Our community is made up of corporate leaders, professionals, parents, trade specialists, former athletes, TV & film personalities and students from Leaside as well as other parts of the GTA. We pride ourselves on providing a safe, positive and familiar environment, where you are free to set your own goals and learn at your own pace. We make the learning process as simple as possible by breaking down each technique step by step, consistently reviewing material and keeping you mentally and physically engaged.

4Points Head Instructor David Thompson is a Brazilian Top Team Black Belt under Fabio Holanda. Born and raised in Montreal, David started training Brazilian Jiu Jitsu in order to get in shape and blow-off some steam. After falling in love with the intellectual aspect of the sport (and losing 30 lbs. in the first 3 months), he decided to make Jiu Jitsu a part of his daily life. He has taught in Montreal, Ottawa, Mexico and Dubai and opened the first jiu jitsu academy in eastern Africa, before settling here in Toronto. With a background in engineering, David has a detailed and conceptual approach to teaching that is rooted in logic and efficiency.
