Is martial arts training at Spartacus
right for you?
We value authenticity, technique, and progress in a co-ed environment.
1. Quality over quantity.
To maintain the best possible student to instructor ratio, classes are capped at 16 students for each Kickboxing class and 10 students for each Brazilian Jiu Jitsu class. Everyone at Spartacus receives plenty of individual attention and personalized coaching.
2. Classes are co-ed.
At Spartacus Gym, men and women train together to help prepare each other for battle in a safe and supportive environment. The training is intense and demanding but if you get knocked down, we will always pick you up.
3. Sport competition & street self-defence applications are covered.
No paper tigers, participation ribbons, or self-delusion at Spartacus. Training at Spartacus means that you will be challenged and tested. The mission is to know yourself and embark on a personal journey of self-discovery through martial arts.
4. Technique over power.
Promoting an environment where technical development is the number one priority is of utmost importance to us. Instead of open-sparring, we focus mainly on in-depth technical break-downs and situational sparring drills to simulate different types of practical scenarios that one would encounter in a real fight. Students are progressed in a methodical, systematic way until eventually, our fighters gain an appreciation of technique, timing, and strategy over aggression and brute force.
5. Authentic fight training.
Spartacus Gym head instructor Roy Duquette has over 20 years of full-contact martial arts experience training with multiple world champions in a wide variety of disciplines. Roy has competed in Muay Thai, Mixed Martial Arts (MMA), Pankration, Submission Wrestling, and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu with thousands of hours of experience as a sparring partner for professional fighters from North America, Asia, South America, and Europe.
