Ayisha Issa & David Thompson have a combined 25 years of experience in BJJ coming out of Brazilian Top Team in Montreal as both international competitors and instructors. With backgrounds in Film & TV, Science, Technology and Design, the couple set out to conceptualise and create a unique experience and community within the landscape of Toronto.
Settling in Toronto's Midtown neighbourhood of Leaside, they took an idea, a vision & a dream and committed to turning it into something they could share with the public. Infused with a bit of their Montreal flair, 4POINTS is a BJJ Academy, an ACTOR Studio, a Kids CLUB HOUSE and a Community, that continues to grow and evolve with each new member.
4PBJJ started on Laird in September of 2016. 9 months later, we gave birth to the 4P CLUBHOUSE: a not-so secret training bunker hidden in the heart of the Bayview village. We converted an old dry cleaning warehouse into a 2000sqft training facility and clubhouse to better serve our growing community. With David's background in engineering and handyman skills, and Ayisha's background in design and project execution, we are proud to say a large majority of the work was done by ourselves and our students.
