Purple, blue and everything Jiu-Jitsu

No, we aren’t talking about bruises

The Eke Academy of Martial Arts held its annual Fall BJJ Camp the weekend of 22 & 23 September, 2017 with Prof Jay Zeballos.

The weekend was special already in that it was the first official camp with the Eke Academy being the only Western Canadian Affiliate of the Jean Jacques Machado Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Association and the association’s director on the mats showing us what true Jiu-Jitsu is all about.

We were also blessed by having Oregon’s Prof Boaz Brizman up again helping Prof Jay enlighten everyone and our Guro James Eke’s training partner — and incredible purple belt — from California, Guro Brenda King on the mats as well.

At the end of the camp Prof Jay surprised everyone with four students (Mel Kaltsidis, Matt Fong, Robert Lepage and Joseph Dolan) being promoted to blue belt, stripes on the belts of many of our white belts and our school’s chief instructor, James Eke, earning his purple belt.

Next up for the Academy is the Jean Jacques Machado Affiliate Camp in October.

There are amazing things happening at our school. If you have an interest in learning Jiu-Jitsu the way it is supposed to be, from a lineage that is second to none, come by and try us out — all new students get their first month for only $20.
