Rave Review: Lin Martial Arts is an Amazing Academy

"Lin Martial Arts is an amazing academy. I'm brand new to Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) and have only been training here for 2 weeks - but I'm already hooked. Not only is Steve Lin an incredible instructor, but he has created a culture of teamwork. I've found all of the more experienced students to be extremely friendly and more than willing to help. I would genuinely recommend these classes to everyone!"
- Justin Tanas, New Student, Markham

Rave Review: The Level Of Jiu-Jitsu here is GREAT!

"Me and JT Torres just came up to Toronto and stopped by Steve Lin's school. They ran a great competition class. The level of Jiu-Jitsu here is GREAT. Super technical guys. The facilities are awesome. I love the showers in back! That's great. They have a super friendly atmosphere. And I just want to thank Master Lin for letting us come up and train. Thank you so much!"

What is Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) and Submission Wrestling?
BJJ classes in Toronto/Markham

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (aka Gracie Jiu-Jitsu/BJJ/GJJ) is a highly-effective yet easy to learn martial art. You may have even seen it on TV shows like The Ultimate Fighter and the UFC. It is the worlds most effective and proven grappling art, involving throws, pinning and escaping techniques, chokes, armlocks, and leglocks. Size, strength, or speed are not pre-requisites to becoming proficient in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. It's techniques enable even smaller people to overcome larger, stronger opponents.

Submission Wrestling is the equivalent of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu without the traditional uniform (gi). BJJ serves as the base for our Submission Wrestling System. But at Lin Martial Arts, we go a step further and also incorporate the best elements of Olympic-style wrestling (Freestyle and Greco-Roman), Judo, Sambo, and other grappling arts into our system to ensure our style stays at the forefront of effective grappling arts.

What are our classes like?
a BJJ Class in Markham Our BJJ/Submission Wrestling classes are appropriate for men, women and teens (over 14 years old) of all ages and fitness levels (no one is too old or too out of shape!). Each class is a fun and enjoyable workout that will build muscle tone, cardio, flexibility and coordination. You will get in great shape, you will learn how to use your body to it's MAXIMUM potential, you'll gain tremendous self-confidence, AND you will learn amazing self-defense/combat skills.

We serve everyone from the fitness-minded person who is looking for a fun way to get or stay in shape while learning an EFFECTIVE martial art, and the very serious athelete who is looking to compete and win medals.

As seen on TV!
Royce Gracie in the UFC, winning from the bottom position You may have seen Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu in action on TV shows such as SpikeTV's The Ultimate Fighter, or on pay-per-view events such as the UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship). In the early days of these events, martial artists from different styles (e.g. Boxing, Wrestling, Judo, Karate, Kung Fu, etc) would compete against one another. In these early competitions, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu practitioners showcased to the world the power of their style by dominating all other competitiors, who often-times were much larger and stronger.

BJJ used in MMA Nowadays, fighters such as Georges St.Pierre (BJJ Black Belt), Anderson Silva (BJJ Black Belt), Cain Velasquez (BJJ Purple Belt), Frankie Edgar (BJJ Purple Belt), B.J Penn (BJJ Black Belt), Jose Aldo (BJJ Black Belt) and Lyoto Machida (BJJ Black Belt), (just to name a few) are all examples of fighters with strong grappling and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu experience. In fact, almost every successful professional Mixed Martial Arts fighter will have Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and Submission Wrestling (aka no-gi Jiu-Jitsu) training. It's record in the ring has been so convincing, that it has become a staple of many modern law enforcement and military combat training programs around the world.

Why is Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu ideal for Self-Defense?
BJJ used in Military TrainingPolice statistics show that over 85% of assaults end up in a grappling situation. And Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is one of the most effective martial arts on the planet for these scenarios. It gives you the ability to turn once-vulnerable situations into situations where you are in total control. Our classes teach you how to:

  • use leverage, balance, and body positioning to overcome a larger, stronger opponent
  • escape any pin or hold down
  • avoid being tackled to the ground
  • render an opponent unconscious no matter how big they are
  • totally control and neutralize an opponent
  • force an opponent to surrender (aka "tap out")
  • and much, much more!


