Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (No Gi)

In mixed martial arts competition 75-80% of all matches end up on the ground at some point. In real life self-defense situations that percentage increases to 90-95%! The bottom line is, if you are not prepared to defend yourself on the ground, you are not prepared for combat. This is not to say though, that combat should be the goal of your martial arts or Jiu-Jitsu practice. At Tristar Gym Vancouver we believe that the purpose of martial arts, including Jiu-Jitsu or BJJ, is to prepare us so that we do not have to fight. Some of us, however, do have competitive aspirations and for those people combat is an inevitability. We are here in order to facilitate both. We are here to guide those that wish to compete, preparing them mentally, physically, spiritually and emotionally for competition. For those who are looking to get fit, learn to defend themselves, live a healthy lifestyle and surround themselves with people on the same path, we are here for you. You have found your tribe at Tristar Gym Vancouver and we look forward to guiding you on this transformative path!

Gi vs No Gi

Why do we teach BJJ without a gi? It all comes down to grip and time. There are many techniques that are present in traditional gi Jiu-jitsu that become obsolete as soon as your opponent takes their gi top or shirt off. These are still quite valuable techniques to know although they, like all techniques, require a sufficient amount of time for a practitioner to learn and drill before they are useful. That time spent on learning techniques that only apply to very specific situations could be much better spent learning techniques that work no matter what your opponent is wearing.

No Gi Jiu-jitsu does not use grips that rely on clothing but rather rely on the "pockets" of the human body. As long as your opponent has a head, armpits, elbows, knees, ankles and hips, your No Gi Jiu-jitsu will work. This means whether you are training/competing in either Gi or No Gi BJJ, or you are dealing with a self defence situation where your opponent is wearing layers or is shirtless, your jiu jitsu will STILL work!

Come down and give our program a try, we promise not to disappoint!

My little nephew was a very timid and shy kid before he took his first class at Tristar. Months went in and he fell in love with the training and all the fun he was having . He’s been more vibrant and more confident then when he started and He can’t say enough good things about Kajan and the rest of the team .#KidsMMA #Bullyproof #BJJ

If you are interested in martial art come to this place, been going to many gyms but this one is amazing and I highly recommend it for every level. Very humble coaches and high level students. Over all for all the programs that they offer, they are number one 👆. Being able to train and roll with Kajan is different thing tho, 2 months in feels like I know them for ages and learned so many things specially Brazilian jiu-jitsu. Just give it a shot

I have been training kickboxing at Tristar Vancouver and it has been great. Trained at a few places before but love Tristar emphasis on good technique. Will be joining the jiu jitsu and wrestling classes as well in the future.
