Our History

Welcome to Salmon Arm Jiu-Jitsu! Our academy is rooted in the town of Salmon Arm where the passion for Jiu-Jitsu runs deep. Founded by Rick Dubois, a multi-time World IBJJF Jiu-Jitsu Championship gold medalist, we proudly carry on his legacy as the second generation of instructors.


Shaun and Jessi both grew up in Salmon Arm where Rick nurtured their Jiu-Jitsu and MMA journeys. With 11 and 13 years of experience, they've dedicated themselves to no-gi BJJ, bringing home several gold medals from local and international tournaments, as well as being undefeated in their amateur MMA fights. They carry this experience forward as they teach the serious competitors, the hobbyists, and the next generation of no-gi BJJ practitioners of Salmon Arm.
