Ahmad (Alex) Zahabi
Alex Zahabi started his BJJ journey in the late 90’s when his brother, Firas Zahabi, introduced him to the martial art. At that time, he was beginning a science PhD program at McGill but was also intrigued by the effectiveness of BJJ techniques. Alex trained regularly and started coaching the martial art in Montreal in 2002 as a purple belt. On his way to achieving his black belt in 2013, he taught at some of Canada’s leading martial arts academies, including Tristar gym in Montreal, before founding Burlington BJJ in 2009. Alex has since helped his students achieve success at various reputable local and international tournaments.
