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.
