Jiu Jitsu Calgary Testimonials

My Doctor actually shook my hand and said he had never seen such a drastic change in a persons health...

I started training in Jiu Jitsu 6 months ago. Having been severely overweight (100 pound plus) I was somewhat reluctant to begin any kind of regiment that would interfere with my less than healthy lifestyle. Fortunately I started a new job where I got to know Sensei Malcolm. 
After about 6 months of prodding by him, and procrastinating by myself, I decided to give it a try. It was one of the best decisions of my life.
When I started I had the usual fears of starting a new program with a lot of people who had been there longer and had more training than myself, but the fears were soon put to rest by the helpfulness of the people that I thought I would feel intimidated by. Not only were they eager to help, but they also gave me the confidence to pursue a complete change in my life as well as my attitude towards it. 
Maybe someday you may see my story in a book, with the foreword being a tribute to Sensei Malcolm,  Kelly also helped me develop a better nutritional plan than the fast food one that I had taught myself, and the other students who constantly surprise me with their support. 
Drop by the club and feel free to talk Sensei Malcolm or myself about the complete life change that I have achieved with the help of this training.
If you knew me then and now you wouldn't believe it, I still have trouble doing so. And if I can do it so can you. 
Just a footnote, after getting a physical examination after training for only 4 months, my Doctor actually shook my hand and said he had never seen such a drastic change in a persons health, which by the way he said is now perfect. 

Thank you

- "Jiu Jitsu is for Everyone"...

"I started training in jiu-jitsu about 6 months ago. I had no prior martial arts experience or training. I like it so much that it has become a regular part of my lifestyle.

The benefits of jiu-jitsu to me are numerous, first and foremost you’ll be able to defend yourself if you were ever confronted or find yourself in a situation were someone wanted to bring harm to you.

What I like the most about jiu-jitsu is the fitness aspect of it. Being into fitness and playing sports it compliments me quite nicely that way. Improved cardio,strength, flexibility and overall health and well being. The workouts we do besides the training are great.

But most of all we have a lot of fun and get to meet new people all the time.

I would recommend jiu-jitsu to anybody as it has many benefits and will enhance the quality of your overall health well being. Give it a try".

- "I have Complete Confidence in my Ability to Defend Myself"...

"Like many people looking to join a martial arts club, I found the options quite overwhelming. After a great deal of due diligence which included attending classes at several different clubs, I decided to join Jiu Jitsu Calgary. After just one (complimentary) class I knew it was the Martial Art, and more specifically, the club for me.

Jiu Jitsu Calgary and Sensei Malcolm Bale take a practical approach to Self Defence. As a result of the training I have received, I have complete confidence in my ability to defend myself if faced with the need to do so.

Sensei Malcolm Bale is, without a doubt, a master in the art of Jiu Jitsu. However, it is his ability to pass that knowledge on to others that warrants the greatest merit. Sensei Malcolm constantly challenges you to push your physical and mental boundaries while still keeping the training atmosphere light and fun".

I discovered Jiu Jitsu Calgary that I found a club offering everything I was looking for...

“I’ve been training at Calgary Jiu Jitsu for nine months, after having trained various styles of martial arts over the last eight years. Jiu Jitsu had interested me for several years but it wasn’t until I discovered Jiu Jitsu Calgary that I found a club offering everything I was looking for. Sensei Malcolm has not only high level technical knowledge but also a level of personal integrity difficult to find in today’s day and age. His love of Jiu Jitsu is reflected not only in his dedication to the dojo but also in his consideration of his students.

Personally, I was looking for a club where not only I could train, but where I could enrol my children in order to pass along my love of Martial Arts. Having trained at various clubs in the past I can say that Calgary Jiu Jitsu’s Little Samurai program is second to none. Sensei Malcolm and Sempai Sean are fantastic with the children, instilling discipline and raising their safety awareness while at the same time having fun. Every week my children can’t wait for Jiu Jitsu class.

I am grateful for a dojo where I can not only learn high level Jiu Jitsu but also do so in a welcoming family environment.”

First, and foremost, a set of skills developed as a conditioned response that...

Jiu Jitsu Calgary has given me several things very valuable to me. First, and foremost, a set of skills developed as a conditioned response that can be used to defend myself against almost any threat. Second, the confidence necessary to protect myself and those around me in dangerous situations. Third, a friendly and safe environment to train and develop my skills, and build my conditioning. Fourth, encouragement to improve and succeed. Lastly, a great group of people I can now call friends.

The difference I noticed before joining Jiu Jitsu Calgary and now is like night and day, and all it took initially was the courage to try it out. You're not too old/fat/weak/uncoordinated, or whatever other excuse you can think of... you're more than likely just afraid to take that first class. Fear prevents us from doing all kinds of things we wish we could do. Have no fear. Take it from me, step outside your comfort zone and give it a try. It's worth it... after all, what you learn here could save your life.
