About Us

In the vibrant world of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, it’s not just about learning techniques or getting in shape; it’s about embracing a rich lineage of dedication, discipline, and mastery. At Jiujitsu Montreal, we proudly uphold this tradition, offering classes that are not only exceptional but are led by instructors trained by none other than Henry Akins, a world-renowned black belt under the legendary Rickson Gracie. What’s more, we stand as the sole club in Quebec to have this incredible lineage.

The Henry Akins Connection

Henry Akins is a name synonymous with Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu excellence. As a direct black belt under the iconic Rickson Gracie, Akins has gained worldwide recognition for his deep understanding of the art and his exceptional teaching abilities. At Jiujitsu Montreal, our instructors area all trained by Henry Akins, ensuring that our students receive world-class instruction.

The Gracie Legacy

To truly understand the significance of our lineage, we must delve into the roots of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu itself. The Gracie family, often regarded as the founding fathers of modern Jiu-Jitsu, has left an indelible mark on the art. Rickson Gracie, one of the most celebrated members of the family, is a living legend in the world of martial arts. His mastery of the gentle art is unparalleled, and he has passed down his knowledge to a select group of exceptional individuals, including Henry Akins who has in turn passed it on to us so that we can share it with you.

One of the most remarkable aspects of Jiujitsu Montreal is our exclusivity in Quebec. We are the only club in the province to have instructors trained under Henry Akins. This is a testament to our commitment to excellence and our dedication to offering the highest quality Jiu-Jitsu instruction. When you train with us, you’re not just learning from certified instructors; you’re also tapping into a lineage that connects you to the heart of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.
