“We could tell from the moment we walked in that this was the place for our girls. This school goes beyond our expectations. The professional, patient, thoughtful, kind, fun instructors and staff made us feel like family. The facility has everything we need, it’s clean and has plenty of space for training and spectators. The billing system is easy and overall runs like a well-oiled machine. The classes are fun but firm and conducive to learning for all ages. This sport and school is by far the best in our opinion, teaching our kids leadership, patience, strong work ethic, paying attention to detail, respect, and comradery, all the things that will help build a strong adult prepared for the world. We are so happy we found our BJJ home!”
