When seeking conditioning training for hockey, many of todays young hockey players hit the gym and begin lift or run, yet because of little guidance and professional supervision they end up injured or discouraged and abandon the gym. Recently a few young players have chosen a more unconventional way to develop conditioning for their chosen sport.

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, aka BJJ, this martial art not only develops but has shown to greatly improve the same athletic attributes that many of todays high level hockey players have. Increased physical attributes like speed, power, strength, explosiveness, body mechanics, timing, sensitivity, awareness, accuracy, footwork, distancing, agility, line familiarization, flexibility, balance, coordination and endurance are what bring life and vibrancy to your techniques.
