Salvosa BJJ martial arts philosophy in Toronto

At TEAM ASCENSION, we specialize in producing an OPTIMAL training environment for students. Champion athletes and true martial artists are cultivated through the harmonization of body, mind and spirit. Every training session at the Salvosa BJJ Ascension Martial Arts Academy is expressly designed to provide students with tools for RAPID GROWTH AND DEVELOPMENT in their chosen art. This growth is tangibly achieved through bringing the BODY to peak levels of conditioning, thereby strengthening the MIND and nurturing the SPIRIT. Our teaching methodology is built on this premise, producing undeniable results and positive changes in our wellbeing. Our students range from recreational practitioners to fierce, active competitors from EVERY WALK OF LIFE. The one commonality among our students is their RESPECT for their training and for each other.

Each student is encouraged to set and achieve realistic goals:

GET INTO THE BEST SHAPE OF YOUR LIFE. We utilize the most innovative methods from a martial arts training regime to promote a HIGH LEVEL of cardiovascular and anaerobic fitness. Rather than just “hitting the weights”, students will develop core functional strength through plyometrics (explosive exercises) and also through interactive training with a resisting opponent.

HEALTHY BODY, HEALTHY MIND. Those last few exercise repetitions are the most telling: if you can work through these, you can win a championship match or defend yourself against a bigger, stronger opponent. No different than conditioning our body to do more repetitions, we can also condition our mind to be more resilient in any given situation. There is a CONNECTION between physical health and mental wellbeing, which is at the HEART of our training philosophy and it is our goal to develop and strengthen this connection in our students.

WARRIOR SPIRIT. Our training is founded on the RESPECT we have for each other. The training environment is optimal when you can genuinely TRUST your teammates. The training atmosphere works at peak performance levels when people are able to challenge their own limits while maintaining the safety of their peers. The environment is FRIENDLY and RELAXED enough for students to go at their own, comfortable pace, but also CHALLENGING enough to bring out the best in EVERY student, at EVERY class.
