Ian is a student of multiple time world champion Robert Drysdale, and teaches our No Gi Jiu Jitsu program. Receiving rank from both Eddie Bravo, then Robert Drysdale, Ian has trained in numerous grappling styles, but feels nothing is superior to Drysdale Jiu Jitsu for much more than Robert's proven, amazing teaching methodology. Robert's curriculum doesn't include stuff that takes months to learn; he teaches techniques that with the right fundamentals, you can do in competition that day, an MMA fight that night, or a self defence situation – no fluff, simplified, high percentage Jiu Jitsu!
In his twelve years of grappling, Ian has also studied with many pioneer instructors on the southern Ontario grappling and BJJ scene. In addition to pure, raw No Gi Jiu Jitsu, Ian has also studied 10th Planet Jiu Jitsu, various Russian grappling styles, including Russian Sambo, Next Generatin MMA, was a member of the World No Gi Jiu Jitsu association, but has settled with Drysdale Jiu Jitsu after noticing how Robert's teaching methodology turbo charged his own game like no other that he's studied with before. It's hard to go with anyone else after experiencing Robert's no-bull approach to BJJ,

He has developed techniques that are proven at the highest level of combat, for both gi and no gi, that are functional, and are techniques that Robert has developed and consistently uses himself. You can't go wrong with Robert Drysdale's curriculum, whether gi or no gi.
