A martial art and combat sport that focuses on grappling and ground fighting. It emphasizes taking an opponent to the ground and utilizing ground fighting techniques and submission holds. Achieving a dominant position on the ground is one of the characteristics of Japanese Jiu-Jitsu.
Kids Jiu Jitsu is taught in a non-competitive, inclusive environment. Teaching your child that they have a right to protect themselves will give them confidence to last a lifetime. Awareness is a skill that can be learned and is the most vital aspect in self defense!
The word “Jiu-jitsu” means the practice of gentleness, and in addition to learning the moves, students also make changes in their characters. Jiu-jitsu focuses and calms the students, with the aim of making them better martial artists and more refined individuals as well. The movements of Jiu-jitsu are efficient, flowing, and circular, and it is a distinctly beautiful martial art to watch.

My wife and I started training with P4P in September 2012. I am over 50 and was never serious on working out (actually, I never worked out). My wife tried different programs with various degrees of results. During our first discussions at P4P, They made us feel that we can start, and improve our physical fitness. For me, I did not want to feel intimidated by my lack of physical ability at a large fitness centre. When we work out at P4P we feel none of that intimidation because everyone that goes there has the same focus to be fit. From the very first time we met the P4P instructors, they always made us feel that one step at a time, our physical health would improve. And so it has. P4P has helped me strengthen specific areas (ie: lower back) that used to give me pain, and now that pain does not exist!! My wife an I are extremely happy with his help and expertise. We would highly recommend P4P to anyone interested in improving their physical health, no matter what age!!
Went in with a few of my best friends, we were all very nervous but left the class feeling motivated. The instructors were very helpful and patient in helping us correct our techniques as we have never taken a muay thai class before. After our first class we signed up for a membership, highly recommend going in to a trial class, you will not be disappointed.
In my first month since joining P4P back on December 1st 2016, I have already lost 10lbs. The classes are awesome and have surpassed my expectations so far. The training staff are great, always providing feedback and areas of improvement. The overall gym atmosphere is positive where you feel welcome regardless of skill level.
I have been training at Pound 4 Pound MMA, Pickering since 2015. During this period I have been impressed not only with the quality of the instruction from the trainers but also the friendly atmosphere. The staff and trainers not only took the time to get to know me but to also understand my motivation for training. I have utilized both classes and Personal Trainers for Muay Thai and have participated in the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu classes.
As a Veteran of the Canadian Armed Forces I have trained in several styles of Jiu-Jitsu in different parts of Ontario. Of all the Dojos I have been to P4P MMA is by far the best training club which I have experienced as there is no EGO and everyone pushes each other to do their best. At events the true comradeship is apparent as we support our fighters.
I have encourage anyone who is interested in training to try P4P MMA – I am sure you will be pleased with the outcome.
Having the pleasure and privilege of sitting under the learning tree of some of the best MMA instructors and P4P Coaches has been both a humbling and truly rewarding life experience. As someone who has only been learning the true art of MMA for about 3 months, I can say, without hesitation that the team at P4P has pushed me beyond my perceived physical and mental boundaries, and has enabled me to continually progress and hone my skills as a fighter. My intention when I started at Pound for Pound was to explore new health and fitness opportunities outside of traditional weight lifting. However, in just three months, I feel I have become fully entrenched in the Mixed Martial Arts Culture thanks to the world-class instruction I receive on a daily basis. I have a great respect for this facility and the coaches who continually look to enhance my strengths, eliminate my weaknesses, and that respect is given right back to me. What began as a hobby has now become my passion. Without question, I would recommend this training facility to everyone! You will learn things about your physical and mental capabilities you never thought was possible!
