since the day they started training! In 2012, Pier-Olivier and Mark-André came to us as students in Police Foundations looking to learn a skill that would help shape their careers in the protective services.
    Both have been impressively consistent, always engaged and very dedicated to their training - each driving an hour from opposite ways to meet for class (crazy, right?!). As white belts, they were excited, eager, and humble and as black belts today it is amazing to see that these things have not waivered in them. They are constantly looking to grow and improve and that is something we truly love to see! Pier-Olivier ....

  •  in Ottawa - 100% Martial Arts & Fitness - The Plan/Do/Check/Act Cycle in Martial Arts & in Life

    The Plan/Do/Check/Act Cycle in Martial Arts & in Life

    Do you ever stop to look at the world around you and wonder where you're going? What you're doing? What is the point? I do - all the time, maybe too much. I'm not sure if that's always been the case or if it came as I got wiser but one thing I do know is that living the martial arts lifestyle has sharpened that ability, that skill. I call it a skill because it basically reflects how we learn and how we grow, whether we do it consciously or not. It's the Plan/Do/Check/Act & Repeat
    cycle. For example, in Jiu Jitsu, an instructor will teach you a drill to practice or maybe you're looking to land a specific technique in your free sparring session. This is your plan.

    Learning to Let Go


    Learning to Let Go
    I read an article once about how various cultures perceive time differently and it just changed my life for ever (light bulb moment). In North America for example, time is linear, meaning when you make an appointment for 5pm, it means 5pm on the clock. In a Middle Eastern country, time is cyclical, meaning an appointment at 5pm means anytime after I finish work and before dinner (who knows when that is?!).For North Americans time is money hence their focus on deadlines and punctuality. For Middle Easterns, doing the job right and maintaining harmony is more important than being on time. Ta Da!! Years of frustrations dealing with both cultures explained in one ....

    Improve Kids' Focus & Concentration with Mindfulness

    Ever watch a baby play? It’s fascinating just how attentive they are to everything that's going on around them. For them, everything is worth observing, everything is worth their attention. It's all so interesting. When you watch them, you can’t help but feel somewhat envious of their state of bliss. They’re just enjoying this experience with all their physical senses - no judgement. Just curiosity, just pure observation. This is mindfulness. Mindfulness is innate: this is how we are born. Then, as the brain develops and we start to want to keep up ever-increasing expectations, being mindful becomes increasingly difficult. Our focus is in a constant ....
