Rodrigo Resende BJJ Academy LogoRodrigo Resende Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Academy in Spruce Grove is opening its doors to offer adults and children from Spruce Grove and surrounding areas the best martial arts, fitness and self defense instruction around.

Professor Rodrigo Resende and his awesome team of instructors teach all classes. The school’s emphasis is on self-improvement, and not just self-defense. The development of self-confidence, self-discipline, and respect through martial arts training here enables students to resolve conflicts peacefully and avoid confrontation.

In addition to scheduled training programs, our school will regularly hold special training sessions, open workouts, extra help opportunities and social events. Children love our birthday parties, movie nights and summer camps.

Opportunities to attend and participate in tournaments are provided regularly. Our school holds inter-school tournaments and attends many local, national and international competitions. Competing locally, nationally, and internationally our students have won many championships.

Our 2200 sq. foot facility includes a 1600 sq. foot of top quality Dax tatami mat on top of a special impact absorption subfloor and wall protection surrounding the whole training area. We also have a waiting room with comfortable seats for 20 guests, as well as restroom facilities and private changing rooms. Visitors and parents are always welcome to observe classes.

All of this combines to make Rodrigo Resende Academy in Spruce Grove, Edmonton and Western Canada’s leader in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Judo, Sambo, fitness, self-defense, and self-improvement.
