Our mission at The Submission Academy in London, Ontario, is to provide a safe, positive atmosphere that encourages students to set, meet and exceed personal goals in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. We are a proud member of the Robert Drysdale Jiu-Jitsu family. Submission Academy is run by owner/instructor Steve Poulin and his wife Jane. Steve is a very experienced competitor and instructor, with over ten years of experience. He started his grappling studies with Japanese Jiu-Jitsu, and is now focused on bringing top level BJJ to London. Jane is a powerhouse of a white belt and will surely give the women in the area a great outlet to excel in jiu-jitsu and self-defense.

    The Submission Academy has helped me improve my game by leaps and bounds. My cardio, conditioning, awareness are all getting better. Its an awesome club with a amazing instruction and a great attitude!

  2. Mic Salimen says:

    I joined this BJJ club several months ago. Immediately the members and Instructor made me feel welcome even though I had been training at another club for 4 years previous. He actually took a minute to introduce me to everyone that was there that day The first thing I noticed was the positive, team atmosphere here.

    The head Instructor at this club is Steven Poulin, a purple belt under Robert Drysdale. Steve has a passion for BJJ and for teaching like no other instructor I have ever had before. His high energy personality along with his attention to minor details has propelled my game in a short amount of time. Whether your looking to just train BJJ casually or if your looking to compete, Steven’s program will fit for you. Steven takes it as a personal challenge to observe and study my game to make it as good as it can be. He also ensures that you are ready for competition both technically and physically if that is what you are looking for.

    After being here for a few months I know that I made the right decision when leaving a previous club to train full time at the Submission Academy.

    I’m a proud member of The Submission Academy. The atmosphere is positive from the moment you step through the door. Steve, the instructor has the ability to break down complex techniques so that everyone can learn. He will push you at the level you need until you find that you want to push yourself even more and than he will kick it up a notch. As one of few females that train Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, in London, it is fantastic to have a skilled female training partner in Jane (Steve’s wife and business partner) If you want a positive, friendly and skilled school to train, this is the place to come to!

    I walked into this gym without any prior knowledge of Jiu Jitsu, Initially looking to improve my health and lose weight, The owner and instructor was very friendly. The gym is very clean, the mats are cleaned before every class. The positive attitude and encouragement from the staff and other members kept me motivated and determined. Within months I had lost 35 pounds, gained self confidence and feel confident in my ability to defend myself. The attitude towards competition is also amazing, the hard work pays off, and it’s a great feeling knowing you have these guys in your corner. The Submission Academy is the place to be whether you are looking to learn Jiu Jitsu for your personal fitness and health or you are looking to compete.

  6. Rob kerr says:

    I have had a heavy interest in the sport of jui jitsu for qiute a while. I have found myself bouncing from club to club looking for the right atmosphere. Along my SHORT travells i came across bad coaching, skin infections, lousy attitudes etc… i lost focuss and interest.
    I took an offer to train for 1 week FREE at The Submission Academy and i found my home, head instructor Steve Poulin and members of the club are simply AWESOME!!
    Being part of this team has sparked my interest and love for grappling again.
    Thanks to T.S.A
