Rules & Etiquete


Sensei Ameer Mohamed

Sensei Moh began training in the year 2000 as child. He took a brief intermission from martial arts while attending university to study psychology and behaviour science. In his last year of school, he returned, excited to train again. His teaching experience began with volunteering in kids and adult classes as an assistant. He received his Sensei title in 2019 shortly after opening the dojo. He prides himself on being the first Sensei promoted by Sensei Dickenson and has rediscovered his passion for Jiu Jitsu under Eric’s instruction. Sensei Moh runs the dojo full time and is committed to providing a positive environment for everyone to flourish and train.


Sensei Moh is constantly seeking new, fun ways to challenge himself and his students. He has taught martial arts in a variety of contexts including high school programs, ladies self defence nights, camps and other special events. Sensei believes the training should be a mix of fun, challenging and uncomfortable; the adversity and obstacles we overcome in training should give us a mindset to succeed in other areas of life.


His favourite part of the training is studying katas and discovering the techniques, concepts and applications within them. He believes there is always something new to discover, even in things that seem familiar. Sensei Moh is excited to continue training and pursuing higher ranks in Karate and Kobudo. He is also thrilled to continue studying with Eric officially under the Sylvio Behring Association and becoming a recognized instructor in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.

In his spare time he enjoys playing instruments, writing and playing video games.

He values every student, instructor and parent who has made this dream possible.

Sensei David Dickenson

Sensei Dickenson was introduced to karate in his youth back in Jamaica. He began training Goju Ryu Karate and Jiu Jitsu in 1995 and was awarded his Sensei title in 2011. Despite the many years he has been training he still thrives to learn and find new ways to give back to his students.  Sensei D generously donated his time to help construct the dojo.

Sensei Dickenson demonstrates commitment on a whole new level as he commutes to the dojo from Oshawa! Although his classes can be intense, Sensei brings compassion and respect to every class. He enjoys studying details of techniques and understanding their biomechanics to improve kihon and kata. He is a firm believer that with integrity and the right mindset, anyone can go the distance as a martial artist.

His favourite part of the training is figuring things out and problem solving; his analytical nature makes him an excellent training partner and instructor!  Moving forward, Sensei Dickenson aspires to continue his growth as a martial artist by improving his Karate, and pursuing further rankings in Kobudo and Brazillian Jiu Jitsu. Through the Sylvio Behring Association and Eric’s instruction, Sensei is excited to become a recognized instructor in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.

In his spare time he enjoys biking and operating remote control helicopters.

We are grateful for his contribution to the growth and construction of this dojo.

Professor Eric Meyer

In 1998, Eric started training Brazilian Jiu Jitsu under Master Sylvio Behring and Professor Shah Franco with Professor Richard Nancoo. Through the Sylvio Behring Association, he has had the privilege to train with some of Master Behring’s highest ranking professors and has been an instructor since 2014. He currently trains under Professor Jesse Richardson at Matador MMA Academy.

Eric enthusiastically seeks to improve himself and learn. He is a patient instructor who focusses on each student as an individual.  Eric brings an abundance of knowledge and a sense of humour to his classes. His teaching method incorporates efficiency and practicality of techniques and concepts. He believes that the mutual respect between training partners and their safety is essential for progressing in this art. Despite his extensive knowledge, he is always humble.

His favourite part of training is the camaraderie and mental clarity he gets when he steps on the mats. Eric continues to train Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and his students look forward to one day calling him Professor.

In his spare time he enjoys a variety of outdoor activities; fishing, hiking, boating, snowboarding and more!

His guidance and contribution to the dojo is greatly appreciated. 

Congratulations to your recent promotion to Black Belt!
