About Us


Tried & True

Life is hard, so is Jiu Jitsu. 

Through struggle, effort, and failure we learn about ourselves and the world.   True in life and sport, being Tried & True means you have put in the effort and have come out the other side better. You know what works and what doesn't. You've proven yourself effective, tested, reliable; you've proven yourself, Tried & True. 

Conveniently located in Bridgeland, Tried & True is the only Jiu Jitsu gym of its kind in YYC.  Tailored for small class sizes our kids and adult programs focus on the core principles of Jiu Jitsu that will improve your life, on and off the mats. Looking to get fit, learn a new skill, join an enriching community, gain confidence or compete in one of the fastest growing sports? Tried & True is committed to helping you achieve your goals.

The coolest people  in the hood, guaranteed. 


Nothing Good is Ever Easy.

In a world where everything comes easy, Jiu Jitsu does not. Are you seeking a new way to be challenged, get healthier, and build confidence? Come try a class, stay for a week on us. It'll be the best decision you make today and every day after. 


A real life World Champ.

Taught by multiple time International Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Federation World Champion and Pan Am Champion Coach Emily brings not only her rich competition history but passion for Jiu Jitsu to both kids and adults classes. She's kind of a big deal.