Rave Review: For A Maximum Security Prison Officer

I've known Steve for around five years and in that time the knowledge he has shared with me has become invaluable. I work as a Correctional Officer in a Maximum Security Prison and occasionally the inmates react to situations with violent outbursts. Not only has the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Steve has taught me saved my life but it has also saved the lives of other staff members and inmates. During the course of my work I've encountered situations where I have been attacked and was able to control the situation in a safe and effective manner using BJJ. I've also encountered situations where my fellow staff members have been attacked and again the BJJ I've learned from Steve was the main reason the outcome was in my favor. I have also been able to protect the lives of inmates from other violent inmates with BJJ. It's incredible the confidence and ability that I now possess as a result of being a student of Steve Lin. I cannot imagine (nor do I want to) what my life would be like without this knowledge and am excited to continue learning. Thanks to Steve, I am who I am today.
- Shawn G., Maximum Security Correctional Officer, Toronto

Rave Review: I Trained For Years At Another School Prior ... Lin Martial Arts Is A Far Superior School!

"I am a firm believer that BJJ (Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu) is the best martial arts to learn as a female. Not only is it great for self defence purposes, but it’s also a fun way to get in shape. I trained for years at another school prior to discovering Lin Martial Arts and know that Lin Martial Arts is a far superior school! Steve Lin is an amazing instructor - having mastered the techniques of BJJ and the art of teaching BJJ. The students at LMA are welcoming and very helpful which makes it a great learning environment. Brazilian Jiu jitsu has enhanced my life in many ways and I look forward to continuing my journey at Lin Martial Arts!"

- Christine La, North York
Rave Review: Lin Martial Arts Is Perfect For A Beginner

When I joined Lin Martial Arts I instantly knew it was the right choice. Excellent instruction, a friendly environment, tons of students who aim to not only better themselves but also you in the process( just to name a few points). The gym is perfect for a beginner, and as evident from the dozens of experienced BJJ practitioners, a perfect playground for the experienced. Whether your ultimate goal is to compete, simply learn a great martial art, or you're unsure yet, I highly recommend anyone to try out Lin Martial Arts. The gym truly embodies the martial arts spirit of respect, passion, and skill.

- Shoeb Mohammed, New Student, Markham
Rave Review: Lin Martial Arts Is At An Entirely Different Level Compared To Anything I Have Done Before

I have done several martial arts in the past none of which I found interesting until I came to Lin Martial Arts. I could say it has a friendlier environment and higher quality instruction, but the best way to describe it would be to say that this gym is at an entirely different level compared to anything I have done before. Everything happens at your own pace and you get to decide what you want to work. Jujitsu in this gym has offered me a new interest in life, a goal to work towards and much better fitness. The only way to understand is to come in and try a week at the gym to feel the difference.

- Ron Tsang, Markham High School Student, Grapplers Quest GOLD Medalist
Rave Review: Steve Lin is hands down one of the most technically gifted instructors out there

I have had the privilege to train jiu jitsu around the world and Steve Lin is hands down one of the most technically gifted instructors out there. I directly attribute Steve's teaching to my personal success in the sport. Lin Martial Arts is a great place to train, make new friends and learn new things about jiu jitsu and what you are capable of. Go check it out!

- Matthew Kocal, GOLD Medalist 183lbs, 2010 AbuDhabi Pro North American Wildcard BJJ Championships
Rave Review: I Was Just A Skinny Kid From Markham Who Accepted The Challenge Of A Lifetime And WON!

