"I spent my first few years in BJJ training under the tutelage of Ryan. The quality of his instruction is apparent not just in the techniques he teaches, but in the way he breaks down concepts and strategy for competition. In addition, his teaching style provides a calm and relaxed environment in which to learn. After starting with Ryan in 2007, I have since gone on to win multiple titles at the international level. I owe a lot of my success to Ryan and recommend him, especially for new students to the art."
"I have been training BJJ alongside Ryan O'Shea for almost 6 years. I have nothing but good things to say about his Jiu-Jitsu as well as him as a person and teacher. If you are looking to learn from someone with BJJ legitimacy then Ryan is your man."
"Ryan O'Shea has worked with me in MMA, BJJ, Kick Boxing, and Conditioning. He pushed me to reach my mental and physical potential and this elevated my martial arts to a whole new level. Now as one of Canada's top BJJ and No-Gi athletes I can attest that Ryan is the REAL DEAL! I can't wait to see his new location!"
"Nothing but good things to say about Ryan O'Shea. Great BJJ instructor, good training partner and very good MMA coach. Everyone that I know has nothing but glowing reviews of his classes and MMA training sessions. I strongly suggest you check him out!!!!"
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.[..]
