NOTICE OF SCHEDULE CHANGE (Sept 2013): We are now back to our regular season schedule. For full details see the class schedule

Republic Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, an affiliate of Rio de Janeiro's Nova Uniao, has been teaching Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) in St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador since 2000. We foster a fun but competitive learning environment, teaching BJJ the way we have been taught by some of the best teachers in the world.

Our mission is to create a world class Brazilian Jiu Jitsu school right here, in Newfoundland and Labrador. We are committed to further our development by bringing in Wagnney Fabiano and Leo Santos for extended sessions several times each year.

Classes are structured to accommodate both the beginner and experienced students. New members are welcome to join our classes anytime! Class objectives are to learn Brazilian Jiu Jitsu techniques; improve physical conditioning and applying these tools effectively.

Our Head Instructor is Paul Woodruff, a BJJ brown belt under Wagnney Fabiano; an instructor under Dennis White of Diversified Combat Systems and Jeet Kune Do Concepts.

Email Paul to be added to our contact list for seminar information, academy updates, general information and or for class cancellations due to inclement weather.

See you on the mats!
