Dear Parents and Students,
We hope you are healthy and safe during this time.
Unfortunately, due to the present conditions surrounding COVID-19 and the government’s mandate to close all non-essential businesses, we will not be able to resume classes as scheduled on March 30th, 2020.
Therefore, we have put all membership payments on pause for now until the situation improves and we reopen the dojo.
As we monitor how the situation progresses we will have a better idea of when we can re-open the dojo and start classes once again.

When classes start again, we will still offer our membership extension, with classes on Fridays and Saturdays to make up for classes missed.

This is a temporary measure so that everyone stays safe. We look forward to having Adults and Kids back in class again soon!

Look out for our updates!

Best Regards, David and Sandra Lafrance

Capital Conquest 2019!

Hello our Kumo Friends! 

We recently attended the November 2019 Capital Conquest that takes place annually in Gatineau, Canada! 

It was an exceptional experience for Hanshi Lafrance, 9th Dan and Sensei Lafrance, 3rd Dan. 

We had new and old faces on the mat eager to learn the unique art of Kumo Jiu Jitsu. 

In-between our seminars, we had the opportunity to visit and learn from other martial art professionals. This year, we actively participated in a couple Krav Maga sessions. We loved how well it complemented our own fighting style and philosophy of focusing on practical and reliable street defence!

Additionally, Hanshi Lafrance was asked to participate in the Kobudomania Show with an Indigenous presentation.

It was a successful weekend and we look forward to what is in store next year.

Contact us for more info on how you can begin your Kumo Jiu Jitsu training and join us next year at Capital Conquest!
