FightClub is a place of awaking, not a hall of competition. The four walls that surround its training space are used to cultivate abilities and nurture skills that we can use in today's society. Our approach to learning and self defense is both dynamic and refreshing.
Classes teach the importance of protecting yourself and loved ones. The school is structured to provide life-long self defense skills and teach the value of staying safe. Our approach educates and gives you knowledge that is practical in your everyday life, going beyond the principles of traditions and techniques in SYSTEMA [Russian Martial Arts].
Stuck in an elevator with someone going berserk - no problem. Minding your own business in a crowded bar when a couple of hooligans jump you - no problem.
We don't train for competition. There is no belt system. We don't rehearse choreographed dances that could some how save your neck in a sticky situation. The drills we utilize are tried, true and tested. The technique is modern and applicable to every scenario possible.
Top reason to train at FightClub:
At FightClub you develop the skill set necessary to protect yourself, friends, and loved ones. At the end of the day that's what it's all about.

"Without doubt, the fight skills that you are able to equip your students with are both incomparable, effective and a real world practical line of self defense."
Joseph Gulesserian, MBA
Raised in Toronto's West end, Marzano started his training in a variety of martial arts. His first attempt was in the early 80's with Tae-kwon-do, then Goju Ryu Karate and his last traditional style was Ju-Jutsu.
In the late 90's, he began training in SYSTEMA. His thirst for learning does not stop there as he continues to attend different seminars and obtain other certificates in more non traditional styles like Canadian Defendo, and the Black Arts.
Marz's realistic approach to teaching is directly related to his experiences within the entertainment industry, combining security, bouncing and negotiating skills while diffusing potentially harmful or dangerous situations.
Marz is also a dedicated family man, raising three teenage boys with his wife while living north of Toronto. He spends his free time involved in the local baseball association--coaching teams, giving clinics and helping kids to learn respect, dedication and commitment--while focusing on fun and team spirit.
All you need is to come out to any regularly scheduled class. Please come a few minutes before the class begins. NO APPOINTMENT IS REQUIRED. You will need sweatpants and a t-shirt for training, no shoes, socks are optional.
The introductory fee is $20 - it includes any two classes (each class is 1.5 hour in duration).
It is very important to try a couple of classes before starting the regular training. This is because the methods of training are very different from the traditional approach!
Once you have experienced the training, and made sure that this is what you are looking for, you can join the regular training program.
Most of our members take one-year programs, however, many other arrangements are possible. For your regular training, you are not assigned to the particular classes; you may take classes at different times and days each week. The fees are based on the average number of classes taken per week, and are very reasonable and flexible. Many people chose to take between 2 and 5 classes per week.
Please note, there are no beginners versus advanced classes. Classes are open to everyone. The training is designed in such a way that every level of skill receives extremely beneficial practice and achieves quick results. The atmosphere at the school has always been open, friendly and highly productive.
If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to call or e-mail us!
