5 Elements Martial Arts - Calgary, Alberta, Canada

Introducing judoka Steve Bentham

We’re excited to announce that we have a judoka now training with us at 5 Elements Martial Arts!

Steve Bentham has been training Judo since the age of 9 and brings a wealth of experience to 5 Elements.

In his own words:

“I took up Judo aged 9 because I thought my older sister looked cool in her Judo Gi. Judo has been a part of my life ever since. 

I started at local clubs in Lincoln, England before joining Grimsby Judo club in my early 20’s. Here, I got to train with Olympic, World, European and All Japan medalists Sharon Rendall and Diane Bell as well as being among many members of the British Judo squad. I gained my coaching licence in 2003 and coached at Cherry Willingham Judo Club before realising that I wanted to carry on competing. I gained my 1st Dan Black Belt aged 23 and was a competitive Judo player until moving to Canada in 2012 and spent years fighting in every competition I could get to.

I love Judo and am excited to be able to share some of that at 5Elements whether it be Judo for Jiu Jitsu or stand alone Judo classes.”

Steve will be helping our Brazilian Jiu Jitsu students with their stand-up game during Wednesday night classes. We may be adding stand alone Judo classes in the near future, stay tuned for details!
