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 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.

In the landscape of Jiu-Jitsu there are legends. Few come close to a living legend the likes of Jean Jacques Machado who is not only a pioneer in bringing BJJ to North America and trains a ‘who’s who’ of A-list martial artists and celebrities but is renowned for producing some of the best Jiu-Jitsu students and black-belts around.

Victoria, BC’s Eke Academy of Martial Arts is honoured and pleased to announce that the school which already brings Jeet Kune Do, Kali, Silat, Madjapahit Martial Arts and Kickboxing to British Columbia’s Capital is now the only affiliate of the living legend in Western Canada.

“This is a huge honour for not only our Academy but for our city and our province,” James Eke, chief instructor and founder of the Eke Academy said. “This brings legitimacy to Jiu-Jitsu in our city and really puts us on the map in a very real way. It has been years in the making and today is a very big day and one worth celebrating for our school, our students and for Jiu-Jitsu in Canada and North America. It is great to be part of seeing Jiu-Jitsu of an incredible lineage like Professor Machado spread here in our beautiful city on Vancouver Island.”

Twice a year the Eke Academy has been hosting Prof Jay Zeballos, full-time instructor at both Jean Jacques Machado Academies (Tarzana HQ and Malibu) and Executive Director of the Jean Jacques Machado Affiliate Program as well as a world champion competitor and Machado BJJ Third Degree Black Belt, and has been working closely with him to create and maintain a top-notch Jiu-Jitsu program at EAMA.
