From Our Founder
My name is Jack Bateman, some prefer to call me “Jiu-Jitsu Jack”. I am extremely pleased to bring my vision of a safe, modern martial arts facility to this wonderful area of the GTA. As a child, I was raised in the Richmond Hill area. I felt compelled and proud to open our facility here.
My love for martial arts began about in 2001 and has become my life’s passion. Starting in 2008, I operated one of Canada’s most accomplished MMA promotions, “W-1 MMA” to this day
the only Canadian company to ever promote in the United States. W-1 MMA soared in popularity, inking T.V. deals with Fox Sports, The Score and Tuff TV, reaching nearly 100 million homes in North America.
With the contacts and knowledge acquired in the martial arts industry and a new baby on the way (baby is now 10), opening this facility seemed to be the perfect fit. I invite you to come and see our facility. We will be excited to show you around!
