Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a highly complex sport that requires Mental Fortitude balanced with one’s own Physical Abilities and Technical Skills.

Socius’ modern approach applies our unique Sport Development Philosophy which includes not only teaching the Foundational Techniques, Concepts and Strategies, while understanding and leveraging each student’s Unique Physical Capabilities.

Understanding the individual’s Unique Physical Capabilities allows us to develop a system that works specifically for each student. We account for differences in Speed, Flexibility and Strength, and while helping the student strengthen their weak areas, each individual learns to adapt the instruction they receive to their strengths, creating a Personal System for them.



Your instructors have spent years travelling the world to train and compete. This has given us the experience of learning at the Best Academies from many of the Best Instructors and Legends in the sport of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.

We continue to develop ourselves as instructors by seeking out the best Modern Sport Development, Coaching Courses, Tactics and Techniques, and we apply them here at Socius BJJ Academy.

Our passion is to provide you with a modern approach to the sport of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu while continuing to honor the traditions and roots of this Martial Art.

Frequently Asked Questions

Most frequent questions and answers about our Martial Arts Programs

Bullies are rooted in insecurity and fear. But our Winnipeg kids martial arts classes grow confidence, focus, and respect. And our group training builds positive social skills and confidence. So long story short: No! Your child won’t become a bully, and there are no bullies in our classes either!

That is up to you! If you need some ‘me time’ — go grab a coffee and relax. Your child is in great hands. If you’d like to stay and observe, you’re welcome to do that as well, and make friends with the other parents. We’ve got a great community here in our Winnipeg martial arts school and can’t wait for you to become part of it.

No way! Some folks come to us who have never exercised in their lives. Others have athlete-levels of fitness. That’s the beauty of martial arts — everyone starts at the same place. And although you’re in a group setting, you’re on your own personal journey. Some people advance faster than others. Every pace is okay. There’s no ego here in our Winnipeg kids and adult martial arts classes. Just support and positivity.

There is no real answer for this! And we’d urge you to be cautious of any school that gives you one. The truth is, the path to black belt is a deeply personal and individual journey. Some folks have natural talent and practice hard every day. Other people need to spend more time building coordination and fitness. 

It’s not about getting to black belt. It’s about you becoming a better version of yourself along the way. As you train, overcome obstacles, make friends, find support — you’ll become a stronger you, inside and out. 

And our instructors here at Socius Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Winnipeg are committed to you every step.

For your first martial arts class here at Socius Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu of Winnipeg — you’ll only need a few things: Comfy clothes, a water bottle, and an open mind. 

It’s perfectly natural to be nervous your first time too. Happens to everyone! As soon as you see how kind and welcoming our community here is, that will disappear. 

Not at all! Winnipeg men, women, and children of all fitness levels come to us, whether it’s for kids or adult martial arts. Come as you are!

Some of our top students were unfit and uncoordinated at first. Now they’re performing techniques they never dreamed possible. The confidence they gained realizing what they were capable of is the biggest gift of the process.

All you have to do is show up. We’ll take care of the rest.
