In Kitchener / Waterloo Alliance is represented by Dragan Brazilian Jiu-jitsu with the “Mad Scientist” of grappling, head instructor, Dragan Konjevic, and assistant instructor, Eric Yu. Our headquarters is in Waterloo and is a great environment in which to learn and have fun – from the beginner to the advanced grappler. Dragan himself is one of the most selfless and dedicated coaches you could possibly find.
For the beginner: join in for your first free trial class, and then you will become addicted afterwards. We train in the gi, or “kimono”, which is the traditional uniform very similar to a judogi, and we also train no-gi, wearing shorts, t-shirts, or rash guards. There are varying levels of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu gis. A cheaper gi is fine, but the rigors of day to day grappling can wear out or even rip the thinner variety. Ask and we can find a gi that’s perfect for you. Shower facilities are available. Ensure your finger and toenails are trimmed. Every class is tailor made for any experience level, or fitness level, separated into groups.
Dragan Alliance Brazilian Jui-Jitsu is located at 420 Weber St. North #F1 in Waterloo, Ontario. It is also about a few blocks from Wilfrid Laurier University as well as the University of Waterloo and their surrounding residences. Our gym is also highly accessible by public transit as there are many bus stops around it which serve many different bus routes of Grand River Transit
