PROFESSOR OMAR SALVOSA, 3rd Degree Black Belt (Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu)

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu was pioneered in Ontario by a small group of practitioners in the early 1990s, of which Omar Salvosa was a key member. He competed in the some of the first competitions, winning five (5) National titles from 1996-2000 and represented Canada in the World Kobudo Federation's Grappling Championship, winning Gold twice in 1999 and 2000. Returning to competition in 2014 after a 10-year hiatus, he won Gold at the IBJJF No-Gi World Championship and again at the IBJJF Pan-American Championship in 2015 (Masters Black Belt, Featherweight Division). Salvosa was also among Canada's first International MMA competitors with bouts in France (Ultrafight) and Japan (Shooto). He established his own team in 1998, which evolved into Team Ascension, an independent branch of Team Soares and Carlson Gracie Canada.
