The Black Belt College’s “Teacher’s Certification Program” offers Black Belt holders an incentive to become better educated in the Art of Jiu-Jitsu as well as how to teach Jiu-Jitsu.
We recognize the fact that there are many Black Belt individuals who own and operate their own Dojos but have no avenue in which to pursue their advancement in their Black Belt qualifications and Dan ranking. Each and every individual situation has a justifiable explanation.
The Black Belt classes that are held in Ottawa are conducted five times a year on the third Sundays of; September, November, January, March and May (May class date may change because of special holiday weekends). The Black Belt Classes are four hours in duration from 1:00 PM to 5:00 PM.
Classes for the 2018-2019 sessions are:
Sunday, November 18, 2018,
Sunday, January 20, 2019
Sunday, March 17, 2019
Sunday, May 5, 2019
Additional Black Belt classes are also held in various Provinces across Canada by Shihan Steve Hiscoe and Ed Hiscoe, Hanshi.
Kyoshi Steve Hiscoe hosts an annual Jiu-Jitsu Summer camp and and Jiu-Jitsu Winter Camp.
Once you have attended a series of Black Belt classes, you are offered the opportunity to write examinations to achieve Levels 1, 2 and 3 in the Teacher’s Certification Program and achieve a Canadian Jiu-Jitsu Union Black Belt College Teacher’s License.
Professor Georges Sylvain was adamant that the Black Belt College Program be maintained in the highest quality standards and be made available for the training, teaching and education of martial arts instructors so they would be able to earn a teacher’s license through the Black Belt College program and become qualified teachers.
Professor Sylvain’s legacy has been rigidly maintained and there have been numerous Black Belt holders and Dojo owners from across Canada who have been able to benefit and progress in their martial arts education through the Black Belt College’s Teacher’s Certification Program.
This program is also available through Home Study Courses to those individuals who may not be able to attend classes because of the remote areas or distances in where they reside.
