Welcome and thank you for taking the time to visit the Canadian Jiu-Jitsu Union's Web site.

Our services may be of assistance to you if you are missing important issues and opportunities in your martial arts endeavours.

Let me pose some questions to you:

Are you a Black Belt instructor without a Sensei or any credible martial arts organization to look out for your furure Black Belt Dan rank promotions, martial arts education, development and qualifications?

Are you a Dojo owner and chief instructor who has students coming up in the Ranks but you cannot grade them any higher because they may be graded just under your own Dan Rank?

Do you have you the opportunity to obtain and/or participate in advanced training, learn new teaching skills, improve your martial arts technique skills and knowledge under the direction of a licenced martial arts teacher.

Do you have a qualified Sensei who can observe your teaching abilities while in action on the matt and give you positive feedback in order to improve your skills?

Are you seeking a way to learn more and/or help you advance in rank and achieve qualifications to become a better teacher?

Are you in a situation where you are attampting to help a young person or yourself, in coping and how to handle situations that may require skills in the form of self-protection and self-defense?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, please keep on reading to find out how the Canadian Jiu-Jitsu Union may be of assistance for you in achieving your objectives.
