What People are Saying
“The Coaches genuinely care”
This is my home away from home. I love training here with my family. The knowledge and experience the collective Coaches bring to the table is world class. They do an amazing job working with all levels, backgrounds and ages and consistently push us all to be better, whether it’s getting a workout in for the day or preparing for competition.
The Coaches genuinely care about the team’s progression and always take their time to be detailed and technical when instructing. More importantly, they consistently encourage us to ask questions and have fun!
Sensei Kevin is an amazing instructor and fosters a safe and respectful environment for everyone. His passion for teaching both judo and jiujitsu shines through in every class and makes us all better players.
