My daughter and I belong to an affiliate club of OAMA. One of the best decision of our lives was joining the club....it has transformed our lives. Being a part of OAMA and WCMA is like being a part of a much larger family...it's our second home. The instructors are amazing; they truly care about your goals. Love it, love it, LOVE it!!

My kids started training at the Ottawa Academy of Martial Arts after meeting Sensei Hache at a Birthday Party. After watching them train for a year I decided to try it myself, although I had not every done a martial art before. Both my kids and I have grown enormously with the help of the teachers and the other students, physically, socially and emotionally.

The Ottawa Academy of Martial Arts is a pillar of the Ottawa community! For years they have been changing people's lives and supporting the community! You should want your children to experience Professor Matt Hache and his unlimited passion for Martial Arts!

Fantastic academy!!! Professor Pat and Professor Hammer are the best! They run a very professional program with technical instruction and safe training environment. It's been a great pleasure to train and learn from them.

I've been a member here for the past 9 months and cannot say enough good things about OAMA. The instructors are world-class and their dedication to the club is unreal. There's such a great vibe here, the members you roll with become family and you help each other advance and improve. It's such a humbling experience and I highly suggest it for everyone; kids to seniors and everything in between. They offer a free week for anyone that wants to try it out and it's a great way to see how you like it. Everyone is friendly and it makes it so easy to jump in and have fun. If you're considering it, don't think any longer, just stop by!

Alex MacLellan

I've been training here since January and I don't see myself changing schools anytime soon. I'm hooked. The instructors are full time professionals in their disciplines, and they are all very approachable and will make time for students. They always emphasize the students are a team. We are all there to support each other and challenge our training partners to raise their levels! Many of the students compete regularly in regional, national, and international tournaments. The quality of the student body is high. When I attend class I feel like I'm learning from people who are professionals at what they do, which is literally true for some. Everyone who trains and teaches here follows a tone of respect too. I hope to get many years of training here!

Pan Ams Recap & New Podcast with Justin Primrose

Earlier this month, Professor Eric Nadon and Coach Justin Primrose competed at the Pan American IBJJF Jiu-Jitsu Championship in Florida.

We are so proud of their performance! They represented Team Renzo Gracie internationally and didn’t shy away from the competition. They demonstrated courage and bravery going up against the best in the sport.

Justin said, “Pan Ams and Worlds have always kind of been my main goal since I started competing…the biggest thing I took away from this experience is that I can hang out with these top guys at brown belt, I just gotta stay focused, train smart, and not get injured lol”. Even when faced with a wardrobe malfunction (pants ripped) during a match, he wasn’t fazed. “Once I got back on the mats and slapped hands with my opponent, I was back focused and ready to go”.

Being martial artists, they continuously challenge themselves, testing their abilities and their comfort.

“This year’s preparation was really challenging with some injuries and health issues but I wouldn’t do anything differently,” Eric said. “Even though I didn’t get the result I wanted, the experience of my first major tournament at black belt was very valuable to me…competition teaches me about myself and brings me humility, win or lose”.

They are both dedicated to their own growth and development; always learning and training, and putting themselves to the test. They truly are the best!

We want to thank Eric and Justin for setting an example of what true BJJ practitioners really are!

We are grateful they are a part of our team and for their leadership. Oss!
