Welcome to Academia BJJ

Academia BJJ is a one-of-a-kind gym established in 2018 by Professor Steve Camara, a highly skilled black belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu under Brent Burniston and Nic Gregoriades. Affiliated with Subconscious BJJ in North Hollywood, California, Academia BJJ offers a unique training environment with a warm and inviting vibe. The use of Edison bulbs and an industrial aesthetic creates a comfortable atmosphere for students to hone their skills. At Academia BJJ, the focus is not just on high level jiu jitsu training, but also on building a strong community with strong morals and ethics. The gym's slogan "Be More Human" encapsulates this commitment to holistic growth for each and every student.


We offer beginner-friendly programs and a variety of training options, including competition training, recreational training, self-defense and fitness, and group or private sessions. Our classes include both GI and no-GI options and feature a great schedule, detailed instruction, and a clean and welcoming facility.

We are conveniently located in Beamsville, making it easy for you to stop by and get moving.

We're excited to announce that new membership registration is now open! If you're new to our gym, we welcome you to take advantage of our free trial. Please note that all visitors are required to complete a waiver and confirm their spot in class. Let's get started on your fitness journey together!
