  •   I moved to Hamilton and started training under Jeff and his Cadre of Black Belts just over a year ago. Previously I trained under Rodrigo Munderuca in Winnipeg and Mike Yackulic in Edmonton, both amazing instructors. The dedication and skill level of EVERY Belt at Joslin's is on a level I have not seen before. This is no disrespect to my previous instructors as they have great clubs and great people. This is to say Joslin's really is something special and anyone who has any inclination of trying a martial art near Hamilton should come to Joslin's first. You won't regret it!

  •   i signed up as a member approximately 7 years ago now and have never looked back. As a member, it is hard not to feel part of a strong loyal family unit. Strength was found in mind, body and spirit on the mats, transcending into daily life. The Joslins team is supportive, the quality of instruction is superior and words can not fully portray how grateful i am to be part of such an amazing community.
