Meet our students.

We're a diverse bunch. We're young, we're old. We're doctors, programmers, students, artists, actors, and even race car drivers!

We all started Jiu-Jitsu as beginners, and have grown to love it.

Meet Ken.

I was a overweight kid. I used to get bullied all the time. Then once I learned how to defend myself, no one decided to bully me anymore. But I just carried on because it was fun.

Meet Jennifer.

It's kind of terrifying to think you don't know how to defend yourself. Having knowledge and feeling empowered is just an incredible feeling. It's also wonderful to find something entertaining to do and get an incredible workout.
