Joslins made me feel like part of the family the first week I trained here.  Before joining Joslins I had trained at several gyms around the GTA but by far this is the best place to train.  

Jeff makes you feel at home and is a patient, detail oriented teacher that will help you improve your overall performance as a martial artist and as a person in general.

My 6 year old son has been coming here for over a year. He has recently tried Jiu-Jitsu for the first time, and when I asked him, do you like it?  His answer was, no ! I love it !

The Joslins team has a way with training and reaching each student, and we are so lucky to have them. Thank you Joslins for all that you guys do, my son has learned so much and he is looking forward to advancing with Jujitsu and Karate 🥋

Absolutely phenomenal gym. You will learn more in one year here than you would in two years at most other gyms. Jeff and the entire Joslin’s Team are a great bunch, very supportive learning and training environment. Jeff is a natural teacher who puts a lot of planning into each class. The level of detail and expertise he puts into his classes is very hard to find elsewhere. The number of talented, hard working, and respectful training partners at Team Joslin’s is also very hard to find elsewhere. I spent three years at Joslin’s MMA and had to move for work. It has been very hard to find another gym that compares! If you are lucky enough to live nearby, or even if you are just passing through the area, you have to check this gym out!

First time starting a martial art in mid-40s.  Joined with teenage son and early twenties daughter. Jeff’s instruction is fantastic, you learn the fundamentals while getting great exercise and having fun.

The classes offer something for people of all ages and levels of experience.  I could not be happier to have joined.

If you are even considering starting at Joslin's then take the plunge. You will not regret it. When I first developed an interest in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu I was on the sidelines dealing with some funky injuries. I had a few friends who had trained at Joslin's and they had nothing but good things to say about the gym and the instructors so this is where I chose to train. When I finally started participating it was like a dream come true. I couldn't ask to be part of a better school with better instructors or training partners. It is a very welcoming environment for beginners and there is a ton of opportunity for growth as a martial artist and human. They also offer a free week of training so what do you have to lose ;)?

I was nervous going in, as the last time I did anything strenuous was 25 years ago before I had health problems.  But the instructor Jeff was so welcoming I felt comfortable right from the start.  He has an amazing teaching style of demanding yes, but also very encouraging, motivating, and recognized efforts of people.  

I will be continuing to go and look forward to learning from such a mentor as Jeff...he is the real deal.

Literally the best community - people are so nice, instructors are amazing and higher belts really look out for newbies. I've always wanted to learn some form of martial arts but was scared it would be too intimidating and everyone would be all aggressive and scary - joslins is genuinely the opposite; everyone's one big family and welcoming from the moment you step into the gym. I really miss it and cannot wait to move out after uni so I can go back (concussion from swimming into a wall + protective parents + liking kickboxing much more than swimming = assumption that I was lying about how I got my concussion :')! 10/10 would recommend
I can’t recommend Joslins enough!  Whether you’re looking to get in better shape, learn something new, or compete at the highest level, Jeff is one of the greatest coaches I have ever had the pleasure to learn from.  From the moment I stepped in the doors, everyone has been beyond welcoming and all the instructors truly want to see you succeed.  

I consider Joslins my second family; my training partners my brothers and sisters.  This is a testament to the environment that Jeff fosters within the club.  Come try a free week and you’ll be hooked!

MMA gyms can some times be super intimidating— especially for women. Joslins is welcoming - I not once felt uncomfortable or out of place. Jeff has a fun way of teaching — it all becomes wildly addicting and keeps you coming back!

Joslin's is an incredible gym to be a part of, not only do you get intense workouts, it teaches you valuable skills you can use for self defense and beyond.

Jeff routinely shares the wisdom he has gained over a lifetime of competing at the highest levels, it's a privelage to be able to learn from him.
Anuka J
The best jiu jitsu gym around. Jeff is one of the most renowned jiu jitsu fighters in the country and it is shown through his technique and teaching style at his school.

The flexible schedule makes it easy to attend class regardless of your schedule and his teaching style helps you improve insanely quickly.Highly recommend for anyone new or experienced at the sport.