The Lin Martial Arts TEAM has done amazing things for me in so many ways. It opened my eyes to the actual and realistic aspect of fighting. Everyday you get better just by training and listening to top quality instructors. I've never been apart of anything so effective towards what it promises. If you had told me 2 and a half years ago that I would place Bronze in the BJJ Ontario Open in a weight class higher than what I am, get GOLD at the AbuDhabi Pro North American Wildcard Championships and compete in the Absolutes and win a match against an opponent 40lbs heavier, then I would've probably laughed at you. But the fact of the matter is that I did it! And I owe it all to the abstract thinking and the complex techniques that Steve Lin and the TEAM of Lin Martial Arts teach everyday. If I could do this, so can you! I was just a skinny kid from Markham who accepted the challenge of a lifetime and won, and so can you. What are you waiting for? Your journey for greatness starts here!

- Marc Fontaine, GOLD Medalist 139lbs, 2010 AbuDhabi Pro North American Wildcard BJJ Championships
Rave Review: The Only Regret I Have Is Not Starting At Lin's At The Very Beginning

"I have trained BJJ (Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu) in many different gyms in Canada, Hong Kong, and Singapore. Of all of them, I truly find that Lin's teachings are of the best quality hands down.

BJJ has always been something difficult for me to pick up. I would learn a bunch of different submissions and defenses which is all great, but I had a difficult time to either remember them, or to apply them when I'm rolling.

With Lin's school, in TOTAL honesty, I feel like I've achieved more in 6 classes, than in 6 months with any other school. It's really in the quality of the Lin's teaching that makes his BJJ gym so great compared to many others. He has names that make any series of moves easier to remember, explains all the minor details that help make a submission or defense work, and most importantly, speaks perfect English. =D

The only regret I have is not starting BJJ @ Lin's @ the very beginning.

I would HIGHLY recommend him to anyone that wants to thoroughly develop their BJJ skills."

- Cordon Lam, Markham / North York
Rave Review: This Gym Will Not Only Get You Where You Want ... It Will Get You There AT LEAST TWICE AS FAST!

"Having trained at other gyms before, I can really appreciate what Lin Martial Arts offers to its students. One of its best attributes is its CURRICULUM. With his methodical approach to teaching, Steve has created a SYSTEM that produces waves of top-quality grapplers from white belts to brown belts. This allows for a wide range of training partners differing in experience and styles. Lin Martial Arts made my training so efficient, that I was able to achieve great results during competition. I placed first in the 2009 Joslin's Tournament Advanced Division, while being the smallest competitor and studying full-time and working part-time. This gym will not only get you to where you want to be ... it will get you there at least twice as fast!"

- Marc Alan Jhingran, 2009 Advanced Division No-Gi Submission Wrestling Gold Medalist, Joslin's Canadian National Championships
Rave Review: I switched from another gym and found such a difference in the environment

Starting BJJ was intimidating, coming in as a woman was even more intimidating! I switched from another gym and found such a difference in the environment. Everyone has been welcoming and respectful. I recommend Lin Martial Arts for anyone looking for a good gym, great instruction and supportive students!

- Virginia So, Markham
You Will Never Find Better Instruction Than At Lin Martial Arts, No Matter How Hard You Look!

I never really found anything I was passionate about, or anything that I could excell at. But when I got into BJJ I found something to be passionate about and I was fortunate enough to start at the right gym: Lin Martial Arts. What's better then having a passion? Excelling at your passion! And training at LMA has provided that for me. You will never find better instruction, no matter how hard you look!

- Kieran Kichuk, GOLD Medalist, 15 Years Old, 2010 Grapplers Quest Canadian National Championship
Rave Review: I Highly Recommend Lin Martial Arts

If you're in Toronto and you want to learn how to play some Jiu-Jitsu game, or if you want to learn how to strike, or if you want to do anything with MMA, I HIGHLY recommend Lin Martial Arts for Canada and Toronto. They are super respectful, there are no egos when you walk in, you can come in, be brand new, learn something, get a good workout, and when you're done your workout, end up feeling happy and knowledgeable!

- Dominick Cruz, UFC Bantamweight Champion
